This recipe is very similar to traditional lasagne, just without the need to boil the noodles. Could do the same with the oven ready lasagne noodles. With that being said, I've made this twice, and both times it took about 30 minutes to prepare and longer than four hours to cook. I cooked it the second time 3 hours on low and then an hour on high, and it was too liquidy, but good (used veggie crumbles for my vegetarian daughter - yummy). I forgot that it was on after eating (I had turned it back down to low), so what was left cooked at least another two hours, and it was perfect! I'll have to remember that MY slow cooker needs six, not four, to cook this perfectly. As another reviewer stated, it was pretty bland, but I'm not giving up on this one. I will try it again, for six hours and by adding seasoning to the meat while browning and using a better quality spaghetti sauce. Third time's a charm, right?
