Works For Me Wednesday (LATE), TTT, and *NEW* Tasty Thursday....

(Go see Rocks In My Dryer for more!)

I have a hard time coming up with what to make for dinner because I like to make really yummy things SO...I have made a calander for the month. Every Monday is Chicken Night, Tuesday is Fish Night, Wednesday Is Leftovers, Thursday is Random, Friday is Steak Night, Saturday is Pasta and Sunday is Leftovers again.

Then I just look for recipes to plug in each night and I shop for 2 days at a time...I figure them out 1 week at a time.

WORKS FOR ME! and it helps me just have a plan so I don't wonder WHAT'S FOR DINNER!!!

Ultimate Crock Pot Lasagna
Rich, explosive tomato flavors and garlic and onion-rich ground beef will turn your crock pot into a lasagna factory.

1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
1 can (29 ounce) tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 can( 6 ounce) tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 pack (8 ounce) no cook lasagna noodles
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 and 1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Brown in skillet: beef, onion, garlic. Drain.

Add tomato sauce, water, paste, salt, and oregano and mix well. Spread 1/4 sauce in ungreased 5 quart cooker, arrange noodles (break when needed), combine cheeses and spoon 1/3 over noodles, repeat layers twice, top with remaining sauce. Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours or until noodles are tender.

Enjoy your crock pot lasagna.

I have to admit...I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese...this one was a HUGE hit with my family.
