Crockpot Lasagna

1lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
29 oz. can tomato sauce
1 c. water
6 oz. can tomato paste
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
8 oz. package lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 c.(16oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2c. (12oz) small curd cottage cheese
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Cook beef, onion, and garlic together in a pan until browned. Drain off excess liquid.  Stir in Tomato sauce, water, paste, salt, and oregano. Mix well.  Spread 1/4 of meat sauce in an un-greased crock pot. Arrange 1/3 of noodles over the sauce.  Combine the cheeses. Spoon 1/3 of mixture over noodles. Repeat the layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce.  Cover. Cook on low for 4-5 hours.

Some Changes I made:
Ground turkey instead of beef
Handful of dried minced onion instead of one whole onion
2 heaping tablespoons minced garlic (the wet kind you get in the produce department)
Shook oregano over mixture generously…we like food with more bite

We are serving this with bruschetta and salad. I’ve sampled it to make sure it wasn’t poisonous and it’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!! Total prep time less than 30 minutes.  This recipe came from the Facebook Group The Crock Pot Recipe Exchange.
