Day 69: Violette's Lasagna
8 lasagna noodles, uncooked
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp italian seasoning
28 oz jar spaghetti sauce
1/3 cup water
4 oz sliced mushrooms
15 oz ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1. Break noodles. Place half in bottom of greased slow cooker.
2. Brown ground beef in saucepan. Drain. Stir in italian seasoning. Spread half over noodles in slow cooker.
3. Layer half of sauce and water, half of mushrooms, half of ricotta cheese, and half of mozzarella cheese over beef. Repeat layers.
4. Cover. Cook on low 5 hours.
(This recipe is better than the other lasagna recipe than I tried. Although if I ever make this again I'll use cottage cheese over the ricotta. Still there seemed to be something missing. It wasn't as flavorful as I would have liked. 3 stars)
