Hey there! This weeks drop dead delicious recipe is Slow Cooker Lasagna! Slow Cooker Lasagna made healthier by using 50/50 of lean ground turkey and lean ground turkey sausage. It also has three cheeses. I repeat three cheeses! This is not a drill. Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and cottage cheese. Don’t stop reading. I promise you it’s delicious. It’s all wrapped up with lasagna noodles and a quick n’ easy marinara sauce from scratch. I’m actually chowin’ down on this reheated as I type this and oh man, this is totally one of those ‘tastes even better the next day’ type dishes. It tasted real good last night, but I think I might eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow because I am an adult and I can do what I want.

Last week, I made this for the first time, and it was just alright. But I’m a perfectionist, so I made it again this week. The first time, I think I added a bit too much water to the sauce, and it didn’t cook properly in the slow cooker, because It was just a bit too “soupy” for my lasagna preference, and the flavor was a little flat. This batch though? It’s AMAZING!

I’ve never, ever cooked lasagna in a slow cooker before last week. Actually, I’m pretty sure I’ve never cooked any kind of pasta in there. I’m usually a stove top and oven type of girl, but I’m journeying more and more into the slow cooker world. (As a lot of people journey into the Instant Pot world haha!) You want to know the number one reason why I love my slow cooker? I just love the smell that permeates throughout the house for the entire day! I also love that I have dishes done before dinner time, so I can relax with Eric and Pepper before her bedtime.

The idea for Slow Cooker Lasagna came by request from my lovely sister and some of her co-workers. They wanted a healthier crock pot lasagna! Ask and you shall receive… eventually… probably, unless it’s oysters. Go somewhere else for that. So, here you go, gals! I think you’ll love it. I know I love it. Eric went on and on about it. Pepper ate lots of it.. but I had to add extra cheese. She’s having a ‘more cheese please!’ phase. Is that actually a phase? I don’t think there’s ever enough cheese. But, she still won’t touch macaroni and cheese, try and figure that one out.

The best thing about Slow Cooker Lasagna:

  • It’s delicious.
  • It’s creamy and cheesy.
  • It’s flavorful.
  • It’s stupid easy.
  • You get a real ‘bang for your buck’ when it comes to portion size.

So here we go… Let’s get into the kitchen, folks!

Grab a medium yellow onion, and chop it up as evenly as possible. Then grab a few cloves of garlic..

Mince the garlic as finely as you can.  I actually noticed some pieces were a bit bulky, so I put it under the knife once more after this shot.

In a large stock pot and throw in half a pound of Italian Turkey Sausage (I use Jennie O Sweet Italian Links with the casing removed from the links), and half a pound of lean ground turkey. Throw a bit of kosher salt (about 1/2 teaspoon) on it while you’re at it. I use a mixture because I find the sausage taste overpowers if you only use that. It’s a personal preference, honestly. You could use all sausage or all turkey, but in my humble opinion the mixture of both is where it’s at. If using just the ground turkey, I recommend sprinkling about one teaspoon of Italian seasoning on it while browning to give it a bit more flavor.

When the meat is mostly browned, add the onions and garlic, and cook until soft.

Now add a large can of crushed tomatoes, and a can of diced tomatoes. (You can use tomato sauce in place of this, but I like the extra texture of crushed tomatoes!) Add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons dried basil, 2 teaspoons dried oregano, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and a couple shakes of red pepper flakes. Also 1 cup of WATER! Do not forget the water. It needs water to ensure the noodles cook properly in the crock pot, because we won’t be cooking the noodles beforehand.

Mix it all up, cover the pot, and simmer for about 10 minutes.

While the sauce is simmering, grab a bowl and mix up my favorite part; The cheese! Add 2 cups cottage cheese, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (reserve 1/2 cup for later), and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. I was so excited that I was able to use this much cheese while still keeping the points/calories in check. Mix it all up!

P.S.- If you’ve been reading my recipes for awhile… you know I HATE cottage cheese, but I cook with it because it is PERFECT to cook with.

Spray the crock pot with a bit of cooking spray, and then add about 1 1/2 cups of sauce at the bottom, followed by a layer of broken-up lasagna noodles.

Spread 1/3 of the cheese mixture on top of the noodles as evenly as possible.

Layer on another portion of delicious sauce, about 1 1/2 cups.. followed by some more broken up noodles! (I chose to break them up because it annoyed me too much that they didn’t fit properly)

S’more of the cheesy mixture…

Now yet another layer of sauce!

More noodles!

More cheese! I apologize for all the repetition. But remember, layering is everything here- it’s what lasagna is all about!

Top with the remaining sauce, and mozzarella cheese! Cook on low for 4-5 hours.

If you’ve been making lasagna for a while you probably know that it needs to sit 10-15 minutes after cooking so it kind of all “forms together,” ya know what I’m sayin? There must be a technical term for this process.

