Lasagna in the crock pot sounds just great! I’ll have to try it. Maybe even TODAY. This is making me hungry for lasagna. 🙂

I’ve recently been making Emerile’s lasagna. It’s also a recipe which you don’t need to boil the pasta before putting it in the oven and it is INCREDIBLE! It instantly became a family favorite. You can find it in his “There’s a Chef In My Family” cookbook.


I was reading the recipe and I was so hoping you included a photo~I am a visual-lol…and you did! This looks delicious! I might leave out the spinach but other than that-yummy! Thanks for sharing two recipes with us this week! You Rock!
