I made it up out of desperation for my mom to eat healthier. It's low-fat but you would never think it.
1 box lasagna noodles
1/2 lb. low-fat ground beef
1/2 lb. low-fat ground turkey
1 small container low-fat Cream Cheese (not ricotta)
1 small onion
1/2 green bell pepper
1 cup small button mushrooms
2 grated carrots
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 lb. pkg. of mozzarella cheese, low fat
Using a cooking spray, spray your crock pot well (you will be glad you did this). Brown the meat and drain, then run hot water to drain even more of the fat content out. Chop onion, green bell pepper, and mushrooms.
In the crock pot lay a layer of noodles (no need to precook), then layers of meat, cheese, cream cheese, sauce, and veggies until you fill crock pot up.
This is great first, because of the Alfredo sauce, secondly, using a crockpot, you can plug it in and go do something else.
1 lb. ground beef
26-28 oz. spaghetti sauce
8 oz. tomato sauce
9 oz. (8) lasagna noodles
1 lb. jar of Alfredo sauce
12 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
Brown hamburger in skillet and drain. Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Spread 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce in bottom of crock pot. Stir in remaining spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce into ground beef. Layer 3 lasagna noodles over the sauce, break noodles if necessary. Top with 1/3 of the Alfredo sauce, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with 1 cup of Mozzarella cheese. Top with 1/3 of ground beef mixture, spreading evenly. Repeat layering twice, using 2 noodles in the last layer. Sprinkle Parmesan on top

Combine all ingredients, except noodles, in a large bowl. Pour half the mixture into a crock pot. Place the uncooked noodles over top of mixture, then pour the other half of mixture over top. Push noodles into mixture to be submerged, if necessary.
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
You can add shredded cheese to melt on top if desired.

I am looking for a recipe called crockpot lasagna. I believe it was posted once. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the recipe I had saved.

Slow Cooker Lasagna
1 lb. ground beef
1 chopped onion
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 (28 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 (12 oz.) package lasagna noodles
1 (12 oz.) container cottage cheese
<1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
16 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large skillet over medium heat cook the ground beef, onion and garlic until brown. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and oregano and stir until well incorporated. Cook until heated through. In a large bowl mix together the cottage cheese, grated Parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella cheese. Spoon a layer of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the slow cooker. Add a double layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles. Break to fit noodles into slow cooker. Top noodles with a portion of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layering of sauce, noodles and cheese until all the ingredients are used. Cover and cook on low heat in slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours. Makes 10 serving
large tub Cottage Cheese (small or large curd, doesn't matter)
large pack (16 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
box lasagna noodles, uncooked
Brown ground beef with chopped onions. Season with season salt, pepper, garlic powder (can use fresh garlic if you prefer) to taste. Drain fat. Add jar sauce, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, approx 1/3 jar water and sugar (I also add Italian seasoning). Simmer approx 10 minutes.
While beef mix is simmering, combine large tub cottage cheese and mozzarella. (I sometimes throw in some parsley to make it look pretty!) Put enough of the sauce on bottom of crockpot to cover. Layer noodles (I usually break them in half so they fit better!). Approx 3-1/2 noodles per layer. Doesn't matter which direction you lay them! On top of noodles, layer ground beef, sauce mixture then cheeses. Repeat layers to fill crock pot. Make sure you leave enough sauce to put on last layer of noodles. Then top with last of cheese mixture.
Cook approx 6 hours on low. If you like you can add cheese on top last half hour of cooking. Do not stir! Serve with Parmesan cheese, salad and garlic bread. (03/27/2007)
