Day 14 Days of the Month

14 - Pi Day: Share your favourite recipe for something round.
   I love this recipe and love the fact that it feeds so many and you can have it for multiple meals.  How is it round you ask, my crock pot is round! Hee hee! 
  Crock Pot Lasagna
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • garlic cloves, crushed and minced
  • large jar spaghetti sauce (such as Ragu in the 1 lb. 10 ounce jar)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 lb. ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan/Romano cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the beef, onion, and garlic in a little oil in a frying pan. Drain off any grease. 
Add the spaghetti sauce into the browned meat mixture. Mix well. 
In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, milk, and egg. Beat until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Then mix in the mozzarella cheese and the grated cheese, so that all the cheeses are combined. 
Grease the slow cooker/Crock Pot with some vegetable shortening on the bottom and sides. 
Put about 1/4 of the meat and sauce mixture in the bottom of the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Put a layer of noodles on top of that (break or cut them if needed). Put about 1/3 of the cheese mixture on top of that. Then repeat with sauce, noodles, cheese for another 2 layers. Top with meat sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until noodles are tender.
