4 hrs 15 mins
4 hrs 30 mins
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 cup water
½ cup parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp parsley
1 Tbsp basil
Salt & pepper to taste
1Brown mince in large pan.
2Add garlic clove and saute for another minute.
3Drain fat from meat.
4Add crushed tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper.
5Add 1 cup water.
6In a bowl combine cottage cheese, egg, mozzarella cheese (keeping cup aside), parmesan and parsley.
7Grease your slow cooker.
8Pour 1 cup of meat sauce into slow cooker.
9Put a layer of pasta.
10Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top of pasta.
12Place one last row of noodles on top of cheese mixture
13Cover with remaining sauce.
14Cook on LOW for 4 hours
15Add remaining cheese.
16Cook for an additional 10-20 minutes so that the cheese melts.
1This was done in a 5.5L and would easily feed a family of 4 with nothing else as a side.
2I made a double meat mixture and froze half.
