Crockpot Lasagna

Traditional lasagna is delicious but can be time-consuming to prepare. I really enjoy making this easy crockpot version that is perfect for taking to a potluck or to have ready when you come home from church.

When I take this to church events, I rarely bring even a spoonful back home with me. It's a crowd pleaser!

Crockpot Lasagna

12 lasagna noodles,uncooked
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning(I use oregano and basil instead)
1 jar(28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup water
1 carton (16 ounces) cottage cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese,grated

Break noodles in half. Place half of the noodles in bottom of greased 4-quart slow cooker. Stir Italian seasoning into meat and spread half over the noodles already in slow cooker. Then layer half of the sauce and water, half of the cottage cheese, and half of mozzarella cheese over beef. Repeat layers. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours. Do not cook more than 5 hours.

Makes 6-8 servings.

Serve with salad and garlic bread.

Yummy, sounds good. I have heard of people doing lasagna in the crockpot, but I haven't done it.
