Recipe Swap and Hop

I am participating in a recipe swap today. If you hopped over to my blog from Lysa Terkeurst's blog, welcome! I hope you will look around and visit again.

Quick and Easy Crock Pot Lasagna

Nonstick cooking spray
1 lb. bulk sweet Italian sausage (turkey or beef
1 26oz. jar of tomato/basil pasta sauce
1/2 cup of water
12 no-boil lasagna noodles
1 15oz. container of ricotta cheese
1 8oz. package of shredded Italian blend cheeses

    Lightly coat the inside of a 3.5 to 4 qt. slow cooker with cooking spray. In a skillet, cook sausage over mediam heat until brown. Drain fat. (If using sausage links, cut sausage and return to skillet.) Stir in pasta sauce and water.

    Place a cup of the meat mixture in the bottom of the prepared cooker. Layer four of the noddles, broken to fit, on top of the meat mixture. Top with one-third of the ricotta cheese, one-third of the remaining meat mixture, and one-third of the shredded cheese.

    Repeat layers twice, starting with noodles and ending with meat mixture. Set remaining cheese aside. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 3 hours. Uncover; sprinkle lasagna with remaining shredded cheese. Let stand, uncovered, for 15 minutes before serving.

    Enjoy the tasty recipe! If you want to check out other recipes and blogs, be sure to visit Lysa's blog.
