Crockin' Lasagna

Ingredients: 2 lbs. fully cooked ground hamburger meat 2 jars favorite marinara sauce (15oz) 1 box uncooked lasagna noodles 2 lb. tub ricotta cheese 1 cup mozzarella cheese 1 egg, beaten Italian seasoning to taste Fresh baby spinach
Directions: Brown hamburger meat and add marinara sauce. Let simmer for 20 minutes. (You can also make your own marinara sauce). While simmering, in a bowl combine your ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and egg, Italian seasoning to taste and mix well. Spray the crock with cooking spray, and start your layers of 1) meat sauce 2) uncooked lasagna noodles 3) ricotta cheese mixture 4) spinach. Repeat layers one more time. Top with remaining meat sauce and cheese. Cook on low for three hours, any longer will overcook the noodles! To cut in half, use a smaller crock pot and check to see if it's done after 2 1/2 hours instead of 3 and make sure your pot is at least half to 3/4 full for best results. If you have any leftovers, this freezer really well
