Okay, I didn’t really mean for lazy cooking week here at I’m a Lazy Mom to turn into recipes for Crock Pots only. It has just kind of happened that way. But hold on! I’ve got some great recipes coming that don’t require a crock pot for the rest of the week, mkay? (Plus a really cool one your kids will love!)
Most of you know that I recently went on a trip to see my family in Texas. While I was there my mom made Crock Pot Lasagna. And wouldn’t you know it! It had five ingredients or less. Making it LAZY Crock Pot Lasagna. Score!
So. In honor of my favorite new crock pot, my trip to Texas, and my mom (one of the original Lazy Moms), here’s her recipe!
Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna
(Need a new crockpot? The Hamilton Beach Set n’ Forget is the best one I’ve ever owned! I love how you can lock down the lid for travel!)
1-2 lbs ground beef (or however much you like in your lasagna)
1-2 jars spaghetti sauce (depending on how much meat you use- your meat should be saucy)
1 large container of cottage cheese (or you can use ricotta cheese)
shredded mozzarella cheese
lasagna noodles (uncooked)
Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Once the meat is done pour in the spaghetti sauce and stir together.
Ladle about a cup of the meat sauce into the bottom of the crock pot.
On top of the meat sauce put in a layer of lasagna noodles (you will have to break them to fit).
On top of the lasagna noodles cover with some of the cottage cheese.
On top of the cottage cheese cover with some of the mozzarella cheese.
Then start layers over (meat sauce, noodles, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese).
Do as many layers as you like (usually only 3 layers fits really) then finish off with left over sauce. Make sure all the noodles are covered with sauce or else they won’t cook.
Cook on low 4 to 6 hours. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese when it’s finished and let it stand about 10 min before serving.
And wouldn’t you know it! I forgot to take a finished picture of the the lasagna! So here’s a picture of my mom (well, her hands) pouring meat sauce into her crock pot to start her layers…
*Hi Mom!* Here’s your big debut on I’m a Lazy Mom! You look fabulous. Simply fabulous. Look at that form!
Alrighty then. Go make you some Lazy Crock Pot Lasagna and check back tomorrow for another Lazy Mom Recipe!
