Crock Pot Lasagna




Returning from vacation is tough. I'm still unpacking and doing laundry and haven't gotten to the grocery store yet. Not that I'm complaining. We had a great time in Disney, it's just hard getting back into the swing of things after being gone 9 days! Anyway, I decided on making this Crock Pot Lasagna because it's so easy and I actually had all the ingredients on hand. It's a family favorite and I love when my Crock Pot does all the work!

Crock Pot Lasagna
Serves 6

Ingredients
16 oz. 93/7 ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
4 cups marinara sauce
2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
2  cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
1 container (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
15 no bake lasagna noodles

Cook beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain and stir in sauce, basil and salt.

In a large bowl mix together one cup of the mozzarella cheese, garlic powder, ricotta, and Parmesan cheeses.

Spoon one-fourth of the meat mixture into 6-quart slow cooker; top with 5 noodles, broken into pieces to fit. Spread with half of the cheese mixture and one-fourth of the meat mixture. Top with 5 noodles, remaining cheese mixture and one-fourth of the meat mixture.

Top with remaining 5 noodles and remaining meat mixture.

Cover and cook on low heat setting 3-4 hours or until noodles are tender.

Sprinkle top of lasagna with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into pieces. Enjoy!
