Slow Cooker Lasagna

March 1, 2012

 

At the last minute, I decided to add mushrooms so they are not shown in this pictures.

(Note:  Since I am usually cooking for only two – pictures show 1/2 the recipe

2 pounds lean ground turkey (or lean ground beef)

1 T.  garlic granules

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. italian seasoning

2 tsp. seasoned salt

 12 oz. sliced mushrooms (optional)

Cook ground turkey (or ground beef).  Add seasonings.  Add mushrooms.

16 oz. fat-free cottage cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Combine cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese.

2 –  26 oz. jars marinara sauce (with garlic and italian spices)

Add a thin layer of marinara sauce to the bottom of the crock pot.

Add a layer of the ground turkey (or ground beef) mixture.

1 – 9 oz. package lasagna noodles, uncooked

Add a layer of noodles, breaking the noodles to make them fit.  It’s ok to overlap them.

Top the noodle layer with a layer of the cheese mixture.

Repeat until all the ingredients are used, ending with a layer of sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.

1/4 – 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

A few minutes before serving, top with mozzarella cheese.  Serve after the cheese has melted.

Substitutions:  Ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese
