We’ve been on an Italian kick at our house! I am a huge lasagna fan, and love that I can make it in my slow cooker! It actually turned out better than my usual lasagna and it only took about 10 minutes to prepare. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
1 lb. lean ground beef (could be substituted for Italian sausage)
1 (24 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
1 (15 oz) container of ricotta cheese (can use skim ricotta)
1 pkg. Kraft Italian Cheese (approx. 2 cups)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley
6 regular lasagna noodles, uncooked
Brown meat in large skillet; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce and water. In another bowl mix ricotta, 1-1/2 cups Kraft Italian cheese, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, egg and parsley.
Spoon 1 cup meat sauce into slow cooker; top with 3 lasagna noodles, broken to fit; and half of cheese mixture. Cover with 2 cups meat sauce. Top with remaining noodles, broken to fit; cheese mixture and meat sauce. Cover with lid.
Cook on low 4-6 hours or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; let stand, covered, 10 min. or until melted.
