Crockpot Lasagna

I actually haven’t made this in quite a while, and I’ve never taken pictures of it, but a friend asked me for the recipe and this seemed like the easiest way to share it. I discovered this in the Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook my mom passed on to me when I got married six and a half years ago, and I’ve only made “real” lasagna once since.

Helen’s Lasagna (from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting with your Slow Cooker)
Makes 6-8 servings

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
29-oz. can tomato sauce
1 cup water
6-oz. can tomato paste
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
8-oz. pkg. lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 cups (16 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) small-curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Cook beef, onion, and garlic together in saucepan until browned. Drain.
2. Stir in tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt, and oregano. Mix well.
3. Spread one-fourth of meat sauce in ungreased slow cooker. Arrange one third of noodles over sauce.
4. Combine the cheeses. Spoon one-third of mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce.
5. Cover. Cook on Low 4-5 hours.

    Hi Karin: This sounds good. Chuck Jr. is coming to sit with G’pa Sunday while I go to church (Had to miss it last week b/c he was not feeling at all well and I didn’t want to leave him alone) and I was wondering what to have for lunch as he will be staying for that, so I think I will try this. Can I get it ready Saturday and refrig. it for the night?

    Those were cute pictures of Hailey. She really gets around!!!

    Grandma, I haven’t put it all together the night before, but you probably could. The noodles might get really soft would be the only thing. I have prepared the meat sauce and the cheese mixture the night before and then assembled everything in the morning before church. It goes together pretty quickly that way. Hope it turns out good!
