Crockpot Lasagna

I found  this recipe over at The WW Chick  and thought I would give it a try.  I have wanted to try a lasagna in the Crockpot for some time but was afraid it would just turn into Lasagna soup.
No soup here, it stayed intact.  It was a little juicier than what I normally like my lasagna to be but all in all it was tasty, figure friendly and easy!!
As I do with every recipe, I made some changes / additions.
  • Used whole wheat regular lasagna noodles.
  • Half a package of frozen spinach
  • Grated 2 large carrots into the meat mixture
  • Used half  lean ground chicken and half extra lean ground beef
  • Added 1 spicy Italian Turkey Sausage
I would have added more spice to it but the hubs doesn’t like spicy food :o(
Served up with a large salad for supper.

During my 650th    I mean 6th trip to the grocery I picked up some Sea Salt and Vinegar Baked Kettle Chips.  I adore chips especially salt and vinegar.  I have yet to find a semi healthy version that actually tastes like a potato chip.  These came very close.  Nice and crunchy with tons of flavor, they beat Baked Lays hands down!!
The other flavors are:  Salt and Pepper, White Cheddar, BBQ, and Lightly Salted.
As always the weekend flew by and it’s back to work tomorrow..BOO!!

I'm with you on baked chips, but the Baked Kettle Chips are really good. Husband & I both like them. :)
