Easy Lasagna

1. Spray the interior of the cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Brown the ground beef in a large non-stick skillet. Drain off drippings.
3. Stir in tomato sauce. Mix well.
4. Spread one-fourth of the meat sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker.
5. Arrange one-third of the uncooked noodles over the sauce. (I usually break them up so they fit better.)
6. Combine the cheeses in a bowl. Spoon one-third of the cheeses over the noodles.
7. Repeat these layers twice.
8. Top with remaining sauce.
9. Cover and cook on Low 4 hours.

    I really enjoy making this and have made it for years. I enjoy using elbow maceroni in it instead of lasagna noodles too

    I have made this and it is great. I would like to make this on a work day, so if I set it for 4 hours, the crock pot will the automatically go to warm. I won’t be home until about 6 hours after the lasagna is done. Will the lasagna be ok sitting for that length of time? Thanks!

      I think that….in my opinion, You may be better served to make this on a non-work day, then place it in the fridge. Second days are always fantastic for us with this lasagna. Now having said that, You “might” be safe. I haven’t had the dish sitting that long in “warm”. I’d be concerned about the noodles breaking down too much and ruining dinner.

      Thanks, Crock Pot Guys . . . I had a feeling it would not be good on warm for that amount of time. I will save this for the weekend, and then reheat it during the week. Problem solved! 🙂 Thanks for your quick reply!

    GREAT recipe!!!! I went a little overboard with the cheeses, I did half ricotta and half cottage cheese, but layered it a little too thick lol. Other than my mistake fantastic!

    Well, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but this was another disappointment. I cooked it on low for only 3 hours and the noodles were mushy and unappetizing. Flavour was great. Couldn’t get beyond the texture.

      Jessica, is it possibley your sauce was too liquidy??

    Made the lasagna tonight. It was delicious! I seasoned the browned hamburger with garlic and onion powder and also added turkey pepperoni (quartered) to the meat and sauce mixture. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this and it came out great.! It was actually better on the second day after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.. Next time I think I will mix ricota cheese with the cottage cheese.

      Glad to hear it Mark. Thanks for reporting back. We use the ricotta and we’re never disappointed with it.

    Testimonial from FB – Nancy K

    Made the easy lasagna for dinner today…SUCCESS!!!! I tried to make it a bit healthier, so I used ground turkey and browned it with Worchestershire sauce (thanks CP Guys for the advice).

    I also threw in some onions. Used whole wheat lasagna, low fat ricotta, and low fat mozzarela. Someone who worked in an Italian resturant told me to add some garlic powder and pepper to the cheese mix, and it made it even yummier.

    Oh, and I used Newman’s Own spaghetti sauce (Sockarooni), which was a nice addition to everything. Thank you CPG’S!!!

    Do you use no boil noodles, or regular noodles.

    • posted by The Guys on Sep 25, 2011

      Regular noodles are what we used. No issues at all.

    This was outstanding and sooo easy – making lasagna doesn’t need to be a chore! Will definitely be putting this into the dinner rotation for winter. Actually, if I’d had this recipe this past summer I could have made lasagna without having to turn on the oven! 🙂

    Actually you can’t tell the difference, I have used both and I prefer the cottage cheese 🙂 But you can use ricotta 🙂

    I hope you enjoyed.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I am going to try it tomorrow with ricotta and I will let you know how it turns out.

    What is the amount of cottage cheese please. On my small phone a capital A pops up lol. Thx

    • posted by Gregg on Sep 11, 2011

      I’ll fix that… 1 and 1/2.

    Can I use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese?

    • posted by Gregg on Sep 11, 2011

      Don’t see why not. Sounds great. This was just submitted by a member and it kinda sounds better w/ricotta. Mmmm.
