Crock Pot Lasagna!!

I'm sitting here typing this with the smell of lasagna wafting through the house. And all I can think is... I still have hours before it's going to be ready. YUM and torture all rolled into one giant crockpot. I got this recipe from a coupon book from Proctor and Gamble a few years ago. Who would have thought that such a great recipe would come from a free coupon book. But hey, I got a great dinner recipe, and great coupons out of the deal. So I'll take it. Plus it's super easy to put together.

Crock Pot Lasagna: makes 6 servings
WW pts: 8 pts.

Cooking Spray (PAM)
1 lb ground lean turkey (or beef), cooked and drained
1 28 ounce can tomato sauce (you can use a jar of spaghetti sauce if you want instead of tomatoes)
2- 15 ounce can diced tomatoes no salt added
1/2 box no-boil lasagna noodles, gently broken in half
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 cup fat free ricotta cheese (or ff cottage cheese)
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/2 cup onion, diced
2 cups Mozzarella
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese

Grease the inside of the crock pot with the PAM. Combine beef, sauce, garlic, spices and onion in a medium size bowl and mix well. Then combine the ricotta and mozzarella in a small bowl, stirring to combine well.

In the crock pot, layer sauce, noodles, then ricotta mixture, repeating. Your top layer should end up sauce. I think we had 2 full layers, then topped with sauce. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. then serve.
