Easy Crock Pot Lasagna

Easy Crock Pot Lasagna

Some might say that the personal computer is the best invention of the modern world, but as a busy mom whose evenings consist of driving my kids to various activities all over the city from 3:30 pm to 9:00 pm, I would say that the crock pot, by far, is the best invention EVER! This life-changing appliance has helped us over-scheduled, modern families have a warm dinner waiting for us at home instead picking up Chipotle or pizza…again.

One of my “go-to” recipes that my whole family loves is my Easy Crock Pot Lasagna. Throw it together in the crock pot after lunch and let it cook on low for 5-6 hours. Whatever time you end up getting home, dinner is served!

Make sure you check out my Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce to use with this recipe!!

Ingredients
  1. Easy homemade pasta sauce (link above) or jarred pasta sauce mixed with 1.5 lbs. browned Italian sausage and/or ground beef
  2. Lasagna noodles, uncooked
  3. 16 oz. Cottage Cheese
  4. 8 oz. Shredded parmesan and mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Make your Easy homemade pasta sauce (link above) or brown your own 1.5 lbs. mixture of Italian sausage and/or ground beef in a skillet and then mix in a jar of your favorite pasta sauce.
  2. Mix your cottage cheese and 3/4 of your 8 oz. shredded parmesan/mozzarella cheese in a bowl. Reserve 1/4 of the shredded parmesan/mozzarella cheese for the end.
  3. Spray your crock pot with non-stick spray.
  4. Pour 1/3 of your meat sauce into the crock pot.
  5. Break apart a few of your lasagna noodles and lay over the sauce.
  6. Spread 1/3 of your cottage cheese mixture over the noodles.
  7. Continue to layer until your crock pot is full. For me, I get 2-3 layers depending on how thick I layer.
  8. Finish off your last layer with the rest of your shredded cheese.
  9. Put your lid on your crock pot and cook on low for 5-6 hours until noodles are tender. Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
