Slow Cooker Lasagna

This recipe has become one of my favorites. It is SO easy and delicious! I just thought I'd share. Since I can't eat flour, I use rice lasagna noodles.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

8 lasagne noodles, broken into bite-size pieces
3 L boiling water
2 tsp. cooking oil (optional)
2 tsp. salt

1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef

3/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 x 14oz canned tomatoes, with juice, broken up
5 1/2 oz. tomato paste
1 cup creamed cottage cheese
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
2 tsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. dried whole oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. dried sweet basil
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Cook lasagna noodle pieces in boiling water, cooking oil and salt in large pot for 14-16 minutes until tender but firm. Drain

Scramble-fry ground beef in non-stick frying pan until browned. Drain well. Turn into 3 1/2 quart (3.5L) slow cooker.

Add remaining 12 ingredients. Stir well. Add lasagna noodle pieces. Stir. Cover. Cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours. Makes 10 cups.

We had this for dinner last night - and EVERYONE liked it... that is nothing short of amazing! I did use Italian tomatoes instead of the regular and then didn't add the spices. I also used Ricotta cheese instead of cottage.
