Crockpot Lasagne Recipe

Most of my favorite recipes are either family favorites, or come from BA Tortuga. I got this one from BA well over 10 years ago now and it's my favorite lasagne ever.

Crockpot Lasagne

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
29-oz. can tomato sauce
1 c. water
6-oz. tomato paste
2 t. salt
2 t. oregano
8 oz pkg lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 c. small-curd cottage cheese
1/2 c. grate parmesan

Cook beef, onion and garlic until browned. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, water, paste, salt and oregano. Mix. Mix your cheese and break your lasagna noodles up a bit. Layer sauce/noodles/cheese, beginning and ending with the sauce.

Cook on low 5-6 hours. 

That's the basic recipe and it is yummy. Over the years I've done a little doctoring. My new crockpot is slightly bigger than the old one and works best if I go about 1.5 times in the recipe. Although I halve the salt - only putting in 1t for the bigger recipe, and I only put in the 2t oregano. I add another 1-2 of 'italian spices'. I also make sure I put two layers of noodles in each noodle layer because otherwise there aren't enough noodles (and this from someone who thinks most lasagne's are too noodle-heavy.)

It is extremely yummy and my favorite. I also find it a little less lengthy to put together.
