Wonderful make ahead dish for family get togethers or everyday meals.
  • 2 boxes lasagna noodles
  • 1 24-oz. container ricotta or cottage cheese
  • 4 cups Italian 3-cheese blend, shredded (or mozzarella)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 pounds ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 2 26-oz. jars spaghetti sauce (or make your own)
  1. Grease the crock pot well.
  2. Stir together ricotta cheese, shredded cheese, eggs and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Cook ground beef in large skillet then drain.
  4. Add spaghetti sauce to meat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Layer broken lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese mixture and beef mixture, ending with the beef.
  6. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.
I make this the night before and refrigerate and do NOT cook the lasagna noodles. The sauce will help soften the noodles.
Feel free to add whatever seasonings you enjoy.
I'll also add diced tomatoes and mushrooms to the sauce if I have them.
Make sure and use plenty of sauce/liquid so that the lasagna doesn't dry out.
This also make a ton so you can adjust the recipe accordingly.
If the recipe seems dry during cooking add water for additional moisture.
