Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 cup diced green pepper
  • 2 cups diced zucchini
  • 24 oz tomato sauce
  • 14 oz tomato paste
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 8 ounce lasagna noodles uncooked
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or 6 ounces sliced mozzarella
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, brown meat over medium-high heat until it is golden brown, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Beef will not be cooked completely, but it will finish cooking in the oven. Drain off excess fat but leave meat in the pan.
  2. Sprinkle the ground beef with spices and cook one minute. Then add vegetables and cook another minute or two.
  3. Add tomato sauce and tomato paste. Turn heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. In another bowl, combine cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, and the egg. Stir well.
  5. Spray a 5-quart slow cooker insert with cooking spray. Make layers in the insert in this order: tomato sauce, 2 layers of noodles, cheese mixture, then repeat, ending with sauce.
  6. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 3 hours. Add the final layer of mozzarella and continue to cook 1 more hour.
Recipe Notes

This homemade tomato sauce is delicious and allows you to control what goes into your dish (i.e., omit green pepper or add grated carrot, etc.) The above mixture will make about 8 cups and you may not need quite all of it for this dish – freeze any leftovers for later use. If you do not want to create a homemade sauce, you can use 6 cups (64 ounces) of a prepared sauce.
