Lasagna in the Crockpot ~Old Farmhouse Style

Old Farmhouse Lasagna
1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 lb. Italian sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (24 oz.) prepared spaghetti sauce
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
fresh oregano & basil or 1/2 tsp. each of dried

15 oz. ricotta cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 sprigs fresh parsley
1 egg

6 - 8 lasagna noodles
8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese or Italian blend

In a medium skillet, brown the beef or turkey, 
 Italian sausage, onion. and garlic.
Drain any grease that has accumulated in the pan.
Add the sauces and herbs.

Simmer until warm. 

Stir together the Ricotta, parmesan cheese, 
egg, and fresh parsley.

Spoon a layer of meat sauce into the bottom of your crockpot.
Add a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles, breaking them to fit.
(this will be our secret, as no one will see the broken noodles)

Spread a portion of the ricotta mixture on the noodles,
and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Repeat the layers.
Make sure you end with sauce and cheese.

Cook on low for 4 hours.

Everyone's crockpot is different.
Adjust your cooking time and amount of liquid used
according to your personal preference.
