Slow Cooker Lasagna

Slow Cooker Lasagna

But for as delicious as lasagna is, it can be time consuming. That’s why I LOVE to make mine in the slow cooker. You don’t even have to pre-cook the noodles! Just layer sauce, noodles, cheese and repeat. Let it cook for a few hours and BAM!

Tasty homemade Slow Cooker Lasagna with hardly any mess! I make my mom’s awesome homemade spaghetti sauce for the sauce, but you could use any marinara sauce you like! You could also cook it with slow cooker liners to make clean up super easy!

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

  • Step 1

In a large skillet over medium heat brown the ground beef, Italian sausage and onion. Add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, tomato sauce, sugar, and water. Stir and simmer 15-20 minutes. (You could make the sauce in advance!)

  • Step 2

Spread a fourth of the meat sauce into the bottom of your slow cooker. Arrange a third of the noodles over the sauce (break the noodles to fit, if necessary). Combine the mozzarella, cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese; spoon a third of the mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce and sprinkle with extra mozzarella cheese, if desired.

  • Step 3

Cover and cook on low for about 4-5 hours or until noodles are tender.
