Cheesy Lasagna

Ingredients

Heat the pan to medium. Add ground beef and sausage. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink.

Add chopped onions, minced garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the onion becomes translucent. Transfer the contents to a strainer and drain the grease. Then return the meat and onions to the pan (besure to leave the heat off).

Add Italian seasoning, salt, pepper to the pan and mix – set aside.

Add pasta sauce.

In a medium sized bowl: combine ricotta cheese, ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, fresh chopped parsley and mix well – set aside.

Pour ½ cup pasta sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place 3 lasagna noodles atop the sauce; break the noodles to fit into the slow cooker (if needed).

Spread ¼ of the meat sauce on top of the noodles.

Then layer with 3 heaping spoon fulls of the ricotta mix.

Sprinkle ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over the ricotta mix. Repeat the above steps 3 more times to complete the Lasagna layers.

The upper most layers should consist of noodles, meat sauce, 1 cup of mozzarella and 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese for the topping. Place the lid on. Cook on low for 4 hours. Remove the lid.

Place fresh chopped parsley on top of the cheese.

Optional: sprinkle more mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese on top of the fresh hot lasagna. Place the lid back on. Turn the knob to high and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes for an extra cheesy topping.

Serve and enjoy!
