Put this on before you go to work and when you get home, the only work to do is to warm up some yummy garlic bread! And Dinner is Served!
Brown 2lbs ground beef with 1 chopped yellow onion and 1 chopped red bell pepper. Pour in one jar of Spaghetti sauce and 1 can of Ro-tel tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes. (I also add a few shakes of dried red pepper flakes...just for some kick!) Basically, make your own meat sauce that you would normally make for Spaghetti.
Mix the following ingredients in a bowl: 16oz carton of cottage cheese, 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (FRESH!!), 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, 1 egg and 1 TBSP oregano.
Grease your crockpot and then spread one layer of the meat/sauce mixture on the bottom of the crockpot. Break your raw lasagna noodles so they fit as best as possible to make your next layer. Cover the noodles with the cheese mixture. Repeat the layers, reserving enough of the meat/sauce for one more layer (which you will place on top of the last layer of the cheese mixture.
Turn the crockpot on low and cook for 6 hours (or 4 hours on high depending on when you want it to be ready). No stirring, no need to open the lid while it cooks. Just make sure your noodles are still a bit firm....don't overcook.
Come home from work and be ready to encounter a delicious smell!
