One of the books I purchased is 101 Slow-Cooker Recipes, and on page 47, there is a recipe for Best Ever Lasagna! Looks yummy so let's git'er dun!
First, I have to get my Hunk of Meat, which was in the freezer all packaged nicely and raised right out in our pasture! The recipe calls for one pound of ground beef, but we like our beef, so two is much better!
This is my wonderful Pampered Chef steamer that cooks
my two pounds of ground beef in 5 minutes!
Just put the meat in the pot, kind of break it apart, and add about a 1/3 cup of water or so.
Wish I had that cool Pampered Chef chopper thingy my friend Leah at Beyer Beware is always talking about!
HINT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
Pst.! The bright white behind this picture is the bottom of my kitchen sink!
Woooo! Yea Me!
Poof! In five minutes it is cooked, AND the fat is separated from the meat!
That green in there is the reflection of my still-living lima bean plants!
Tune in tomorrow for an update on them!
See the shine from my sink?
Put the lid back on, and it's a very easy trick to drain the water and fat out of the meat.
It's even easier if you are NOT trying to pour and take a picture at the same time!
Gonna have to shine my sink after this!
Here are the rest of the ingredients!
First layer in the pot sprayed with cooking oil: Noodles
Next add half of the hamburger.
Then half the sauce (I used more than the recipe called for because I added more meat!)
Half of the mushrooms.
Half of the Ricotta cheese
( I mixed it up a bit with the sauce)
Half of the Mozzarella cheese
Now go back and review the last six pictures so that you have two layers!
I added a top layer of noodles before adding the last half of the mozzarella cheese.
This recipe calls for 1/3 cup water, but it doesn't say where/when to add it,
so I poured it over the whole thing before putting on the lid.
Cover and cook on low for five hours
The finished product!
Actually this is Tall Guy's second helping!
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 t. Italian seasoning
8 Lasagna noodles (or how ever many it takes to cover your pot twice)
28 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce (I used a bit more than that)
1/3 cup water
4 oz. can of mushrooms
15 oz. container of ricotta cheese
8 oz. pkg. of mozzarella cheese
Garnish with Parmesan cheese
Toss a salad together, and you have a great meal waiting on you when you get home! Enjoy!
