Slow-Cooker Lasagna - from Kraft

This is what's on the menu for today! :) Hopefully it's good! (I'll update this and let you know) Don't miss out on the Kraft Kitchen Tips at the end... especially the 2nd one, they make me laugh!

UPDATE: This is a super delicious recipe! It's quick and easy to put together, and the flavor is really good. It's not bland at all, and is a good mix of meat and cheese and pasta. It was a big hit with us tonight. For our little family of four, we ate about half of it and put the rest in the freezer for another day. I was really impressed with this recipe! :)
