Crockpot Lasagna

1 lb ground chuck (or regular ground beef)
3 italian sausages (I use hot)
1 large onion
2 garlic cloves
8 oz lasagna noodles (no need to cook noodles before assembling)
1 lb, 10 oz jar spaghetti sauce (I use chuncky garden style)
1 lb ricotta cheese
1 lb shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan or roman cheese (not grated)
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

Cook italian sausages as directed and set aside to cool. Brown ground chuck, onion and garlic in a small amount of oil. While beef is cooking, slice sausages. When beef is almost done add sausages back to pan - cook until beef is no longer pink. Drain and return to pan, add spaghetti sauce and cook until warm.

In medium bowl mix ricotta cheese, milk and egg until smooth. Add mozzarella and parmesan and mix well.

Grease bottom and sides of crockpot. Place 1/4 of sauce mix in bottom of crockpot. Place a layer of noodles next (break if necessary to fit). Place 1/3 of the cheese mixture on top of noodles. Repeat this two times ending with meat sauce.

Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or until noodles are tender.

Thanks for another great recipe Q99