I feel like this also rings true with the slow cooker method. I turned the slow cooker off, and while I was making side salads and toasting bread in the oven, I just let it sit with the cover slightly turned. It was a total of 20 minutes, maybe. By all means, you can dig in right away, but it will be a bit sloppy and you want the noodles to kind of hug the sauce and cheese a bit.

My second favorite part about this is that the serving size is HUGE, which means a lot to a girl watching her weight.

A bit messy… but oh so scrumptious! Eric came home from work and said it smelled like just an Italian Eatery! He was fairly unimpressed with the one that came out of the kitchen the week before (He’s got pretty high standards these days, insert eye roll.) But alas, He couldn’t stop raving about this one, and honestly the only thing I changed was the amount of water, and I threw some salt on the meat while browning it. Voila!

*drools* I hope ya love it up!

With love from my kitchen to yours,

Star

    So easy and so delish! My husband is always requesting lasagna every now and then but loves this recipe! Now if he would just make it instead of me, that would be awesome!!! Lol

  2. 5 stars
    It’s been too long since I’ve made this one! Always a hit with my guys, and I personally think the leftovers taste even better. I will often make on a Sunday and have for dinner the next night. Such an easy and delicious recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    Super yummy! I am not a cook. I mean like really not a cook. But I hosted my sister – who is a cook- and family foe the night before Easter to have a yummy meal and die eggs and it was fabulous! Rave reviews by all!

  4. 3 stars
    This is so tasty and easy! The flavor was perfect and this recipe will go in our regular rotation!

  5. Yummy! It’s a little salty but I wonder if that’s cause I used all turkey sausage and no turkey meat. Also, if I were to bake in the oven, how long would I bake for??

  6. I have this in the crockpot today. Can’t wait to try it! One question….in the instructions it indicates to add pepper with the other spices, however, I don’t see in the ingredients how much should be added?

    Thanks!
    Love your recipes!

  7. Star, this looks absolutely delicious! I have tried many of your recipes and they are on repeat in my house. However, I am spoiled by the link you have on your other recipes so I can jump to the WW App and see what my PP’s are. Will this have one soon? Thanks!

    1. I’ll have links updated as soon as I can! I’m sorry for the delay on having them all done

  8. 5 stars
    Can’t wait to try this!! If it is like any other of your recipes, it will be a winner!!

  9. Just tried this one for the first time this week, the whole family loved it! Will make again! #top2021

  10. My family loves this lasagna and I often make it to share when a friend is need of a meal. They always ask for the recipe.

    Star, you hit it out of the park on this one. I have always wanted to love lasagna but it was always either crunchy on the edges or too runny. As Goldilocks would say, “this one was just right!” Tender (not crunchy or starchy) noodles, delicious sauce, and most importantly, WW friendly. Thanks to you and the hubby for working out the details on this one. It’s a keeper!

  12. 5 stars
    So incredibly easy and delicious!! Even better the next day for lunch, and I’m not usually excited about leftovers. YUM!! 10/10

    Hi Star, Made this tonight and substituted the tomatoes and water with your homemade crock pot marinara sauce. It was delish! My husband had three helpings and he’s Italian! Thanks again for your brilliant inspiration.

  15. This sounds great! I have a huge bowl of 0 point marinara in the freezer and plan on using that for this recipe and adding the sausage in. How many cups of the marinara do you think is equivalent, 4 or 5 maybe? And do you still recommend the same amount of water? Thanks, can’t wait to make this!

    This is my go-to lasagna!
    I will say that I have never done it in my slow cooker (I need to try it!), but do it in the oven and it comes out so great. We love it!

    This is the best lasagna, even my twins love it! I have made it numerous times when we’ve had company and everyone asks for the recipe! I have yet to find a recipe my family dislikes of yours! Thank you for everything you do!

    Making it a second time today! My husband asked me to make the recipe again after the first try 2 weeks ago. He loved it. Will be sharing with my dad today too!! Thank you for a great recipe!!

  19. 5 stars
    Wow! This was so good! My whole family (including a 3 yo and 6 yo) ate it and loved it. I used Mid’s meat sauce because I had it on hand, but will do the homemade sauce next time. I started WW again at the new year and I’m so excited to have found your website. Chicken French Dips are next on the menu!

    Made this tonight. It turned out great. Used this recipe minus the water and made in the oven at 375 for 45 mins covered, then 10 mins at 425, instead of the crockpot. One question though… how much pepper should we use? Maybe I’m just crazy and missed it in the ingredients list, but I did not see it in there even though it was in the directions so I just kind of gave it a good sprinkle.

    This lasagna was amazing! I ended up having to cook it the traditional way, but I assembled it the night before in a 9×13 dish, let it sit overnight and then cooked it for 45 minutes. I should have cooked it for an hour, but I was hungry! I didn’t add any extra water besides what was in the recipe. Thank you so much for this recipe, it was delish!

