Easy to Make Crock Pot Lasagna

lasagnaEveryone loves pasta, cheese, tomato, and meat, am I right? Even the pickiest of eaters can't resist this delicious combination of ingredients -- lasagna is a crowd-pleaser. No need to worry about layering noodles and watching the stove with this recipe, though. Throw a few ingredients in the crock pot, run some errands, watch a soccer game, then come home to your delicious home-cooked meal.

Crock Pot Lasagna


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves,m smashed
  • 1 (28 ounce) can tomato sauce 
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano 
  • 12 ounces cottage cheese (we like 2%)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese or 1/2 cup asiago cheese 
  • 12 ounces lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Brown ground beef, onion and garlic in frypan.
  2. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and oregano.
  3. Cook long enough to get it warm.
  4. Spoon a layer of meat sauce onto the bottom of the slow cooker.
  5. Add a double layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (break to fit) and top with cheeses.
  6. Repeat with sauce, noodles and cheeses until all are used up.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

So simple and so delicious! Enjoy.
