I have been asked to come back as a Brand Ambassador for Catelli for 2017, and I’m thrilled. Catelli is our family’s go-to pasta. One of my favorites in their pasta line-up is Catelli Gluten Free. This pasta is made with a blend of white rice, brown rice, corn, and quinoa. It tastes just like white pasta, so no one will know the difference, and it’s perfect to welcome everyone to the dinner table to reunite after a long day for a comforting meal.

I chose to make the Crockpot Lasagne when I knew our schedule was full. I love my crockpot because it does most of the work for me, and I can simply add my ingredients and walk away.

As my son gets older, our lives are becoming busier and busier. He now has school, play dates, hockey, and (soon) T-Ball. I run a business, so I’m usually working on recipes, eBooks, the Click Start Club eCourse, or shooting photos. Weekends are no longer our time to hang out and do nothing (well, not every weekend) and I’m finding our family is dividing and going into different directions more often than what I would like.

Before my son was born, I knew I wanted dinner time to be our family’s time to reunite. Our dining room may be our staging room for our kitchen renovation, but we keep half the table clear (this is real life friends!) so we can sit down to talk about the highlights of our day. My tagline for The Bewitchin’ Kitchen is lives are brought together at the kitchen table after all

On this particular day, I prepped the vegetable loaded meat sauce in the morning. I had two ulterior motives with this sauce:

  1. Clean out my fridge with vegetables that didn’t have more than a few days left.
  2. Trick my son into eating a ton of vegetables that he wouldn’t have touched otherwise.

Then I layered the lasagne ingredients in my Crockpot (super helpful tip: use a crockpot liner, these bad boys make cleanup a breeze).

Then it cooked!

During the day, I was shooting recipes for my vinaigrette eBook, my husband and my son took off to hockey and a day of swimming, and we reunited at dinnertime to share our favourite moments.

Let’s keep it real here, Crockpot meals are not always the prettiest. They usually fall apart on the plate. Since this dish cooked all afternoon, the Catelli Gluten Free noodles soaked up the majority of the sauce and it kept its shape fairly well.

  2. This sounds delicious!

  3. This healthy crockpot lasagna looks delicious and easy.I can’t wait to try it!

  4. did you mean low for 5-6 hours and high for 3-4? thank 

  5. We need comments after you make it please 🙂 I’ll give it a try and report  back asap.

  6. How did you prep the Italian sausage and the noodles?

    • Thanks for catching that! Cook the sausage with the beef (if you buy it in casings, squeeze the meet out). Add the noodles raw. They’ll cook with the lasagne.

    • I should add that the noodles will soak up a lot of the sauce 🙂 So if you want more, add more tomato sauce. I used Catelli GF noodles and they worked great.


  7. My family loved this. Both of my boys ages 6 and 2 indulged crazily over this. I can’t get my 6 year old to eat much but he ate 2 servings. Thanks for the recipe.
