Crock Pot Lasagna

I have to admit I was skeptical that this would turn out well. I mean, lasagna in a crock pot? Who knew? Well, whoever came up with this recipe knew. All it takes is a little preparation in the morning, and you have a terrific lasagna waiting for you when you get home.

Crock Pot Lasagna

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced (or 2 teaspoons garlic)
1 lb. jar spaghetti sauce
8 ounces fresh (no boil) lasagna sheets
1 lb mozzarella cheese
2 oz Parmesan cheese
1/4 c milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp oregano
salt & pepper to taste

Preparation:

Fry beef, onion, and garlic in pan until lightly browned. Pour off any excess oil. Add spaghetti sauce and heat through. Combine milk, egg, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Place about 1/4 meat mixture into the crock pot and spread evenly. Top with a layer of lasagna sheets, cut to size. Top this with 1/3 cheese sauce. Repeat layers. Cook on low for four to six hours.
