IMG_8967I’m not sure why using tikka masala sauce in a lasagna sounded like a good idea. I’m not even sure how the idea hit me; I was, after all, sober. Regardless, baking the crock pot lasagna I had planned with an Indian twist seemed like a good idea at the time.

You can judge it for yourself. This being my first test run, I kept the tikka masala part pretty simple: 30 oz of Trader Joe’s sauce subbed in for marinara. Baking it in the crockpot worked pretty well, also.
