Lasagna in the Pot!

This recipe just came to me from my brother Mike's wife, Nicole!

I am SO going to try this...Crock pot recipes are right up at the top for me!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Crock Pot Lasagna Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
29 oz tomato sauce (I use less if I'm using fresh tomatoes as part of my sauce)
1 C water
6 oz tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
4 C mozzarella (I usually do a combination of mozzarella and cheddar to equal the 4 cups)
1/2 C parmesan (I use this if I have it on hand)
1 1/2 C cottage cheese (could use ricotta if desired)
Lasagna noodles (Dry, not boiled)

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef, onion, and minced garlic until meat is no longer pink then drain. Add tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt, and oregano.

In a mixing bowl combine the mozzarella (cheddar if you like), parmesan, and cottage cheese.

Spread about 1/4 of meat sauce in bottom of crock pot, add layer of noodles, then add 1/3 of cheese mixture. Repeat until meat sauce and cheese is gone.

Cook on low for 4-5 hours.

I need something NEW to try to get me out of the humdrums, and I can so see this with a salad and some garlic bread as a side..maybe some sliced fruit for dessert. YUM!

Thanks Bonnie this looks like and easy and tasty dish. I am like you and love the slow cooker. I did Lamb on Easter Sunday.
1 4 lb boned leg of lamb, rolled and tied, cut off some of the extra fat.
Place in cooker Pour 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup melted butter over the meat.
Add some sprigs of Fresh Rosemary or dried if not.
Cook Low for about 7 hours.
Serve with Roasted Vegetables.
It was a hit with young and old.
