Crockpot Lasagna

I learned how to make lasagna during high school, it was actually my sophomore year in Mrs. Wagner’s culinary class. Her class was the very first time I was taught in a culinary setting and it made my desire to learn and love cooking even greater. Although it was only for one school year with her, Mrs. Wagner was a marvelous mentor…patient, caring and was great in using different tools to engage with students in preparing and cooking delicious food.
Since high school…many moons ago, I think I’ve only made lasagna only a handful of times and each time I never strayed away from the one ingredient she showed us that was surprising but made a difference…cottage cheese. This of course isn’t the exact recipe because her’s was the classic bake in the oven lasagna, but I kept most of the ingredients and incorporated it into making a crock-pot lasagna!
This crock-pot recipe is a perfect and easy weekend dinner…set it up early, run your errands then come home to a delicious meal.

Thank you Mrs. Wagner 😊

This recipe is so simple, you can consider it being a one of those recipes where you can just dump it and forget it. I’ve seen and tasted plenty of chicken tortilla soups that have extra ingredients like black beans…personally I’m not a fan. Tomatoes, chilies and corn are plenty enough. But feel free to add any extra veggies! I’m sure it will come out as delicious either way!
