When I hear the most frequent dinnertime complaints weelicious moms' have, one of their biggest issues is lack of time.
I totally get it. It's tough trying to get a balanced, nutritious meal on the dinner table when you only have a limited amount of time in which to make it.
That is why whenever I need an easy-to-prepare meal I can be sure the whole family will love, I get out my crock pot. From prep to clean up, it is the biggest time saving appliance I own. I'd actually marry it if my husband wasn't already in the picture.
This Veggie Lasagna is one of my biggest recent crock pot success stories and it only took me a few minutes to put the whole thing together. No sautéing or stove-watching required. Just chop your veggies, mix the cheeses and layer everything into the pot.
By the time you get home from picking up the kids at school and an afternoon of errands, this delicious dinner will be waiting for you — just take the lid off and serve.
You may not want to marry your crock pot, but you might consider it after tasting this lasagna.
