Put these ingredients in a slow cooker to make remarkable slow cooker lasagna


Lasagna is an all-time favorite for many. The thick noodles, melt-in-your-mouth cheese, and rich meat sauce are perfect for any time of year, and relatively quick to whip up. And now, a recipe from I Heart Recipes is making this dish even easier than ever with the help of a slow cooker.
Best yet – prep time is just five minutes! Meaning this Italian classic might just become a weekly favorite.


1 lb ground beef
½ lb lasagna pasta
4 cups of my homemade vegetable marinara sauce OR 1 jar of pasta sauce
1¼ cup cottage cheese
1½ cup Italian cheese blend
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
salt & pepper to taste( optional)
parsley flakes ( optional)
If you want to add a little more flavor to this awesome dish, we suggest cooking the ground beef in olive oil, some fresh garlic (1/2 clove or to taste), and with a pinch of red pepper flakes. Infusing the beef with those amazing fats from the oil, the tang of the garlic, and some heat from the red peppers is going to really amp up this dish. Plus, it doesn’t take any extra time.
Getting Started:
1. Brown the ground beef over medium heat, and if you desire, add in some of that fresh garlic, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
2. Pour in the marinara sauce right on top, and add Italian seasoning. Then, mix in the cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of Italian blend cheese. Heat until warm, and combined well, and remove the pan from the heat.
3. Break the lasagna pasta into halves (or smaller) and place them on the bottom of the slow cooker, then pour in the meat and cheese sauce. Repeat until you’ve used up the ingredients.
4. Top off the top of the lasagna with the remaining cottage cheese and Italian cheese blend. Sprinkle with parsley flakes, put on the lid, and let it cook on low for 3 hours.


5. Serve, and enjoy!
