I have a large family which means I have a lot of crock pots too. I probably use a crock pot 3-4 nights a week so I wanted to make sure that I had one that consistently cooked meals perfectly and was reliable.
Out of all the slow cookers that I currently own (that’s 3 if you’re counting), I really love my Ninja cooker. My favorite feature about this crock pot is that it has a cooktop feature which allows you to also brown meat in the same crock pot for recipes that require that.
It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean and it’s easy to clean as the removable insert has a non stick quality. Trust me, you won’t regret purchasing this ninja crock pot!
I also really like this crockpot. It has a lock on the lid so it’s the one I use when traveling with food.

How do you make crock pot lasagna?
Now that you have the crock pot and all the ingredients, let’s get started on how to create this great lazy day lasagna recipe.
First, in a large skillet brown the beef. You’ll want to brown the beef completely and drain off the remaining fat in the skillet.
Next, in the same skillet (we don’t want tons of dishes 🙂 ), stir in the crushed tomatoes and seasonings until thoroughly combined with the cooked beef.
Then in your favorite crock pot cover the bottom with some of this delicious meat sauce you just created.
Next place a layer of ravioli across the bottom of the slow cooker on top of the pasta sauce. Then cover these raviolis with a layer of the mozzarella cheese.
Continue this same process until all the meat sauce and ravioli are used. It’s ok to use the frozen ravioli. You do not have to thaw them prior to making this recipe.
Ensure that a layer of the meat sauce is on top.
Finally top with one last layer of the mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese (optional).
Then in your 6 or 8 quart crock pot cover and cook on low in the slow cooker for 4 hours.
Once it’s done cooking, turn off your crock pot and let the meal sit for about 15 minutes before you cut and serve this delicious lazy day lasagna recipe!
