Crock Pot Lasagna – Valentine’s Day Dinner
Next Sunday is Valentine’s Day and I was trying to come up with a recipe that both hubby and I would enjoy but didn’t want to spend all day in the kitchen.
Having seen this recipe online, I decided to give it a try with a twist and trust me it tasted better than it looked! Hubby wasn’t too sure about using uncooked lasagna noodles in the Crock Pot, but I assured him that they would be done without having to boil them first.
2 Jars Marinara Sauce
Lasagna Noodles (uncooked)
2 packages Turkey Meatballs
1 Medium Red Onion chopped
1 Container of Ricotta Cheese
1/2 Package Mozzerella Cheese
1 Package frozen Spinach
1 Container fresh mushrooms (washed thoroughly)
Coat Crock Pot with Cooking Spray
Pour a small amount of Marinara sauce onto the bottom of the Crock Pot
Break noodles in half and lay a few on top of the Marinara Sauce
Spread a little Ricotta Cheese on top of noodles
Add a few meatballs, onions, mushrooms and spinach
Top with a little more Marinara Sauce
Continue another layer of ingredients until Crock Pot is full
Pour remaining Marinara Sauce over all ingredients and top with slices of Mozzarella Cheese. Cover and slow cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours depending on the model of your Crock Pot.
Top with Crushed Red Peppers to spice it up a bit then pour yourself a glass of wine and relax until dinner time!
Do you have a special recipe for Valentine’s Day or will you and your sweetie be heading out to dinner?
