Crock Pot Lasagna – Valentine’s Day Dinner

Next Sunday is Valentine’s Day and I was trying to come up with a recipe that both hubby and I would enjoy but didn’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. 

Having seen this recipe online, I decided to give it a try with a twist and trust me it tasted better than it looked!  Hubby wasn’t too sure about using uncooked lasagna noodles in the Crock Pot, but I assured him that they would be done without having to boil them first.
