Crockpot Lasagna
8 Lasagna noodles
1- 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 large jar of ragu, prego, or your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 C. cottage cheese
2 C. mozzarella cheese, grated
You can also add any, all, or none of the following according to your taste:
1 t. parsley flakes
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dried basil
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper

Break lasagna noodles into bite size pieces & cook in boiling water until tender but firm. Drain.
Fry ground beef with the diced onions in skillet until browned, drain.
Into the crockpot add the cooked noodles, cooked beef, spaghetti sauce, cheeses, and the rest of the ingredients.
The recipe I have says to cook on low in crockpot for 7-9 hours....but that is WAY too long. All of the ingredients are already cooked. You only need to cook this a few hours. I usually put in on high for about an hour, then turn to low for 2 hours or so.

This is so good served with garlic bread & cottage cheese. And it's one of those dishes that has left overs that are even better the next day.
