Servings 6 people


  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes (400g)
  • 1 packet tomato soup mix(45g)
  • 500 g Prime Beef Mince
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dried basil and oregano
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp instant beef stock
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 250 g about 3-4 cups small lasagne shapes or long lasagne strips


  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup milk sour cream, or a mixture
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • paprika optional


  • Turn your crock pot or slowcooker on to HIGH to preheat and coat the bowl with non-stick oil spray.
  • Put the garlic and tomatoes (with any juice) into a food processor or large bowl and process or mash with a fork to break up the tomatoes. Add the soup mix, minced beef, tomato paste, herbs, stock and water, then process or mix until well combined.
  • Spread one third of the meat mixture evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker bowl. Place half the lasagne pasta over the meat. Repeat the layering with another 1/3 of the meat mixture, the remaining pasta then cover with the remaining meat mixture. (You may like to keep a bit more than a third of the meat mixture for the top layer.)
  • To make the topping, mix together the cornflour, egg, milk (and/or sour cream) and cheese. Pour this over everything in the slow cooker and sprinkle with paprika (if using).
  • Turn your crockpot or slow cooker back to LOW and cook for 8-9 hours.
  • Serve with a green salad or cooked vegetables and garlic bread.


This crockpot lasagne recipe is cooked in a 4.5 litre oval slow cooker, which ends up about 4-5cm deep.
