Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna is a family favorite and so quick and easy to make! A delicious meat sauce layered with cheese and spinach filled ravioli and loads of gooey cheese and cooks up perfectly in the slow cooker. A meal that everyone will agree on. Did I mention how easy this lasagna is to make?

Delicious Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna

Easy Easy Easy

This Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna is a family favorite!  It seems we’re always off at some activity or event and some nights it seems like everyone is going through a revolving door.  This is perfect because it’s quick to make and we can have it ready for when we get home from soccer practice.

We love lasagna and although there are a lot of steps involved in making a lasagna from scratch, the results are always worth it!  This Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna uses a few shortcuts to make a lasagna dish that takes just about 15 minutes of prep and then cooks in the slow cooker but has the same great flavor.

Saucy Lasagna In Your Slow Cooker

The key to making this taste amazing is to use a high quality pasta sauce, the better the sauce, the better the dish!

Cheese and spinach filled ravioli (or you can use just cheese ravioli) replace the traditional layers of pasta and ricotta cheese making it super simple to put together and no boiling required. Adding the cheese on top right at the beginning of the the cooking allows it to get that yummy crusty edge that I love!

This recipe makes a large batch and I would suggest a 6 quart slow cooker or larger.

    1. I’ve never tried it Ann. If it works for other recipes, I would think it could work. Let us know if you try it!

  1. My crockpot settings are high 4 hrs and 6hrs then low 8hr and 10hr

    Which one should I choose?

    1. This recipe should cook on low for 3-4 hours, so you should select the low temperature and stop it when you reach 3-4 hours and it is cooked.

  2. This is an amazingly delicious and simple meal!  Thank you for sharing it with
    us!  I couldn’t find Ravioli with spinach and cheese so just used cheese stuffed
    Ravioli and ti was delicious!  I hope by pushing the 5th dot below that it means
    a 5 star recipe because the button system below didn’t make sense!  This is a
    5 Star Recipe!5 stars

  3. Hi! I was wondering if you have tried it with chicken instead of beef and alfredo sauce instead of spaghetti sauce? My son in law has trouble w/ anything tomato as his mouth is sensitive to acidic foods like tomato so I’m always trying to find different ways to cook our everyday favorites. This recipe sounds amazing! Look forward to hearing back from you.

    1. Hi Kristen, I have only tried the recipe as written. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  4. My daughter and I both got the ingredients to make this.  I decided not to do the recipe since frankly, I have never liked moc lasagna recipes because the texture is just not the same and I feel you just get a lot of heavy fat/carb without the enjoyment of the structure of traditional lasagna. But after tasting hers, I was impressed.  She used Italian sausage instead of beef (which was less work since no other seasoning or the onion was needed) and used frozen raviolis.  At the 4 hour mark it was perfect.  The frozen ravioli was very reminiscent of lasagna noodles, and the flavors were spot on.  I couldn’t believe it.  So simple, I’m definitely making this!5 stars

  5. I have a question and what kind of uncooked ravioli? Frozen or the kind next to the pasta in the grocery in the fridge? I bought frozen since it had to cook for 3 hours I want to know for sure for future reference

  6. Made this for a weekend dinner. I like recipes that make a lot of leftovers that we can eat all week- or the husband can take to can take to work, etc. This was great! The only modification I made was to add fresh spinach and mushrooms to the mixture. They cooked perfectly as the lasagna cooked in the crockpot. Yummy. 5 stars

  7. I made this last week and it is the best tasting lasagna ever. Loved it and it was so easy to make!!!!!
    Of course will be making again.5 stars

  8. This is the best recipe. I’ve shared it many times already. I use the frozen Louisa Spinach and cheese raviola. It’s the best!!5 stars

  9. About how many does this feed? Approximately how many servings? I usually cook for about 20 plates once a week using 2 crockpots, need to guestimate…? Any suggestions?

  10. Bachelor here with a 4 qt crockpot. Will this recipe work as is for my cooker or should I adjust for the smaller size. Thanks in advance…

    1. To be safe, I would adjust to a smaller size, or prepare to freeze half of the recipe for an easy crock pot meal in the future.

  11. What an awesome, delicious, and easy to make recipe! I make it at least twice a month, and every time get compliments from my family. :-)

  12. Bless you for sharing such an AWESOME recipe. I love Lasagna 
    but don’t make it. This was DELISH‼️I didn’t have any hamburger 
    and made it without and it was so good. I will definitely be making
    Lasagna from now on‼️ It will be so comforting on our cold snowy
    days in Canada.
