I have a couple of wonderful things to share with you today.
GoodBite Weeknight Meals: Delicious Made Easy has just been released and is available for purchase. This is a cookbook created by food blogger contributors to Goodbite.com (including me!) and photographed by the very talented Matt Armendariz. Today I’m sharing a Slow Cooker Lasagna recipe from the cookbook that has only 5 ingredients. Click the box below for a quick How-To video:
If you’re a busy person with little time for dinner, this cookbook is one to have at hand. You’ll find 140 recipes for quick and delicious family dinners… things like Cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu & Rice Casserole, Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas, Blueberry Pulled Pork, Fast Fish Tacos, One Pot Macaroni & Cheese, Sweet Gingery Tofu, and Slow Cooker Jambalaya.
This dinner recipe was a big hit in my house. And I’m so happy to have another slow-cooker recipe that I can use for busy days where I don’t have time to cook. How cool is it that a slow cooker can make lasagna for you? Yes. Very cool, indeed!
Slow Cooker Lasagna
Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 6 hrs
There is nothing like coming home at the end of a long day and having dinner ready to put on the table!

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Two 26-ounce jars marinara sauce
2 pounds lean ground beef, cooked

1. Place the cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
2. Add a thin layer of pasta sauce to the bottom of a slow cooker. Add a thin layer of the cooked ground beef and a layer of the noodles, breaking the noodles to make them fit. Top the noodle layer with a layer of the cheese mixture. Repeat until all of the ingredients are used, ending with a layer of sauce. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Serve hot.
