Slow Cooker Lasagna

Leave a comment

Recently, I made slow cooker lasagna, and even bf the chef liked it! My sister S7 tried it as well and had to go out and buy a slow cooker for herself too.  This recipe can adjusted to your liking: add spinach, don’t use mushrooms, use ground turkey, etc.
**unfortunately, I neglected to take a picture until all we had left were leftovers**

Meat layer:
1lb ground beef, browned and drained
796 ml crushed tomatoes
156 ml tomato paste
fresh mushrooms, sliced (i used around 7)
spices (i used black pepper, roasted garlic and pepper, italian seasoning)

lasagna noodles, uncooked

Cheese layer:
500 ml cottage cheese (or ricotta cheese)
2-3tbsp parmesan cheese
handful shredded mozzarella

Brown the ground beef, saute the mushrooms, and mix in the tomatoes and tomato paste.  Simmer on low for 10 minutes.

Combine cottage cheese, parmesan, and mozzarella in a separate bowl.

In the slow cooker, start with a layer of 1/4 of  meat sauce. Then break the noodles so they fit in the bowl for the next layer.  Spread 1/3 the cheese mixture on top of the noodles. Repeat this 3 times, and top with a final layer of meat sauce.

Cook on low for 4-5 hours.
In the last 30 minutes, sprinkle a layer of shredded lasagna.

Note: I used a 2 quart slow cooker, and could only use half of the meat mixture. I saved the other half for pasta sauce for later.
