Crockpot Lasagna & Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Rolls

  Some nights you just need ITALIAN food, the good stuff, not just Spaghetti!!!!  Lasagna is a lot of work, especially our family favorite: Cream Cheese Swiss Spinach Lasagna!  It’s ABSOLUTELY amazing!  (The picture is SO ugly.)  I need to make it again sometime, so I can re-photograph it….that recipe photo is from WAY back before I learned to take my food OUTSIDE!  :)

  I didn’t have time to make our family favorite, we were going to be on the run until right before supper!  This Crock pot version is fast and uses simple ingredients!  And, it tastes like you worked WAAAY harder than you did!!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Hamburger, Seasoned With Your Favorite Italian Spices
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt And Pepper
  • 3 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 box (9 Oz) No-boil Lasagna Noodles
  • 8 ounces, fluid Tomato Sauce
  • 28 ounces, fluid Of Your Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
  • 16 ounces, fluid Alfredo Sauce
  • 1 cup Shredded Italian Blend Cheese

  In a large skillet, brown hamburger with Italian seasonings of your choice, plus garlic powder, salt and pepper. Drain and leave in pan on stove.

  Pour 1/3 of the spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a greased crock pot. Mix the remainder of the spaghetti sauce, plus the entire can of tomato sauce in with your browned hamburger. Stir well.

  Place 1/3 of the noodles, breaking as necessary, to cover entire sauce layer. {Noodles will overlap and stack.} Pour 1/3 of the jar of Alfredo sauce on top of noodles. Next, sprinkle 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. Spread 1/3 of hamburger mixture on top.

  Layer noodles, Alfredo, mozzarella, hamburger mixture 2 more times. Top with 1 cup Italian blend cheese.

Cook on low for 3 1/2 hours. This WILL burn after 4, so watch closely!

Serve with a tossed salad and Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Rolls.  (Coming up next!)

  Sooo, I may or may not have started the oven on fire while baking this rolls. 

  Apparently, you need to put the Spring form pan on to a baking sheet so the butter doesn’t drip down. 

Just a word to the wise, ok?  Use a baking sheet.

  Anyhow, bet you can’t tell from this photo, that the oven was on fire!  These rolls baked perfectly, and were to die for good. 

  I am oh-so proud to tell you, that I stood at my freezer surveying my options, and made the recipe up myself, based on a sweet monkey bread recipe I make sometimes for breakfast! 

Just look at that Cheesy goodness!

Just a little?  :)

Yup, thought so!

  Say Hello to a little bit of Ooey Gooey Cheesy Heaven!

  1. I am so making BOTH of these recipes. My hubs hates when I use the crock pot but I think this might turn him. LOL. As for a fire that may or may not have happened – I may or may not have been there and done that! Glad it all worked out in the end with some MAJOR delicious looking rolls. Thank you, as always, for sharing your REAL stories. Hugs!!

  2. I was trying to figure out what in the world to make for supper until I saw these recipes. I made them both & they were a HUGE hit! I’m not a fan of goat cheese so I left that off, but the rolls are absolutely amazing! They practically evaporated! I have strict orders that I have to make them againl. SOON! P,S.~ I did take your advice to bake them on a sheet pan. ;)

  3. I made this for dinner tonight, & it was absolutely fantastic. The only change i made was i mixed sausage with the ground beef. Thanks for posting this recipe.

  4. There was a crockpot recipe on here somewhere for a shredded beef that used cranberry juice….it look good, I bought the juice and the roast and now I can’t find the recipe…..does it ring a bell with you or anyone reading your blog? It looked so yummy.

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
