Slow Cooking Thursday - August 14, 2008

I found this great recipe this week and I can't wait to try it! For more slow cooker recipes visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.
4 pounds ground chuck
4 (28oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
32 lasagna noodles
3 (15oz.) cottage cheese
4 t. dried Italian seasoning
11/3 cups water
4 (4oz.) cans of mushrooms
6 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Cook beef and Italian seasoning in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles; drain. Combine spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, seasoned meat and water in bowl. Layer thinly in bottom of lightly greased 5-quart electric slow cooker: 4 uncooked lasagna noodles, sauce mixture, cottage cheese & mozzarella cheese. Repeat for each layer (approx 8 total layers). Cover & cook on high setting for 1 hour; reduce heat & cook on low setting for 5 hours. Can do ahead and store in fridge!! Yields 16 Servings (one FULL 5 quart Crock Pot!!!)
This is a rather large recipe for me. I think I am going to cut it down by 4 and see what happens. I'll let you know.
