Here is how I do mine: Crock Pot Lasagna
1 pound ground beef
1 tsp garlic powder OR you could use fresh
1 jar (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce (I use the chunky garden veggie) also I rinse the jar out and add that to the sauce, no waste
1/3 cup water
1/2 of a container ricotta cheese (1 cup)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP parsley
1 TBSP Italian seasoning
lasagna noodles, uncooked
Cook the ground beef with the parsley and Italian seasoning with 1/3 cup of water. After the meat is done, add the spaghetti sauce. Remove from the heat and add in the Parmesan cheese and ricotta. Stir well until smooth.
I spray my crock pot with non stick spray or wipe the inside with olive oil, then place one large TBSP full of sauce in the bottom. Now start laying noodles, sauce, cheese, noodles, sauce ,cheese until you have filled the crock to 3/4 full or ran out of sauce whichever happens first. Now place the lid on top and cook on low for 2-4 hours.
I serve this with a lovely salad and fresh made bread. Bread Recipe
