Dear Moms & Dads,

You can make meals that the family will eat and get in extra nutrients. Yes, you can!

My son hates mushrooms and um, like most, when something green is spotted, the panic sets in however, I sat my son at the kitchen island and said ‘Mister, we are going to make one of your favorite meals but there will be mushrooms & kale in it.’

He said ‘Mom, am I going to like it cause I don’t like mushrooms but I do like lasagna?!’.

I said ‘If you help make it I know it will taste great.’

We had a fun time and we decided to make it an adventure for Mommy by using a slow-cooker to cook and some cottage cheese in my Lasagna for the first time ever….but not the last. I am a new convert!!!

Have you ever tried making Lasagna in a slow-cooker?

Made this tonight (subbed out kale for spinach) and it was amazing! I am already looking forward to lunch tomorrow.

Excellent lasagna!! And in the crockpot … who knew?:) Had to add ground beef for my meat-loving husband, but I would totally love it without. Nice addition of healthy kale. Thank you for this great recipe. It’s a keeper!!
