Crock Pot Lasagna

Hello Dear Followers!
Below is an easy to make Crock Pot Lasagna. Including prep time, this takes close to seven hours but it's worth every moment of wait time. Your home will be filled with the odoriferous emanations of Italian cooking all day long and the taste is unreal! This is something I have made many times during the day and taken to the firehouse for dinner. The crew loves it and I think you will too!


1 pound ground turkey or 1 pound ground sirloin
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 28 oz jar spaghetti sauce (your favorite)
1/3 cup water
12 lasagna noodles
6 oz fresh mushrooms, coarse chopped
1 15 oz carton ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


Brown meat and seasoning, drain.
Mix spaghetti sauce and water. Place 4 uncooked noodles in lightly greased crockpot.
Layer with beef mixture, sauce and mushrooms.
Spread evenly with ricotta cheese and sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella.
Layer with 4 noodles, meat, sauce mixture, mushrooms and 1/2 of remaining mozzarella cheese.
Layer with final four noodles and remaining mozzarella cheese.
Cover, cook on high 1 hour.
Reduce heat and cook on low 5 hrs.
Remove cover and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes before serving.
