Ya know, one of the most fun aspects about having a blog is the opportunity to meet and get to know other bloggers. One of the neatest people that I have met from blogging is Jeni from Bakerette.com! She has an amazing blog that you seriously need to check out. Her recipes are scrumdiddlyumptious and her photos make you salivate just looking at them.
One of her recipes that I have pinned is her Supreme Pizza Lasagne in a Crockpot. Last week while taking care of my daughter after having her second child, I needed to make a dinner that hopefully everyone loved but didn’t take a lot of time. I mean, who can spend a lot of time making a meal when you have a two year old to chase around? I hoped that this recipe would fit the bill.
The test of this pin came after dinner when someone in our house asked for seconds. Who was it, you ask? My two year old grandson! HE LOVED IT! We also had this lasagne the next day as lunch leftovers and my son-in-law said he thought it tasted just as good or better the next day. WOW! Two great testimonials. Thanks Jeni!
This Pin definitely Rocks!
Supreme Pizza Lasagne in a Crockpot
- 12 lasagna noodles uncooked
