Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Crock Pot

This lasagna was pretty good, nothing spectacular. I originally found the recipe on Pinterest. I googled this recipe so I could just cut and paste it here, and I found another version that got great reviews. Here is Stephanie O'Dea's recipe, you've probably heard of her, she is the blogger A Year of Slow Cooking.

 -3 boneless chicken breasts (cooked and chopped – I chopped my very fine)
 - 1 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
 - 828ml of pasta sauce
 - Uncooked lasagna noodles
 - Tub of Ricotta Cheese
 - 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
 - 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
 - 1/4 cup of water

 Optional Ingredients:
 - add in 2 sweet bell peppers (not a fan of those in our house so we skipped it)
 - We used more cheese than we required to
 - In a bowl combine the chicken, buffalo sauce & pasta sauce – this will be called the sauce from here on
 - Spray your 5 qt slow cooker with non stick spray
 - Ladle a large spoonful of your sauce to cover the bottom of the crock pot
 - Add a layer of noodles – you will need to break them up. We like lots of noodles so we doubled up on this step
 - Spread a layer of ricotta cheese across the noodles
 - Add bell peppers
 - Top with cheese
 - Repeat the layers until you run out of ingredients.
 - On the final layer top with sauce and cheese
 - Pour 1/4 cup of water over your lasagna
 - Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or on high for 2.5 to 3 hours.
