Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 15 oz container ricotta cheese
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided use
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese divided use
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 4-6 lasagna noodles uncooked

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, brown and crumble the ground beef, add in onion and garlic and cook for additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Drain excess grease.
  • Add in spaghetti sauce, broth, add italian herbs, basil and dried parsley. Stir.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 parmesan cheese, egg, pepper and chopped parsley.
  • Spray crock pot with no-stick cooking spray. Scoop approximately 1 cup of meat sauce into bottom of slow cooker.
  • Top with one layer of uncooked lasagna noodles. Just do your best to break them up to fit into your crock pot.
  • Next top with a layer of cheese mixture.
  • Keep adding layers, ending with meat sauce. I was able to get 3 layers in my 5-quart slow cooker.
  • Put the lid on and cook on low for 4-6 hours. You want most of the liquid to be absorbed and noodles should be soft.
  • When it is finished cooking, add remaining cheeses and sprinkle with parsley.
  • Put the lid back on for about 10-15 more minutes until cheese is melted.
