 Pour your favorite Barilla® Pasta Sauce on the bottom of the crock pot so there is a nice layer, not to thick but fully covered

Layer your Barilla® Lasagne sheets over the Barilla® Pasta Sauce. Mine end up looking like abstract art but I really like to add in as much Barilla® Lasagne pasta as I possibly can.

Crock Pot Spinach Lasagna Ricotta Cheese Combine your Italian herbs with your ricotta cheese. I like my lasagna super flavorful so I add in a bunch of herbs.

Hello Yum! This Crock Pot Spinach Lasagna is sooooooo good!

The combination of the Barilla® Pasta Sauce having ah-mazing flavor, the spinach and oh the cheese makes each bite a wonderful blissful experience.

I love that I can serve over a half a pound of spinach and no one thinks anything of it. They just ask for seconds and can’t wait for leftovers

A couple of tips

- I use 2 different types of Barilla® Sauce. I use Marinara for the base sauce and then the final layer I use the Roasted Garlic Barilla Pasta Sauce. I love the combination of the two flavors as you bite into the lasagna

-The spinach will wilt down and shrink as the crock pot lasagna cooks. Don’t worry if it looks like you have a gigantic lasagna that is filling your crock pot. After 3 hours it has cooked down into perfect yummy layers

-You do not need to pre-cook the Barilla® Lasagne sheets before placing them in the crock pot. Just place them in as they come out of the box and they will get soft as the lasagna cooks.

-Don’t forget Barilla® has a fantastic $1 off the purchase of ONE (1) box of Barilla® Lasagne and ONE (1) Barilla® Sauce deal at Safeway right now!

    This looks amazing! I have it cooking in my crockpot right now. I waited late to start it so I’m going to switch it to high after an hour. Do you think it will cook just as good on high for less time? Thanks!
