Aunt Sue Ann’s Crock Pot Lasagna

There has been recent discussion about crock pot meals among some of my friends.  My family’s favorite “Crock Pot Mac and Cheese” came up, so I gave that recipe out a few more times.  The best part about that recipe is that you do NOT cook the noodles first.  You can put it together in moments, and then walk away, and 2 1/2 hours later, you have dinner!  Who doesn’t love that?

Lasagna is another favorite crock pot pasta dish in my family.  I have to give credit to my sister, Sue Ann, for this one.  I don’t know where she found the recipe, but it’s a great one.  And again, you DON’T have to cook the noodles first.  (Next time I make it, I will take a picture, and update this post…of course…I said that a couple of years ago with the mac and cheese one, and yep…still no pictures!)

  • 1-16 oz pkg. bow tie pasta (I have successfully used other shapes)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • parmesan cheese
  • mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 pound ground beef

Spray crock or line with crock pot liners (BEST INVENTION EVER!) Place layers in crock pot: Sauce, noodles, sour cream/cottage cheese mixture, mozzarella cheese.  Repeat layers til you are out of ingredients or the crock is full.  Cook on high 4 hours.

If the sauce seems super thick or things don’t seem to even out well, I will sometimes add a cup of boiling water, just to help the noodles cook. 

Another family favorite!  Thanks, Aunt SueAnn!
