WHILE YOU’RE AWAY LASAGNA

Goodness, it’s been weeks since I posted a recipe–so unlike me. Not that my guys haven’t eaten well, it’s just that I’ve been so busy with the release of LADY AT ARMS that I haven’t had time to translate my scribbled and marked up recipes into legible type. However, during a gluttonous North & South viewing over the weekend (the Richard Armitage/Daniela Denby-Ashe one, of course), I tackled the pile of recipes–in between the really, really good (read: romantic) scenes. So here goes: Who doesn’t like lasagna? Who doesn’t like easy? This recipe cooks all day while you’re away and, despite the lack of real effort, is incredibly yum. Just toss together a salad after you come through the door and it’s dine time! Okay, that was short. But sweet 🙂

1-16 oz container cottage cheese

2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

1-26 oz jar pasta sauce (I used Bertolli’s Marinara)

1-1/4 lb cooked ground beef (chicken and turkey good, too)

1-8 oz pkg lasagna noodles

4 thick slices fresh mozzarella

1 tbsp chopped parsley

1) Set slow cooker on low heat (Note: My slow cooker is one of the smaller ones that best serves 4 people)

2) In medium bowl, mix cottage and mozzarella cheeses

3) Layer lasagna ingredients in slow cooker as follows: pasta sauce, cooked ground beef, noodles, cheese mixture (you should have 4-5 layers when you’re done); cook on low 6-8 hours; top with mozzarella slices, scatter parsley over top, and cook additional 15 minutes (while you’re tossing together that salad); enjoy!

Servings: 4-6

    I’ve never tried slow cooker lasagna – but I will now!! Wow- how great is it to come in from work and dinner is ready for everyone including yourself – win/win!! And by the way – – I finished “Lady at Arms” last week and that was also a win/win!! LOVED IT!!! I am patiently (well, sort of) waiting for “The Longing” – hurry up spring!!

    • Hello, dear Barefoot Believer,
      I really think you’ll like this recipe, especially if you add your own pizzazz to it. I did receive your email about Lady At Arms and I’m partway through composing a reply–not just something to be whipped out considering the time you put into providing me with such marvelous feedback and inspiring words. Soon come 🙂 Have a wonderful evening!
