Today I am featuring another real life friend of mine! (see, I do have some real life friends! ha ha). For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile, you already know my dear friend, Lisa. She is everything a friend should be and more! I am so lucky to have her in my life! And it doesn't hurt that she also has an adorable boy, and a sweet hubby as well. Lisa is a wonderful mom, a great wife, and a fabulous friend!
Unfortunately, Lisa doesn't write a blog (come on Lisa, jump on the blogging bandwagon!), so I don't have a new blog to share with you, but I do have a yummy recipe! She made this dish for for us, and it was the PERFECT football Sunday food!1 lb fully cooked ground beef (or ground turkey)
Crock Pot Lasagna
Crock Pot Lasagna
1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce
3/4 cup water
1/2 box uncooked lasagna noodles
16 oz ricotta cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
Italian seasoning to taste
Fresh baby spinach
Brown your meat and add the marinara sauce and the water. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes. In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, and Italian seasoning and mix well.
In the crock pot, lay down uncooked noodles (break if necessary to fit in the crock pot). Then add a layer of the cheese mix, a layer of spinach, and then a layer of the meat sauce. Continue with these layers until you have reached the top of the crock pot. Sprinkle some more mozzarella cheese on top. Cook on low 4-5 hours or until the noodles are soft and cooked thoroughly.

This is seriously the easiest way to make lasagna, and it tastes just as good as oven-made lasagna. You could definitely add different veggies to this recipe as well. I made this the other day and it was delicious! We had a lot of left overs too, which is always a good thing.
Thank you so much Lisa! This is definitely a tasty recipe...(and thanks for being such an awesome person in my life!)
