Wow! Is this the easiest thing ever?! Having the ground meat already cooked and in the freezer saves time when assembling this meal. I start this about 4 hours before dinner and cook it on high. Then I turn it off to cool slightly before serving so the layers stay together. It's so good!
Crock Pot Lasagna
1-1/2 cup ground meat, pre-cooked (anything you like)
1 jar spaghetti or pasta sauce
6 lasagna sheets, uncooked
1 cup cottage cheese (I use lowfat, just because)
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (I keep this in the freezer too)
2 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese
dried or fresh parsley, chopped
Mix together the meat and sauce in a bowl; set aside. Break the lasagna sheets in half; set aside.
Pour about 1/2 cup meat sauce in the bottom of the crock pot.
Layer this way:
- arrange 4 lasagna sheets over sauce,
- spoon about 1 Tablespoon of cottage cheese over each halved lasagna sheet,
- pour about 1/2-3/4 cup meat sauce over the cottage cheese layer,
- repeat 2 more times,
- then top with mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and parsley.
Turn Crock Pot on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
