Weekly Recipe

I can not take credit for this yummy recipe, my friend gave it to me and I am planning on trying it out tomorrow.  But for those who love using a crock pot and love pasta then this one is for you!

Crock pot Lasagna
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound of your favorite sausage
2 tablespoons cooking oil or olive oil
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 jars (25-28oz) of your favorite spaghetti sauce
8-12 lasagna noodles cooked “al dente” (rinse with cold water for handling)
1 box sliced fresh mushrooms
2 eggs
1 15 oz carton ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Sauté mushrooms in cooking oil (optional, add ½ cup red wine to sauté). Add sausage, ground beef, and Italian seasoning to sautéed mushrooms and brown all. Drain if necessary.

In separate bowl, mix 2 cups mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, and eggs.
Place one ladle of spaghetti sauce in bottom of lightly greased Crockpot.
Add one layer of noodles, followed by a layer of the meat mixture, sauce, and the cheese mixture. Repeat.
Top with remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
