Crock-pot Turkey Lasagna

My favorite way to cook is using the crock-pot it allows you to have dinner when your ready not at a set time. I was a little worried when I tried out this recipe putting the lasagna noodles in there not cooked, but no need to worry, they turn out perfect! This recipe is delicious, I ate it for lunch and dinner for several days and never got tired of it. Also I didn’t have red wine so I substituted chicken broth.
