Don't Miss These Hot Reynolds Coupons Plus a Crockpot Recipe!

If you haven't seen this yet, make sure you run over to to grab some wonderful coupons for your next shopping trip!!

 If you haven't tried the Slow Cooker Liners yet, you are seriously missing out.  I love these little plastic bags!!  I try to cook in the slow cooker at least once a week, and these really do make cleanup a snap!!  You just open in like a plastic shopping bag, put it inside your slow cooker, dump in everything and voila!!  When you are done, you pull it out, throw it in the trash, and you already have a clean crockpot, with no soaking or scrubbing.

And here is a recipe for you to try using these liners!!

1 lb. ground beef
29 oz can tomato sauce
8 oz pkg. lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese

1.) Spray the inside of the crock-pot with cooking spray                       
2.) Brown the ground beef
3.) Stir the tomato sauce in with the ground beef
4.) Spread 1/4 of the meat sauce on the bottom of the crock-pot
5.) Arrange 1/3 of the uncooked noodles over the sauce (I usually break them up so they fit better)
6.) Combine the cheeses in a bowl. Spoon 1/3 of the cheeses over the noodles.
7.) Repeat these layers twice
8.) Top with remaining sauce
9.) Cover and cook on low for 4hrs (I've started the crock-pot on high in the morning while I get ready for work and then put it on warm before I leave and it's perfect when I get home)
10.) Let the lasagna stand in the crock-pot with the lid off for at least 10 minutes 

* Variations
Add chopped onion and garlic to the ground beef in step 2

Use Italian sausage in place of ground beef or with ground beef

Add 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese to the cheese mixture. Replace cottage cheese with Ricotta.

Add 1/2 cup additional shredded mozzarella cheese to the top of lasagna 5 minutes before serving