  22. Holy smokes this was SO easy and SO delicious even with gluten free noodles! And I have never even made lasagna before! Every single recipe of yours o have made have been amazing. Thank you!!!

  23. This is currently in our crockpot right now! I can’t wait to dig in tonight for supper 🙂

    Only thing I modified was adding one egg to the cottage cheese & shredded cheese mixture. It smells delicious! Thank you!

  24. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner tonight. Followed the recipe as is except I substituted chicken sweet Italian sausage because I could not find the turkey sausage anywhere. Let it sit and cool for sure before serving it. It needs to set up. I was skeptical because I love lasagna but it was very flavorful and yummy!!! My husband liked it too 🙂

  25. I am currently going to Weight Watchers and used my calculator to figure the points and it comes to 11…not 9…hmmm

    1. Hi Carolyn! If you used the nutrional information and did not input the ingredients into the WW recipe builder then the points will come out differently due to zero point ingredients. I hope that helps. Have a great day!

    We made this today and omg. My boyfriend and I were both skeptical of the cottage cheese since we both hate it, but you truly cannot taste it! And the lasagna is so good and such a reasonable amount of points for the portion!!

  27. 5 stars
    I don’t EVER comment on blogs, but I had to thank you for this recipe! It is simply amazing. I was so skeptical about making lasagna in a slow cooker and then a lightened up version at that. But my entire family (two picky kids included) agreed that this was our favorite lasagna recipe ever–non-skinnyish versions included! It was so good and such a satisfying portion that I plugged it into the ww app fully expecting that you made a mistake with the points. But, nope, it was nine! I’m so excited to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow and to add this to my list of regulars. THANK YOU!

    1. Hi Callie! Thank you for taking the time to stop, comment, and rate it really means so much to me. I’m also sooooooo happy to hear it was a crowd pleaser! =)

  28. 5 stars
    You’re honestly some kind of genius or something. I was very skeptical about the cottage cheese but I made the recipe to the tee and it was AMAZING! You have a gift at making not so healthy food, point friendly. Thanks so much for the recipe! I will be trying many other!

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you so much for those kind words! I hope you enjoy all the other recipes you try too! Let me know how it goes!

  29. Hi! Do you know if I can use the no cook noodles? I happen to have them on hand and would like to use them up

  30. 5 stars
    Made this for a potluck at church tonight-everyone raved about it!! I didn’t let them in on the fact that it was a WW friendly recipe, and they had no idea!! Definitely making this again!! Thank you for this amazing recipe!!❤️

  31. Well i.made the lasagna put it in the crockpot then read where it only cooks for 4 hours. Oops it will cook 8 hours. Will.see how it turns out

  32. Do you think I can use Penne noodles instead of the lasagna noodles? I don’t have any lasagna noodles. Thanks

    1. I think that should be fine! It’d be more like a lasagna style pasta, but still yummy! I’d just layer them as you would the lasagna noodles. You might not get as many layers, but that’s okay just stuff them full.

  33. 5 stars
    I love this recipe. Even my picky eater daughter loves it. I still haven’t told her or my husband that it has cottage cheese in it. I thought gross when I first read that but you made a believer out of me. Getting ready to dish it up right now.

  34. Yet another amazing recipe! I’ve fed my family from Thisbe website for at least two weeks now and everything has been delicious! From pickle chicken, chicken salad, tuna salad, roasted corn and onion pasta salad, this lasagna…. all so very delicious! Thank you so much for the recipes!! They are always great, family loves them and I’m doing well on my WW plan! Win! Anyway, thanks again!

  35. Has anyone tried to make this in the oven? Im worried that it will get mushy if it stays on warming mode for the 5 hours I’ll be away at work.

    1. You can definitely make it in the oven. This is very similar to how I make my regular lasagna. You’ll just need to cook the noodles according to package instructions before hand, layer it just like the directions here, cover with foil, and bake in the oven for bout 45 minutes at 350! I hope you enjoy!

  37. Has anyone tried making it in an InstantPot instead of a slow cooker? Was hoping to shorten the cooking time so I could make it on a week night.

    1. I have an electric pressure cooker…same as an InstantPot and made the recipe from the cookbook that came with it…it totally burned on the bottom. Maybe InstantPot has recipes online? I’m thinking that my recipe called for no cook lasagna…only time I ever bought them.

    Maybe I missed it, but how much black pepper? It’s listed in the directions, but not the ingredients. I kind of just guessed. It’s in the Crock Pot now and smells wonderful. Also with Freestyle the points should be a little lower, right? Thanks for the recipe!

