For Friday Favorites we feature past recipes you might have missed and Slow Cooker Pesto Mushroom Lasagna from 365 Days of Slow Cooking sounds like a tasty way to welcome the arrival of fall!) And it’s the time of year to be making homemade pesto; I look forward to doing that every fall. Then I store the pesto in my freezer and think of creative ways to use it, and I love the sound of this easy Slow Cooker Pesto Mushroom Lasagna from my friend Karen. Lasagna really is the perfect dish to make in this new crock-pot that’s shaped like a casserole dish, but of course you can make this in any large 6-Quart Slow Cooker or a Ninja Cooker.
One great thing about making lasagna in the slow cooker is that you can start dinner mid-afternoon and have a delicious casserole about 3 hours later, with no need to watch the oven. And if you’re using theCrock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker you can put the dish in the oven right before dinner if you want to brown the top. Lasagna is always great for cold-weather comfort food, but this tasty lasagna with pesto sounds easier than most!
