Do you call it a crock pot or a slow cooker? Wikipedia, the web's seemingly final word on everything, calls it a slow cooker. However in Kentucky, where I grew up, it's most definitely called a crock pot, so that's how I still refer to mine. If you don't own one, I highly recommend you making the investment as it's a life saver for anyone who needs to cook but who also works or has a busy schedule. Wait a minute, isn't that all parents and caregivers?!
I've been making Veggie Lasagna and gluten-free Mexican Tortilla Lasagna in my crock pot for years, but since both of my kids have been liking ground meat, turkey and chicken lately, I've been making this healthy version using meat to rave reviews from my crew. After all, what's more fun than twelve layers of pasta, cheese, and luscious sauce? Chloe said it looked like a tower the first time I put it on her plate, while Kenya (in total boy fashion) yelled "timber!" as he pushed his right over.
Other than the ease with which you can make it, the best part about this recipe is that it makes enough to feed a crowd if you want to serve it at a party. I make it in my crock pot, put the lid back on (after everyone taken their share) and when it's cooled I pop the crock pot insert into the fridge to reheat any remaining servings over the next few days, so there's minimum clean up to boot!
So crock pot...slow cooker...no matter what you call it, you'll definitely be calling this easy and delectable dish a winner after eating it with your family!