    We made this for friends the other night and it was DELICIOUS. Both toddlers loved it too. The husbands didn’t even know it was turkey instead of red meat in there. Thank you, thank you for this yummy recipe, I will definitely be making it again and it is PERFECT for a crowd!

    This was amazing! I made it last night for the first time, and it was a big hit. My daughter doesn’t usually like anything pasta, but she loved it, especially after I told her it was healthy 😉
    My only negative was that it took a long time to prep, something I couldn’t do quickly in the morning before work, but it was great for a Sunday supper!

    1. The noodles will become too mushy if cooking for too long. If you have a slow cooker that has a programable timer. You can set it to only cook for 5 hours and then it will switch to “keep warm”

    This lasagna is AMAZING. My husband and I are obsessed. This has become our regular Monday night meal because it’s weight watchers meeting night and it’s so easy just to put it in the crockpot and have dinner ready as soon as I get home from my meeting. Thanks for making it possible to make lasagna without an insane amount of points!

    1. Monday night lasagna sounds PERFECT! So happy you and your husband enjoy this. I love this recipe too and I still can’t believe sometimes that it’s Weight Watchers friendly! haha!

    1. So so happy you enjoyed! I failed the first time I tested out this slow cooker lasagna the pasta came out as moosh, but a few adjustments and it was perfect! This has become my new favorite way to make lasagna.

  49. First of all, this was amazing! I made it tonight. And I love that you can have so much…11.5oz is a large portion. So yummy! However when I plugged in the nutrition info. I got 11SP, not 9. Can you clarify? Thanks!

    1. The nutritional info provided always includes everything in the recipe where as the points information does not because Weight Watchers does not calculate fruits and vegetables to have calories, sugars, etc sometimes when doing this the recipes won’t add up the same in nutritional info and points values. Hope that helps!

      1. That makes sense! I appreciate you clarifying. I didn’t think about that. It was so yummy! I had leftovers for lunch. My husband loves it & I even took some to my parents & didn’t tell them it was healthy. And my dad loved it and said he would’ve stayed home & ate that instead of going out to dinner had he known I was bringing him some. So easy to make, so yummy, definitely going to be a favorite in our house. I also love that you included the ounces because I like to weigh everything. So great! Thanks again!

    1. You can use all lean ground turkey. The only thing I would suggest is sprinkling about 1/2 tablespoon of italian seasoning on the meat while browning to really season it well, but you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to!

    1. You could definitely leave it out if you want to, it might not be as cheesy and creamy though. I would add some extra mozz or replace with ricotta

  51. I had plans to have company over yesterday evening, and I wanted to make something I could easily throw together in the Crock Pot so I wouldn’t have to slave over a hot oven making enough food for a small crowd. So I made this. And it was a hit! Everyone raved about it. I heard things from, “This is the best lasagna I’ve ever had” to “I’m a picky eater and I love it” to “I can’t believe this is healthy”! It was absolutely phenomenal. Another delicious DDOP recipe for the arsenal. Thanks Star!

  53. If I sub the crushed tomatoes for tomato sauce, are the ounces the same? 28 for 28? Not sure my super picky hubs will wear crushed (eye roll emoji). Thanks!!

  55. This sounds so good and i really want to try it…but do you think it would be ok to sub the cottage cheese for ricotta cheese? I really, really do not like cottage cheese 🙁

    1. I think it would be just fine if you’re a bigger fan of ricotta! double check points/calories if you’re tracking/counting calories!

    1. I am so happy the family enjoyed and that you’re able to feed everyone and yourself the same thing! It’s so much better than making two dinners.. or worse just having a sandwich or something while the family feasts!

    1. Regular lasagna noodles, not the oven-ready ones. You just break them up and put them in! Hope you enjoy

  61. So funny when I read ricotta I was like yuk I’m leaving it out but then read your comment about hating it…so I figure you can’t taste it?

    1. You absolutely cannot taste. I’ve been seeing recipes for years (not even lightened up ones) that use cottage cheese so a few years ago a gave it a whirl and I was pleasantly surprised! I’ve been using it as a “creamy” factor ever since and bonus it’s super low in points!

  63. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for adding the approx. ounces. That is very helpful for me. I prefer to weigh when possible. Had your kickin’ chicken past tonight and it was soooooo good.

    1. I’m going to try to post the ounces (when I remember) from now on. I personally really like to weigh too, however, with this one it was almost a must because you can’t cut 8 servings very easily in a crock pot! I hope you enjoy!

    2. I’ve tried to find the recipe for Kickin’ Chicken and can’t seem to locate it. Is it possibly called something else? Thank you.

    1. This was great. Only changes made was to use less salt (cut it from 2 tsp. to 1 tsp.) and still felt it was a bit too salty. Will try 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. next time. Also added fresh spinach on each of the 3 layers. Four hours was more than sufficient time to cook it. May even try less next time. I tried to rate it 5 stars, but the field was not updatable.
