Slow – cooker Lasagne, whats not to love eh….
This recipe is from Jessica who is a moderator in our Homecooks Ireland Facebook group.
She’s an amazing cook and a real trailblazer for home cooking with her wholesome delicious creations.
Jessica is in her last trimester of pregnancy and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, shes the perfect example of following the diet and still eating an amazing array of tasty homecooked food.
Gestational diabetes develops in women during the later stages of pregnancy.
its because the mother’s body is not able to produce enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that enables the body to break down sugar (glucose) to be used as energy. Without sufficient insulin, the amount of sugar in the blood rises. You can find out more about the GD Diet here
Yesterday She shared her recipe for slow cooker lasagne and my god the group went nuts for it, so I thought It would be a great one to share with the community here too.

- 1 pepper finely chopped
- 1/2 punnet mushrooms

- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 heaped tablespoon of plain flour
- 400 MLS of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic granules and mustard powder
Cook both sauces as you would with traditional lasagne
then layered it up in the slow cooker with 2 layers of dried pasta sheets
sprinkled grated cheddar cheese on top
Put a tea towel under the lid and put it on low for 4.5 hours
after 4.5 hours turn off your slow cooker and leave it sitting in there for about 30 minutes before cutting it.
and that’s it,
I think this one would be perfect for communions or christenings when the oven is full!
