Slow Cooker Lasagna

Another recipe from my current favorite cookbook.


1 lb. ground beef

2 29 oz cans tomato sauce

8 oz package of lasagna noodles, uncooked

4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 1/2 cups cottage cheese


1. Spray interior of the cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Brown the beef.

3. Stir in tomato sauce. Mix well.

4. Spread 1/4 of the meat sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker.

5. Arrange 1/3 of the uncooked noodles over the sauce. (You may need to break them up so they fit nicely).

6. Combine the cheeses in a bowl. Spoon 1/3 of the cheeses over the noodles.

7. Repeat the layers twice.

8. Top with remaining sauce.

9. Cover and cook on low 4 hours.

Makes 6-8 servings

Ideal slow cooker size: 6 quart

I also added onion to my hamburg. Next time I'll also add some Italian seasoning and add a sprinkle of cheese to the top about a 1/2 hour before it's done cooking. For a healthier option, consider using ground turkey. I also used reduced fat mozz and fat free cottage cheese.
