Are you looking for a super easy recipe?  Try this crockpot lasagna recipe and I promise you won't be disappointed!

Have you ever wanted to find a super simple lasagna recipe? Here is our favorite crockpot lasagna recipe.  This uses Cottage cheese instead of Ricotta cheese which makes it a healthier option.  You cannot tell the difference once it is cooked, so don’t get grossed out first!

We used Farfalle Noodles in place of Lasagna Noodles because they were less money.  This recipe turns out perfect every time, so we hope you enjoy it!

        Spread a round of pizza dough with a little bit of melted butter with minced garlic (only a couple of tablespoons of butter and garlic to taste) and then top with a small container of cottage cheese. Sprinkle on some basil or oregano. Top with mozzarella and bake.

        I have an allergy to many types of commercially canned foods, so I sometimes have to forgo the traditional tomato based pizza (unless I make my own sauce) and this white pizza is perfect.

    How do you make the lasagna for in the freezer bag and then put it into the crockpot?

    I would just brown the meat ahead of time and freeze. Everything else wouldn’t take long to layer in the crockpot.
