  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion chopped
  • ½ cup green pepper chopped
  • 3 cans tomato sauce 15oz each
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 container ricotta cheese 15oz
  • 1 cup Parmesan & Romano cheese grated
  • 15 lasagna noodles uncooked
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and cook the peppers and onions until tender.
  • Add the ground beef, season with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic.
  • Drain off excess grease.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese with the grated and ricotta cheeses. Mix until well combined.
  • The remaining mozzarella cheese will be for the top of the lasagna just before serving so place that back in the refrigerator.
  • Spoon a fourth of the meat sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Break 5 noodles and place them on top.
  • Spread half the cheese mixture on top of the noodles. Repeat the layers, ending with sauce on the top.
  • Set the slow cooker to low, cover and cooker for 4-6 hours until the noodles are tender.
  • About 10 minutes before serving, top with remaining mozzarella cheese, cover and let stand until the cheese is melted.



Serve with extra parm and a side of Homemade Italian Meatballs.
