Lazy Mama's Crockpot Lasagna

This is a fabulous crock pot recipe from reader Christine:

1 diced onion
couple of cloves minced garlic
oregano, basil
2 large cans crushed tomatoes
1 lb ground something (we like turkey)
3-4 cups shredded mozzarella
2 15oz cottage cheese
1 box lasagna noodles (I always get whole wheat)

Brown 1 lb of something with onions, garlic, oregano, basil and throw in some salt and pepper, of course. Toss in the crushed tomatoes. You layer everything in the crock pot: broken up dry noodles, meat mixture, cottage cheese, mozzarella. I do about three layers, so just divide up everything you have by three and get to layering. 3-5 hours on low. I always then turn it off and let it sit a good 15 minutes, as sometimes it may not have thickened up (because I always forget to get it going in time and am barely making the three-hour mark). Granted, nobody cares. It's yum.

  1. This looks great and might inspire me to buy a larger crock pot. I only have a mini one right now - I won it at a party. Does the turkey taste like beef? Or does it taste totally different?

  2. YUM. I will try this one tonight.

    Christy-
    In a sauce like in this recipe you should barely be able to tell the difference between turkey & beef. Lean white meat turkey comes out slightly less moist then just straight turkey (combo of dark & white meats), but both are definitely a better choice than beef! :)
