Slow Cooker Lasagna

The other day I was looking for a fast yet somewhat healthy recipe to make. While browsing through the recipes over at, I found this recipe. I always read some of the reviews to make sure it really isn't going to be spit-out-nasty food, but the reviews raved about how delicious and easy it was to make. I was sold! I did substitute ground turkey and added some minced garlic and Italian seasoning when cooking the meat. The reviews were right! It was good and easy to make! Although I must make a note here and say that Sissy's lasagna is still my favorite!!!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

1 pound ground beef
1 jar (24 ounce) spaghetti sauce
1 up water
1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
1 package (7 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
1 egg
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
6 lasagna noodles, uncooked

Brown meat in large skillet; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce and water. Mix ricotta, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella, 2 tablespoons parmesan, egg and parsley.

Spoon 1 cup meat sauce into slow cooker; top with layers of half each of the noodles, broken to fit; and cheese mixture. Cover with 2 cups meat sauce. Top with remaining noodles, broken to fit; cheese mixture and meat sauce. Cover with lid.

Cook on low 4-6 hours or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; let stand, covered, 10 minutes or until melted.
