  • 1lb ground mince (452gms) I just used 500gms
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 24 oz can crushed tomatoes (680gms)
  • 12 oz of cottage cheese (340gms)
  • 12 oz Farfalle noodles (bowtie) (340gms) can use any pasta or lasagne sheets
  • 8 oz shredded mozzarella
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp parsley
  • 1 Tbsp basil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Brown mince in large pan.
  • Add garlic clove and saute for another minute.
  • Drain fat from meat.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper.
  • Add 1 cup water.
  • In a bowl combine cottage cheese, egg, mozzarella cheese (keeping cup aside), parmesan and parsley.
  • Grease your slow cooker.
  • Pour 1 cup of meat sauce into slow cooker.
  • Put a layer of pasta.
  • Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top of pasta.
  • Repeat layering
  • Place one last row of noodles on top of cheese mixture
  • Cover with remaining sauce.
  • Cook on LOW for 4 hours
  • Add remaining cheese.
  • Cook for an additional 10-20 minutes so that the cheese melts.


  • This was done in a 5.5L and would easily feed a family of 4 with nothing else as a side.
  • I made a double meat mixture and froze half.
