Spinach, crab, mushrooms, and lasagna are my hubby's favorite foods. Combine in the slow cooker and wow. I about shocked myself at how good this turned out! You can substitute real crab or shrimp for mock crab. If you turn off the slow cooker and allow lasagna to cool after the 30 minutes after adding mozzarella cheese, it will stick together better!

I cooked this for dinner tonight. I changed the recipe to my liking and it turned out wonderful! I do not like imitation crabmeat at all.. does not taste anything like blue crab! It is a bit more expensive but I used real blue crab meat (claw meat). I used the oven ready noodles and had no problems. I also mixed two small cans of cream of mushroom soup into the Alfredo sauce to add more mushroom flavor. I did not use cottage cheese since my husband is not a fan of that. I also used mozzarella cheese on each layer on top of the ricotta cheese. He loves it! This recipe is excellent on a cold night and for anyone who enjoys eating blue crab!! Read More

I tried this recipe subbing Johnsonville mild Italian sausage cooked and drained. I followed the recipe but used a 5oz container of spinach. This really requires a larger style crock pot. I used a crock pot liner in my medium crock pot and had to move the liner to the larger one. Another issue was I felt it really needed extra sauce. Also upon reading the reviews I was unsure about the noodles to use dry pre-cook or use oven ready ones. I chose the oven ready type and found the texture chewy all the way through. I would use regular boiled noodles. I was not sure how to fix the noodle issue. 2 pieces were eaten and the rest could not be salvaged. This recipe may work if the right noodles are used. Read More

I made this tonight and it was really good. I didn't precook the noodles but i did buy oven ready noodles. I dont know if that made a difference but they came out perfectly. I added 1 8oz jar of lump crab meat. Also i cooked mine for 2 hrs and 15 minutes well because i misread the cooking time. It still came out great. I put everything together at the same time. I didn't wait to add the cheese and it still was good. I waited for 45 minutes for it to cool instead of 30 minutes then i ate it. It was really really good. I seasoned the crab meat prior to cooking and i chopped the mushrooms up into small pieces to make sure they cooked like someone suggested. Read More

Just made it today for the family. My husband and I loved it. I had to adjust the amount of some ingredients though. I used only 8 oz of lasagna noodles but 16 oz of crabmeat. Also next time I'd chop mushrooms smaller sliced mushrooms didn't have time to finish cooking. I don't mind mushrooms crunchy or chewy but for guests I would cut them up smaller. Overall it was very tasty and light. Read More

I made this for dinner tonight and it's amazing. I stuck pretty close to the recipe, with a couple changes. I wasn't sure if I was to cook the noodles or not as it wasn't stated, so I cooked them just enough to be pliable. I used sliced baby Bella's (8 oz package) and then diced the slices per a previous review suggestion. I also used a full container of ricotta and a full container of cottage cheese, mixed them together and spread them that way. I sprinkled some garlic powder and salt as I was worried it may be a little bland....it was AWESOME!!! Very very good and definitely will make this again. Note that it s hard to get out of the crockpot, as it becomes juicy, but definitely worth it. Read More

Excellent recipe! I did not precook the noodles and they came out perfectly. I also added cocktail shrimp and garlic salt for a little more flavor. Small scallops would be a nice addition too. Or stick to the original recipe it's a good one! Read More

I always like to read through reviews before making a recipe so based on other reviews. I bought oven ready noodles chopped the mushrooms smaller and added onion garlic based on my families preference. There was prep involved I mixed my ricotta and cottage cheese together and layered it with ease and added cheese into the layers. I did wait to add the cheese til the end and I am glad I did the cheese browned which was surprising. Will make again the family enjoyed it. Maybe an addition of red pepper flakes next time!

I was really impressed by the end result and ease of putting this together. All that was used was a cutting board and my crockpot. The lasagna noodles cooked through however the bottom layer was a little tough. The overall flavor was really good. My husband and son liked it and said it would be over the top if I add a few minced cloves of garlic next time around. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you for sharing. Read More

I made as the recipe instructed using dry uncooked noodles straight from the box. The only alteration I made was to add a small amount of water to the top of each noodle layer. Cooked up well with a very nice texture to the pasta. Read More
