I have officially resurrected my crock pot. I love it. I adore it. I might marry it if I wasn't already hitched. I love that I can put pretty much anything in it, walk away, and have a delicious dinner waiting for me without doing the 4:30 what's-for-dinner scramble.
Here's the lasagna that I literally threw together for dinner tonight, using what I had on hand:
Lightly grease inside of crock pot. Set to lowest heat setting.
In a bowl, combine 1 egg and 16 oz. container of ricotta cheese. Add to the mixture:
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/3 c. water
a teaspoon of sea salt
a dash or two of pepper
two tablespoons of dried parsley
Thinly slice a zucchini. (I used a cheese slicer.) Or use any other veggies that you have on hand. Spinach and mushrooms also work particularly well.
Layer the following:
1/4 c. spaghetti sauce
dry lasagna noodles (break to fit)
Repeat layers until you run out of ingredients. Top with some grated parmesan and let it cook for a few hours, until the edges are brown and bubbly. Seriously amazing. I may never make an oven lasagna again.
Go get one (or several)
