Crockpot Lasagna

Lasagna can be a pain in the ass.  But not with this recipe.  Its delicious, it will cook all day when you are at work...and when you get home your whole place will smell like your girlfriend after she gets off her shift at the Olive Garden.

This is stupid simple.  I recommend making the meat/sauce mixture the night before and refrigerate it.  

Here's what you need:

1-2 pounds of hamburger meat
1 onion
2 tbls of minced garlic
6 oz tomato paste
1 28oz can of tomato sauce
1 tbls dried oregano
4 cups of mozzarella cheese
12 oz cottage cheese
6 oz of parmesan cheese
1 package of dried lasagna noodles

There isn't a lot of prep.  Chop the onion into small peices.  

Brown yo beef in a skillet with the onion for ten minutes. 


Drain the liquid out and add the garlic and oregano and cook for another 3 minutes. 

Mix all the cheeses together in a big bowl.  

Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste to the meat.  

In the crock pot, make a layer of the noodles.  I had to snap some of them into weird shapes to get them to fit.  Get creative with it.  Get the kids involved  Shit I don't care just make it happen.  

Pour in a layer of the meat sauce on top of the noodles.  

Then a layer of the cheese.  Repeat until you are out of ingredients.  Just make sure that the top layer is cheese...for presentation's sake.  

Put it on low ...  6-8 hour mode.  Go to work.  Come home.  Stuff yer face with this bliss.

Done and done.
