Crock Pot Lasagna

Crock Pot Lazagna

I do not claim rights to this recipe – I found it floating around on Facebook.  I made a few small changes and it has become one of my favorites so I wanted to share!

Ingredients
1 pound ground beef
26 ounces pasta sauce
1 cup water
16 ounces ricotta cheese
2 cups Italian cheese
1⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
2 tablespoon dried parsley
8 lasagna noodles, uncooked

Directions
Brown meat and drain. Add pasta sauce and water and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine ricotta, 1-1/2 cup mozzarella, Parmesan, egg and parsley.

Add 1 cup of the meat sauce to the bottom of the crock pot. Break up four of the noodles to cover the bottom. It’s okay if they overlap. Cover with half the cheese mixture and 2 cups meat sauce.
Repeat layers.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and let sit for 15 minutes until melted.

Crockpot LasagnaCheater’s tip: Buy ground beef in bulk, brown it and freeze it in 1-pound portions to make preparing this (and other meals) even easier!  For those on a tight budget, this works well with a boxed lasagna mix (Hamburger Helper type).  Brown hamburger and add sauce mix and water, as directed on the box.  Mix well.  Add noodles and an extra cup of water.  Cook on low heat.  Stir before serving.
