Good evening foodie friends,
Just gonna quick post this yummy new crock pot recipe, so easy and so delicious! Perfect for a chilly winter night. Complete and total comfort food, made guilt-free!
Skinny Crock Pot Lasagna
Lasagna noodles-any type, uncooked
1 bag skim mozzarella cheese (2 cups)
1 16 ou container low-fat cottage cheese
1 package frozen chopped spinach, squeeze excess water out
1 box sliced mushrooms
1 pound ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
few cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
2 jars of your favorite marinara, i used one that was a Spinach Marinara and one that was a Four Cheese type
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 cup grated parmesan
few tablespoons chopped parsley
I used my large, oval-shaped crock pot because the noodles fit nicely.
First, brown the ground turkey, mushrooms, onion, garlic in my crock pot insert (it’s for the stove too) and added the salt. Remove the mixture and simply wipe clean.
Mix the paste and sauces together in one bowl,
In another bowl, mix the cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, spinach and parsley.
Begin by putting a thick later of sauce down in the bottom, cover with one layer of noodles, break some to have it fit evenly. The, a layer of cheese mixture, sprinkle with mozzarella, then the meat mixture. Repeat the layering process. I ended up with three layers of noodles. I finished with mozzarella cheese on top. Sprinkle some fresh basil on each layer.
Cook on low setting 5-7 hours, I had to hurry up the process and did a few hours on high and ended with a couple on low, this worked fine too :)
