Crock Pot Lasagna



 I've had these pre-cooked lasagna noodles knocking around the pantry for a while. When my preferred spaghetti sauce went on sale I decided to give Crock Pot Lasagna a whirl. You'll find these recipes all over Pinterest, but the one I started from was on Allrecipes.

Crock Pot Lasagna

1 12 ounce package lasagna noodles
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 20oz package ground turkey
garlic and oregano, to taste
2 cans Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce, your favorite flavor
1 15oz package fat-free Ricotta
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
16oz shredded Mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet over medium heat brown the ground turkey with the onions, seasoning with the garlic and oregano. Add the spaghetti sauce and combine well.

Meanwhile, combine the three cheeses. They'll make a thick paste.

Spray the crock with cooking spray. 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.

Cook for 4-6 hours on low. Before serving top with mozzarella cheese and put the lid back on for about 10 minutes to melt it. 

I used pre-cooked lasagna noodles. At 5 1/2 hours I think they really soaked up the sauce a lot, so maybe next time I'll use uncooked noodles. But it was yummy and everyone liked it!
