This is the best lasagna ever and my family’s favorite meal….and its made in your crockpot! It’s made with lean ground turkey….but I promise you can’t tell.  It’s  easy and full of flavor, you don’t even need to boil the noodles!!! I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of variations of this dish but I promise mine is not complicated and even the pickiest eaters will love it. Once you try it you will never make it in the oven again.  Try it and this will surely become your favorite slow cooker lasagna.
