A Facebook friend of mine shared a recipe for crockpot lasagna with me a couple of weeks ago and it has been on my "to make list". I've been on a mission to clean out our freezer which usually results in a crockpot meal and lasagna came to mind. Unfortunately I didn't have all the ingredients for the dish (and I was too lazy to drive 1 mile to the grocery store) so I created my own little concoction that I will definitely be making again!
1 lb ground meat
2 cups pasta sauce (I used a homemade sauce I had in the freezer that Jon made a couple weeks ago)
1 10oz package of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 15oz jar of ricotta cheese
2 cups chopped tomatoes
3 cups uncooked pasta
1/2 cup water
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Super easy...add all the ingredients into the crockpot
2. Cook on high for 4 hours, stirring every hour
Jon IM'ed me the next morning at work saying "guess what I had for breakfast?". Now my husband is known for eating to most random assortment of foods together...lunch may be a can of refried beans (out of the can, not heated), peanut butter toast and a protein shake. He was excited to tell me he was chowing down on some "unconventional lasagna for an unconventional breakfast". I love that he will eat anything!
Do you ever "make up" recipes and they turn out to be spectacular?? I seem to be doing that a lot lately! Please share!
