Crockpot Lasagna and Chocolate Zuchinni Bread

i'm playing single parent again this weekend, but this time not just pam is with me, but the youngest pascale is in the mix too. having them with me gives me reason to play in the kitchen. they love my lasagna so i knew i had to make that for them. this time tho, i decided to throw it in the crock pot. i did a quick search to see if it were even possible. it is. but i didn't follow a recipe. i followed the basic lasagna steps: pasta, sauce, cheese layer, repeat. i used ground turkey. i did all the prep work last night, assembled it in the crock pot and in the morning, before heading out to work, set it to low. voila.

i bought some gorgeous zucchini at the farmer's market so i decided to make use out of them. whilst perusing Make a Joyful Table, i came across a Chocolate Zucchini Bread recipe. i didn't like the ingredients so i did a search. i found a better recipe at What Geeks Eat. i made a slave out of pam, she had to shred the zucchini. i also used white chocolate chips instead, because that's what i had handy.

both sisters and jab had seconds of lasagna and so far, pammie is working on her 3rd piece of the bread. sweet.

  1. Hey, I made shell-zagna the other night. That's what we named it anyway... shell pasta with sausage/beef tomato sauce and lots of ricotta. I thought about taking a pic, but it looked so gross. It was glorious... the family snarfed it.

    Didn't know you could crock pot lasagna. It held up pretty well. Ooh, and I like your picto browser thingy. My fave is the last picture... slices of bread and zukes in the background.

    i had no idea lasagna could be made in the crock pot either but apparently, there're plenty of random things that can be made.
    i'm glad you like the picto-browser, i can't tell you how thrilled i was to finally figure out how to use it properly! :)

  3. I love my crock-pot but every time I try pasta in it, it gets mushy and gross. Any clue?
