martha moments: mama's crockpot lasagna

so easy you don't even have to cook the noodles.
makes house smell yummy.
requires little to no cooking skill.
but yet tastes like you have tons of cooking skill.
perfect for entertaining.

mama's crockpot lasagna

you'll need:

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (12 ounce) package lasagna noodles
12 ounces cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic until brown. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt, and oregano and stir until well mixed. cook until heated through.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the cottage cheese, grated parmesan cheese, and shredded mozzarella's easiest just to mix it with your bare hands.
  3. Spoon a layer of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the slow cooker. add a double layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles. break to fit noodles into slow cooker. top noodles with a portion of the cheese mixture. repeat the layering of sauce, noodles, and cheese until all the ingredients are used.  meat sauce mixture should end up on top.
  4. cover, and cook on LOW setting for 4 to 6 hours.

    bon appetit!
