Goode & Gooseberry Project: Slow-Cooker Lasagna

The other day Puddie told me he wanted to invite some work buddies over for dinner... so, I thought that was a perfect time to pull another recipe from my Goode & Gooseberry Project!

I chose Crockpot Lasagna after seeing how my bloggy pal Lana's recent Gooseberry Patch Best Ever Lasagna turned out (different recipe--check it out!) and thought it would be perfect for Puddie's hungry crew.

So, I started out with making some seasoned ground beef in my new favorite kitchen uber-tool, my Micro-cooker!

I chopped it up into finer crumbles with my mix 'n chop and then I got down to business makin' my meat sauce.

I added the sauce, paste and water

The mushrooms... oh how I heart mushrooms! 

When my college roommate and I were in high school, we would always order the best mushroom pizzas from the local pizza place and eat a whole one between us. Nothing beat a mushroom pizza from Daves!

Now only one person loves them more than me. Aunt Lou just adores mushrooms...don't you Lou???
I might just be fibbin'... ;)

Now ya add some oregano, 1 T to be exact... and salt to taste

Now mix 'er up and set aside.

Now grab your cheeses... 2 Cups Mozzarella

12 oz. Cottage Cheese

1/2 Cup Parm... Now, I would have preferred to grate my own, but the store was out... so I got shredded. I love fresh parm... but the powdered stuff... not so much...just sayin'

Now stir it all up

Now put a layer of your meat sauce on the bottom of your crock pot.

Grumble because yet again you accidentally grabbed the "oven ready" lasagna instead of just regular. I much prefer regular noodles...just sayin'

Put a layer of noodles down anyhow ;)

Put a layer of cheese and then realize you forgot to take a picture ;) Now repeat layers 2 more times and end with sauce on top!

Cook on low for 5 hrs...

Now serve up to a hungry crew of rail roaders ;)
