lasagna

Add and stir:
 

  • 28 oz canned crushed tomatoes

  • 15 oz canned tomato sauce

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp dried basil

  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)

  • add more veggies if you want for 0 PointsPlus®.  Add mushrooms, diced tomatoes, spinach, or zucchini.
     

In a bowl, mix together:
 

  • 15 oz part-skim ricotta cheese (the original recipe called for 1 cup, but what am I going to do with the rest of the package?  So I just make a bigger batch of lasagna and use it all)

  • 2 cup part-skim mozzarella, shredded
     

In your slow cooker:
 

  • spoon in 1/3 of the sauce/beef mix

  • break 3 lasagna noodles (not cooked) in half and place on the sauce/beef mix

  • spread 1/2 the ricotta/mozzarella mix over the noodles

  • repeat and create another layer of sauce/beef, 3 lasagna noodles, and 1/2 ricotta/mozzarella mix

  • add the last 1/3 of the sauce/beef mix
     

Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  It also ok if you turn it on before you leave for work — just add more liquid to the sauce.  It will be a bit crispy on the edges but you might like that.
 

15 minutes before you’re ready to eat, turn off slow cooker and add:
 

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese like Parmesan, Romano
     

Cover and let cheese melt. Enjoy!
