Crockpot Lasagne

I had a few requests for this lasange on the WTM boards, so I thought I'd post it here so I can keep track of it. It is delicious and simple. At my house, it feeds six hungry adults and two hungry children. The recipe says it feeds 10.

Meat sauce:
1 pound ground beed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cloves garlic, minced
29 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper

Cheese mixture:
16 oz mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 c cottage cheese (12 oz container)
1/2 c Parmesan

4 oz lasagne noodles

Cook the onion and garlic with the beef till browned. Add the rest of the meat sauce ingredients and simmer 2-3 minutes. Combine cheeses separately. Spread 1/4 of the meat sauce on the bottom of the crockpot, then 1/3 of the noodles, breaking to fit. Top with 1/3 of the cheese, then repeat the layers twice and top with remaining meat sauce. Cook on low 4-5 hours.


  1. You don't happen to have a good recipe for Crock-pot Wassail, do you? Sans rum, of course... :-)


  2. I do make wassail in the crockpot, but I don't have a real recipe. We just buy the Aspen Mullings Spices (I think that's what it's called). I dump in the whole carton with 1 gallon of fresh apple juice in the crockpot. Then I leave it on low all day and people can ladle it up as they please. I think the BYU bookstore carries the spice mix.

    I'll get a link posted to your blog when I figure out how to do links in the sidebar. :)
