Here's A Recipe: Slow Cooker Lasagne

Hey, guys!! Happy Weekend!!!

As you may have noticed this week, Life in Sam's Box is up and running again!! The posting schedule for now will be Tuesday and Thursday and the odd Saturday (like today^^). 

Soooooo, what do I have for you today? Well, a recipe, of course. Not any recipe, a SLOW COOKER recipe. Who's up for lasagne??

We don't have an oven yet at our new place, so we've decided to practice a little with the slow cooker. For our first take, I researched a few recipes for lasagne, but decided to personalize it a little. 


Pack of lasagne sheets 
1 onion
1 clove garlic
2 carrots, chopped
400g ground meat (I buy a mix of beef/pork)
400ml tomato sauce
1 Zuchinni (or other vegetable)
Cheese sauce (bought or home-made)
Cheese, grated, for topping


First of all, make the sauce. (You can also buy pasta sauce ready-made). Fry the onion in a little olive oil in a pan and add the garlic, meat and carrots. Stir every now and then until meat is brown. Add tomato and a little oregano and basil. 

In your slow cooker, pour a layer of the sauce and cover with sheets of lasagne (you may have to break them to get them to fit). Add some chopped zuchinni (or vegetable of your choosing) and cover with some cheese sauce. Add another layer of pasta, another of sauce, another of vegetable and top with a final layer of pasta, cheese sauce and grated cheese. 

Leave to cook in your slow cooker on low for about 4 hours. 

Bon apetit!!

What are you cooking today??
