Crock Pot Lasagna

1 lb. ground beef

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 yellow onion, diced

26 oz. jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce

1/2 teas salt

1 cup water

15 oz. ricotta cheese

1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella (plus 1/4 cup extra for topping)

2 tbsp parmesan cheese (plus 1 tbsp extra for topping)

1 egg

2 tbsp dried oregano

Dried lasagna noodles

Brown beef, garlic and onion in large skillet. Drain. Stir in sauce, salt and water. In a separate bowl combine ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, egg and oregano.

Begin layering in crock pot 1 cup meat sauce, top with a layer of UNCOOKED lasagna noodles (broken to fit), then thin layer of cheese mixture. Keep layering sauce, noodles and cheese to the top. Cover with lid and cook on low 4-6 hours or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with additional mozzarella and parmesan the last 10 minutes and cover until melted.

Do NOT cook on high setting or for more than 6 hours! It will be dry and overcooked.

*note – it won’t look as uniform as traditional lasagna, but it will be just as delicious!
