Ingredients

1 Jar (28 oz) of Spaghetti Sauce (your favorite brand)

1 8 oz can of tomato sauce

1 cup water

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon Italian seasonings

8 oz ricotta or cottage cheese

8 oz mozzarella cheese

1 lb cooked ground beef or Italian sausage

Lasagna noodles (uncooked)

¼ cup parmesan cheese

 

Instructions

Brown the meat and drain.

Mix together the spaghettisauce, tomato sauce and water and add spices.

Spoon enough spaghetti sauce mixture into the bottom of the crock pot to cover it lightly so the noodles don’t stick.

Put a layer of noodles next followed by spaghetti sauce, meat, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Always put the spaghetti sauce layer on top of the noodles so the noodles can absorb moisture.

Continue until you have 3 to 4 layers of each and then sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese.

Cook on low 5 to 6 hours.

Don’t lift the lid too much – you need the moisture for the noodles.

    using ninja 4 in 1 cooker to try your recipe. Hope it turns out. You don’t say wether to leave vent in cover open or plug it. ???

      I never plug the hole. It wasn’t designed to be plugged.

    I have made this before and it was one of my BEST MEALS EVER! I’ve been trying to find the recipe to make again, and Finally found it. I was skeptical of making lasagna in a crock pot, thinking the noodles would be way too mushy. NOT AT ALL! Best lasagna I have ever made.

      I am so glad you like it. I have made it so many times. It was a recipe a friend gave me and has become a favorite for us too.

    If I replace meat with vegetables how would the timing change and should I cook veggies first?

    I made this recipe and it was very good. Initially, the noodles were soggy but once I put them in the fridge and had them for left-overs, the meal was absolutely perfect. I love the little ninja cooker much more than I do baking in an oven. I didn’t need to use tomato sauce as the right mix of spaghetti sauce and water was enough. This recipe made nine squares. I will be making this recipe again and again and again. I put the sauce on the bottom of the pan and then on top of the mixture for each layer. So basically, the sauce touches the noodles above.
