Wednesday Kitchen - Crockpot Lasagna

Welcome to another Wednesday Kitchen, featuring recipes from members of the JET Team! Today our team captain Kerri (affectionately known as "Emo"), who runs EmotionalOasis on Etsy, shares a quick and easy crockpot recipe for lasagna...

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 8 oz pkg uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1.5 cups cottage cheese

Method

  1. Spray crock pot with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Brown the ground beef and stir in the spaghetti sauce.
  3. Combine cheeses in a bowl.
  4. Spread a quarter of the beef sauce on the bottom of the crock pot.
  5. Arrange a third of the noodles over the sauce.
  6. Spoon a third of the cheese mixture over the noodles.
  7. Repeat each of the layers twice, and top with remaining sauce.
  8. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours OR cook on warm for 6 hours.
  9. Allow to sit uncovered for 10 minutes before serving.

"I substitute my own homemade sauce for the jar sauce, and in summer time I nab spinach leaves from the garden and add them into the layers. Good stuff!!"

What a great idea! Lasagna is one of my very favorite foods! I don't know if I could ever use a crockpot as I have zero patience when it comes to food. I'm always in there snitching and you can't do that with a crockpot. Thanks for sharing, I know what we are having for dinner! LASAGNA!

Mmmmmm, sounds good. But I need some of your homemade sauce Emo, can you send me some???
I love recipes you can sort of forget about and let cook. Almost like eating out but with healthy food!
Thanks Emo!

Anything that goes in a crock pot gets a "yes" vote from me, and lasagna is one of the few Italian dishes my hubby will eat, so I'm definitely going to try this one. Thanks for sharing, Emo!
