Our most favorite, easy, yet great for picky kids lasagna. Deliciously tender noodles and meat, and wonderful flavors in the sauce, as it slow cooks for several hours.

How to Make Sydney's Crockpot Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray the liner of the crock pot (or use a slow cooker liner) with Pam, pour one ladle-full of sauce into the crock pot, and add 1 cup water.
  2. Add noodles, followed by some of the cottage cheese/ricotta, followed by some more sauce, repeating until the last layer - top the last layer of noodles with only sauce (you'll add the cheese in step 4, below).
  3. Turn on low for 4 - 6 hours, or until done.
  4. During the last hour of cooking, sprinkle the top with the mozzarella cheese.
