Monday’s Money-Saving Recipe – Crockpot Lasagna

Lasagna can be very difficult to make, but when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to share it! As a working mom, making delicious homemade dinners isn’t always easy, so I love finding recipes that work for our busy lifestyle. The thing I hate most is the prep time…this recipe only takes 25 minutes! How easy is that? Just let the crockpot do the rest!!

PREP TIME: 25 Min TOTAL TIME: 6 Hr 35 Min SERVINGS: 8

1 pound bulk Italian sausage
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
3 cans (15 ounces each) Italian-style tomato sauce
2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
1 container (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
15 uncooked lasagna noodles
  1. Cook sausage and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, basil and salt.
  2. Mix 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and the ricotta and Parmesan cheeses. (Refrigerate remaining mozzarella cheese while lasagna cooks.)
  3. Spoon one-fourth of the sausage mixture into 6-quart slow cooker; top with 5 noodles, broken into pieces to fit. Spread with half of the cheese mixture and one-fourth of the sausage mixture. Top with 5 noodles, remaining cheese mixture and one-fourth of the sausage mixture. Top with remaining 5 noodles and remaining sausage mixture.
  4. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours or until noodles are tender.
  5. Sprinkle top of lasagna with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into pieces.
