Crock Pot Lasagna
You will love this slow cooker lasagna. Ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses make a delicious cheese mixture that melts together for a gooey cheesy layer. This recipe is so simple you even use uncooked lasagna noodles and jared pasta sauce. You can easily substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta and ground beef for the sausage.
Brown sausage breaking up any large chunks, until the meat is browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the spaghetti sauce and water and bring to a simmer.
In another bowl, stir together the ricotta, parsley, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of the slow-cooker. Cover the sauce with a single layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (about 3), breaking the noodles as needed to fit. Spread about 1/3 cup of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Top with about 2 cups of the sauce, then sprinkle with about 1 cup of the mozzarella and 1/4 cup of the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Repeat the layers 4 more times.
Cover and cook on low according to the manufacturer’s instructions until the noodles are tender and cooked through, about 4 hours.
