Crock Pot Lasagna, Mama Approved

A month or so ago we had an Italian themed meal after church and I wanted to try crock pot lasagna. It’s everything I love, it’s easy, cooks without me standing over it, and boom it’s done without much fuss.

I tried to find the recipe of a friend that I KNEW was good, but couldn’t find it. So I was forced to pull one from the internet & just pray it would work. And thankfully IT DID. I was mostly concerned whether the noodles would be cooked right and if I should buy the no-bake kind.

This recipe called for regular noodles and despite my reservations they turned out just right. I also struggled to find a recipe that didn’t require me to make my own pasta sauce. While I think it would be awesome to do, I personally felt the “ain’t nobody got time for that!” phrase circling in my head. One day I will make my own, but that day wasn’t it. I am open to suggestions for a good homemade pasta sauce though – leave it in the comments if you have a good one. 😊

I hope this recipe works well for your family also.

P.S. I doubled this recipe but not all noodles would fit, it was still great!


  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • Lasagna noodles
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Brown ground beef and drain. Spoon 1 C. spaghetti sauce in bottom of 4 quart crock pot. Mix remaining sauce with beef. Place 2 uncooked lasagna noodles on sauce in crock pot. Spread 1/3 meat mixture on top of noodles. Spread 3/4 C. cottage cheese over meat. Sprinkle 1/2 C. mozzarella cheese over cottage cheese. Add another layer of uncooked noodles, 1/3 meat mixture, the remaining cottage cheese and 1/2 C. mozzarella cheese. Place another layer of uncooked noodles, meat mixture, and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top. Cook on low for 4 hours. 

If cooked much longer, it gets a bit well done.
