Donna Kaufmann


2 pound ground beef
2 jar (26 oz.) your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 (15 oz.) container small curd cottage cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided use
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided use
1 egg
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
1 tsp basil
lasagna noodles, uncooked

Brown and crumble ground beef in a large skillet. Drain excess grease from beef and put back into skillet.
Pour in spaghetti sauce. Give it all a good stir.

In a separate bowl, mix together cottage cheese, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 C Parmesan cheese, egg, pepper, 1 tsp basil and chopped parsley. (Put your remaining cheeses back in the fridge, you'll be using those as a topping later)

Spray crock pot with no-stick cooking spray.
Scoop approximately 1 cup of meat sauce into bottom of slow cooker. Top with one layer of uncooked lasagna noodles.
Just do your best to break them up to fit into your crock pot. Next top with a layer of cheese mixture.

Keep adding layers, ending with meat sauce. I was able to get 3 layers in my 5-quart slow cooker.

Put the lid on and cook on low for 4-6 hours. You want most of the liquid to be absorbed and noodles should be soft.

When it is finished cooking, add remaining cheeses and sprinkle with parsley.

Put the lid back on for about 10-15 more minutes until cheese is melted.
