I changed up my menu planning this week, just so I could make this meal and take pictures of it and submit it to The CSI Project for their Slow Cooker theme this week!!
I usually make this meal on Sundays. It's a 4 hour crockpot meal and it is so nice to come home to a hot meal without a ton of work!! I have even assembled it the night before and put it in the fridge and just popped it into the crockpot and turned it on in the morning!!
This is also an AWESOME pot luck meal as it stays warm! I have made this MANY times when we served at our local rescue mission because it stays hot during the service!!
SO here is CrockPot Lasagna!
8 oz. lasagna noodles (9 or 10 noodles)
1 lb italian sausage
2 jars tomato sauce
16 oz. Ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded Mozzerella
Shred the cheese if you don't buy already shredded...
Cook the sausage, and drain off the fat
Grease the slow cooker and add a layer of sauce on the bottom
Break Lasagna noodles to fit in slow cooker
add more sauce, then sausage and cheeses
sprinkle with a layer of garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt/pepper to taste
keep layering until ingredients are use up
End with a delicious layer of Mozzerella
Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours (I have never cooked more than 5... usually only 4)
and then enjoy the tasty goodness that is Lasagna!
