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!

        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.

    Thanks for letting me know! This recipe is going to be great for our busy days! I used to make 2 9X13 pans of this when all 4 children were home yet. Now I am down to the last 2 and needed a new recipe for a smaller crowd lol

    I would also recommend using Ricotta instead of cottage cheese…cost about the same and gives it a wonderful taste, I also sprinkle a little bit of black pepper in with the Ricotta. It’s very yummy either way!!!!

    What are the whole carrots and whole celery for? Its not on the recipe but it is on the breakdown of ingredients? I am so happy somebody posted a link to this on social media; it is going to be a tight month for us.

      Hi Kimber – The celery and carrots are just for a vegetable on the side. You don’t actually need them to make the lasagna. Hope that helps!
