Total Time4 hrs 10 mins
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/2 pound ground Italian sausage (could also use ground beef)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 24 ounce jar spaghetti sauce
- 1 cup water (divided)
- 15 ounces ricotta cheese
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (divided)
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg
- 9-12 lasagna noodles (uncooked)
Optional: Fresh basil for serving
Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Brown the hamburger and Italian sausage in a pan over medium heat. Drain grease and then add Italian seasoning and onions. Cook until onions are soft and then stir in the sauce with 1/2 cup water. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
While the sauce is simmering, mix together the ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and egg.
Scoop about a cup of the sauce onto the bottom of the crock pot. Then top with 3 noodles (you may need to break some noodles to fit). Then spread about 1/3 of the cheese mixture. Repeat with 2 more layers, or until all the ingredients are used. Add 1/2 cup water around the sides.
Sprinkle remaining cup of mozzarella cheese on top. Cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until noodles are tender. Top with fresh basil, if desired.
