This is yet another family favorite. It's so easy to make, I don't think I will ever return to making lasagna the "OG" way. I am all about keeping things simple.
So here ya go folks!
1 lb Italian Sausage
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce
1 Cup Water
1 15oz container of Ricotta Cheese
2 1/4 cups Italian Cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP parsley
6 lasagna noodles
Brown sausage in a large skillet, drain the fat, and add your spaghetti sauce and water. Let simmer for a few minutes.
In a small bowl mix together ricotta, egg, Italian and Parmesan cheeses, and parsley.
Now you going to start building your layers! First, add 1 cup of the meat mixture to the bottom of your crock pot. Cover with 3 lasagna noodles (you're going to have to break those bad boys up to fit), and then cover with 1/2 of the ricotta mixture. Next spoon 2 cups of the meat mixture on top, and cover with the remaining noodles. Top with remaining ricotta mixture, and spoon remaining meat mixture. Top with 1/4-1/2 cup Italian cheese. Cover with lid.
I usually cook mine on high for 2-3 hours, but you can easily adjust that to cook on low for 4-6. It is such a delicious easy meal!
