But just last month, I hardly make these anymore. I focused on experimenting with new recipes that crock pot lasagna was just put to the side.

Crock pot lasagna can be served at any chosen time and your kids will still adore this pasta recipe. It’s like their favorite Mac and cheese recipe, only, it involves more sauce. But a word of advice: serve your dishes in moderation because even if it’s their favorite, it does not guarantee the same amount of craving if it’s served twice in a row. I learned this part the hard way, believe me! Well foodies, until next time. Happy cooking y’all! <3
