I had read the previous reviews that indicated it might cook faster, and I think if you have a Crock Pot (as opposed to another type of slow cooker), you will be wise to check it between 3 and 3.5 hours. I used a Crock Pot on low and it was perfect at 3.5 hours. This recipe is easy to make and is moist enough. If you like your lasagna with lots of sauce, I suggest adding another 8 ounces of tomato sauce. I used a crock pot liner for easy clean up and recommend that with any dish like this.

Very good recipe, and easy to make. I doubled the Italian seasoning, and also added 2 tsp. of garlic powder, since my husband likes garlic. Mine cooked thoroughly in 3 hours, so you need to keep a check on it so it won't start to overcook. It's very filling and quite tasty. All I added was a salad and French bread....a great meal.

I made this recipe and it was excellent. Very filling even though it didn't have meat. Very flavorful. : ) I recommended this recipe to several friends.

I have made several different versions of crock pot lasagna, and this is the one that has become part of my regular rotation. Its a great, easy vegetarian dish, which I eat as my whole entrée, and my husband enjoys with a side of meat. I find it cooks up faster in my crockpot than the recipe suggests, so I advise any one making this to check cooking time the first time they make it to see how it goes with their slow cooker.
