Crock Pot Lasagna

pictures from my phone - not the best quality.

Needing to make a quick meal (hockey game night) that was tasty, filling and could cook all day I was off in search of a recipe to fit that bill.

I found this one and it did receive two thumbs up to give it a whirl (always a plus).

Fast and easy to assemble and best of all it needed no extra attention while cooking.

The recipe called for no-cook lasagna noodles but I just used regular lasagna noodles without a problem.

This created one tasty lasagna that left NO leftovers in this house. *woot!*

The guys just went to town on it and told that I could make it anytime I wanted too.

This one is a keeper for sure!

  • Tasty and you will never know that cottage cheese was used in this lasagna.
  • I did not use the tomato paste, added only 1/2 the water in the recipe and it turned out nicely.
