Crock pot lasanga

This is a truly creamy, cheesy lasagna.  Prepare in 10 mins, assemble in your crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours.

Crock pot lasagna

Prep time:  10 mins | Cook time:  4 hours | Serves: 4


500 g beef mince

1 white onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 500g jar Dolmio tomato-based pasta sauce of your choice

1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives

1 490g jar Dolmio bechamel sauce

1 cup shredded tasty cheese

6 lasagne noodles


Brown beef and onion in oil, stirring to break up meat.

Stir in pasta sauce and Kalamata olives.

Layer 1/3 meat mixture over bottom of crock pot.

Top with layer of lasagna noodles (break noodles to fit the crock pot shape as closely as you can).

Spread over 1/3 of bechamel sauce and sprinkle 1/3 cheese over.

Repeat and top with remaining meat sauce, bechamel sauce and cheese.

Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours on low.

Don’t cook on high.  It will burn and dry out the lasagna.


I have no professional or financial relationship with Dolmio.  I just like their products.  Substitute with home made sauces or another brand if preferred.
