Oh my gosh, this is soooooo easy & soooooo yummy!!



I had my in-laws over & we tested this one out together! My kids, the in-laws & my hubby all gave it a thumbs up...



Plus, it took 25 minutes to make.... that's it. Dinner done. There were 6 of us & we only ate half, so this is a great meal for either left overs or guest, whichever works for you.



Ingredients:



1 lb ground beef (I used extra lean...next time, I'll try ground turkey)

1 (29 oz) can of tomato sauce ( I used a whole jar of marinara sauce)

8 oz. pkg lasagna noodles, uncooked

4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 1/2 cups cottage cheese



*Spray the interior of the cooker w/ nonstick spray. Ina large skillet, brown the beef, stir in the sauce, mix well.



*Spread 1/4 of the meat sauce on the bottom of the crock pot.

*Arrange 1/3 of the uncooked noodles over the sauce, breaking them to fit, if needed

*Combine the cheeses in a bowl & spoon 1/3 of the cheese mixture over noodles

*Repeat the layers twice

*top w/ remaining sauce

*Cover & Cook on LOW for 4 Hours, mine was done perfectly after this.



I used these variations: Chopped 1 whole onion, 2 tsp italian seasonings, 1 tsp garlic salt into meat mixture. Added 1 cup of Parmesean cheese to the cheese mixture & upped the other cheeses by a cup...because I like it that way.



Topped the whole thing w/ a little mozzerella in the last 5 min of cooking!



This was truly wonderful!!!! Cooks up just perfect!!! I served it w/ a nice green salad & garlic bread & everyone was very very happy!!
