Instructions Checklist

  • Cook mixture in slow cooker on Low for 2 hours.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Spread a thin layer of the sauce from the meat mixture into the bottom of a baking dish. Layer about 1/3 of the noodles into the bottom of the dish; top with about 1 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, 2/3 cup cottage cheese, 3 slices white American cheese, and 4 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese. Spread about 1/3 of the meat mixture over the cheese layer. Repeat layers twice more.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese melts throughout the lasagna, about 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before cutting to serve.

I have made this recipe twice now. I used ricotta rather than cottage cheese but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. My husband loved it and I took it to church and 2 people asked for the recipe. This is even better as leftovers and it's great to assemble the night before and bake the next day. Read More

Iv'e made this recipe 3 times. First time I followed the recipe to the t the salami was a bit over powering. The second time around i left the salami out it was way better. I also added chopped sweet peppers to the sauce. By the third try I've decided to use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. Overall a great recipe. (my substitutions are based on my hubby's preference). Read More
