This easy to make Slow Cooker Vegetable Lasagne is a lighter and low calorie version, as it only contains some fat free cottage cheese on the top layer. It also contains baked beans and LOTS of healthy vegetables
In all the years that I have owned a slow cooker, I have never made a lasagne in one. I guess I have not understood the point in having to pre cook the meat part before adding to the slow cooker and layering with the pasta and white sauce, you can pop it in an oven and cook it quicker.
This is my recipe for slow cooker roast beef . It is a meal that I have been cooking for many years now. It is the easiest way to ensure meat that is tender and tasty. As the beef cooks it creates its own gravy which contains all the juices from the meat. Please try it, because you will not be disappointed!
I appreciate that a joint of beef doesn’t take long to cook the conventional way in an oven. However, I like the fact that I can leave it cooking all day if I want to, while I am doing other things. I often put my beef in my slow cooker before breakfast on a Sunday morning for Sunday lunch. This means that I have a few hours, maybe all day, to enjoy time with my family. Allowing us to go out for a walk to work up an appetite, or to visit friends or family, before I need to return to the kitchen and get the vegetables cooked, and the slow cooker roast beef dished up.
