Crock Pot Lasagna

 
It's been such a warm "winter" in Florida this year. Temperatures finally dropped to the 60's last weekend so I was craving some hearty comfort food. I had been wanting to make a crock pot lasagna for a while so I took advantage of the chilly weather and researched a few recipes. I ended up making my own version with layers of sausage & ground beef and spinach. It turned out so delicious! My 8 year old nephew ate three servings, which was the ultimate compliment since he's a very picky eater! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
 
 
Ingredients
1 pound ground beef
1 pound hot sausage
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
16 ounces ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg
2 tablespoons basil, chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 1/2 jars of spaghetti sauce (about 36 oz)
2 cups spinach
1 box lasagne noodles
 
Recipe
In a large skillet, brown beef & sausage. Add onion and garlic, stir frequently for about 5 minutes. 
In a large pot, mix sauce and the meat mixture together and simmer for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, egg, basil and parsley.
In the crock pot, add one layer of the meat sauce to cover the bottom of the pan completely.
Top with lasagne noodles - break pieces to fit if necessary.
Next, add a layer of the cheese mixture. Then top with a layer of spinach.
Continue each layer as above (meat sauce, lasagne, cheese, spinach)
You should end with a layer of the meat sauce.
Sprinkle the top with mozzarella cheese and a little basil and parsely.
Cook in crock pot on low for 4 hours. Enjoy with garlic bread & a glass of red wine!

    1. Thank you! It would definitely still be delicious without the meat, just add some seasonings to replace the flavor the sausage adds! xx
