DIRECTIONS

  • Cook beef, onion and garlic until beef is no longer pink.
  • Drain.
  • Mix in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, oregano, basil and crushed red pepper flakes and simmer 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl, mix ricotta cheese and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Spoon 1/3 of beef mixture into a 5-quart crock pot.
  • Break 3 lasagna sheets in half and arrange over beef mixture.
  • Top with half of ricotta mixture.
  • Repeat with another layer and finish with remaining beef.
  • Cook on low setting for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Turn off crock pot.
  • In a bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top of lasagna.
  • Cover until cheese melts and lasagna firms up, about 10 minutes.
  • If you like to sneak veggies into your lasagna, add a can of zucchini in tomato sauce to the meat mixture.
  • I keep cooked ground beef in the freezer so this is easier to put together. I mix the beef and tomato mixture and let sit overnight. I then assemble the lasagna in the morning.
