Slow Cooker Lasagna Rolls & A Crock-Pot Giveaway

Crock Pot recipes are perfect for family meals. Today I’m sharing a Slow Cooker Lasagna Rolls recipe.

Slow Cooker Lasagna RollsWarm comfort foods and slow cooker recipes are in everyone’s minds when the cooler weather comes around. With the kids back in school we are back on a schedule and eating family meals at home. With the schedule in place, I’ve gotten better about planning out some meals for the week. I like to try to include a slow cooker recipe as often as I can. During the month of October, I’ve joined forces with three other bloggers to celebrate Crocktober! We will be sharing some of our Crock-Pot recipes and we want you to add your Crock-Pot recipes to the link party. I’m starting off the month by sharing a recipe for Slow Cooker Lasagna Rolls.

Slow Cooker Recipes

To make the slow cooker lasagna rolls, cook 12-13 lasagna noodles, depending on what size your Crock-Pot is. Mix together ricotta cheese, eggs, shredded cheese and parmesan. Pour one jar of spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker. Lay the lasagna noodles on a cutting board a couple at a time. Spread 2 ½ to 3 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. I used an Italian seasoning grinder and it added a great flavor!

Roll up the lasagna noodles and carefully cut them in half. Place the lasagna rolls in the sauce in the slow cooker. Continue until the slow cooker is full. Top with 1 cup shredded cheese. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Most of the sauce is soaked up while cooking so serve with more spaghetti sauce.

    I was wondering if you stand the noodles up in the crockpot on the cut end or lay them down on the rolled up seam .

    This may sound stupid but I have reread the instructions three times and I see no instructions as to what to do with the second jar of spaghetti sauce. Do you serve it on the side or top the lasagna rolls before putting on the cheese?

      I’m so glad you asked! Yes, you spoon the sauce on when serving as if you were making spaghetti since most of the sauce you added when baking was absorbed. Here is where, in the instructions, the 2 jars are needed:
      3. Pour one jar of spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker and turn on low.
      9. Most of the sauce is soaked up while cooking so serve with more spaghetti sauce.

      Hi Monica,
      Depending on how much lasagna everyone wants to eat, 8 people would get about 3 lasagna rolls each. Happy cooking and thanks for stopping by!

      Sorry everyone! I’ve been on vacation. I tried responding to this but it looks like my response didn’t post for some reason. Okay, there is only one way you can cut the lasagna rolls in half. If you cut it the right way, you will have 2 short rolls but if you cut it the wrong way the lasagna rolls will unroll and you will just have a bunch of pasta segments. I don’t have an lasgana noodles in my pantry right now but I will buy some and post a photo soon.

      As for just leaving them as they are, without cutting them, you can definitely do that! I wanted to fill my entire slow cooker and I wanted to have the sauce almost cover the lasagna rolls. The only way I could do it without making more rolls and adding another jar of sauce was to cut them in half. If you do leave them whole, I would love for you to stop back to tell us how they turned out!

      I have never tried it due to my family’s preferences but from what I saw online, you can. Mix the cottage cheese with the parmesan and shredded cheese but omit the eggs. Best of luck and thanks for stopping by!
