Slow Cooker Lasagne

I have a fabulous recipe for a traditional lasagne that I make very rarely because it's so much work! This is a super simple way to make a very tasty lasagne style dish. While this may not replace your traditional pan lasagne it should keep you tied over until you find the time to make the real thing.

1 lb. Ground beef
6 Whole wheat lasagne noodles
1 Jar (24 oz.) Spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 cu. Cottage cheese
1 1/2 cu. Shredded mozzarella

Slow cooker, at least 3 1/2 quarts

  • Brown ground beef in the skillet and drain
  • Spoon 1 cu. of the spaghetti sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker
  • Mix remaining spaghetti sauce with beef
  • Place 2 uncooked lasagne noodles on top of sauce in crock pot
  • Spread 1/3 meat mixture on top of noodles
  • Spread 3/4 cu. cottage cheese over meat
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cu. mozzarella over cottage cheese
  • Add another layer of 2 uncooked noodles, 1/3 meat mixture, remaining cottage cheese (3/4 cu), and 1/2 cu mozzarella
  • Add a final layer of 2 uncooked noodles, remaining meat mixture, and 1/2 cu mozzarella
  • Cook on low for 4 hours

Serve and enjoy immediately or store in the fridge and enjoy all week!
