Recipe Tips

  • Miss the béchamel? My best suggestion would be to buy it from the supermarket or make it from scratch.
  • Feel free to use a different combination of cheese in this recipe. For me, Mozzarella and parmesan worked great. However, you can experiment using cheddar or ricotta cheese instead
  • This lazy day lasagna is also perfect for reheating. Cook it, and it will last in your fridge for a few days and retain the awesome flavors.
  • You can easily swap the ground beef for some shredded chicken.
  • For the easiest meal, I use a jar of pasta sauce such as marinara sauce. You can easily make this sauce in the slow cooker if plenty of time on your hands.
  • You can use fresh or frozen spinach. I find frozen spinach tends to be a lot easier as it does not need to be sautéed.
  • If you decide to use dry lasagna sheets, then I recommend that you par-cook them first.
