A really delicious tasting lasagna that's prepared in a slow-cooker rather than baked in the oven. You can use both regular uncooked lasagna noodles, or no-boil lasagna noodles.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mrs. dash sodium-free seasoning (Table Blend)
- ground black pepper, sprinkle on desired amount
- 1 (26 1/2 ounce) canhunts traditional style spaghetti sauce
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 1 (12 ounce) container cottage cheese
- 1⁄3 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup Kraft® Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (reserving 1/2 cup)
- 9 lasagna noodles (uncooked)
- In a 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain off fat.
- Add salt, Mrs. Dash, black pepper, spaghetti sauce and tomato paste; cook until heated through.
- In a medium-size bowl, mix together cottage cheese, sour cream, parmesan cheese, and 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese. (Cheese mixture will be thick).
- Be sure to reserve 1/2 cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese, for sprinkling on top the final layer of meat sauce.
- Grease the inside of a 6-quart rectangular slow-cooker.
- Spoon 1/4 of the meat sauce in bottom of slow-cooker.
- Arrange 3 (uncooked) lasagna noodles, over meat sauce (over lapping just a bit).
- Spoon 1/3 of cheese mixture, over the uncooked lasagna noodles.
- Repeat layers twice, with meat sauce, noodles, and cheese mixture.
- Top with remaining meat sauce.
- Sprinkle reserved 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
- Cover, and cook on low setting (NO. 3) for 4 to 4-1/2 hours.
- Note: I cooked this lasagna in a West Bend 6-quart rectangular slow-cooker (that comes with a heating plate).
