I think my pantry is reproducing with my fridge. I’ve been using food up left and right and it isn’t going ANYWHERE. I still have just as much as I did before! *I’m keeping an eye on you fridge and pantry!*

Slow Cooker Lasagna
In the Mix (Serves 2):
-3 lasagna noodles
-1 c. cottage cheese
-1/4 c. egg beaters (or 1 egg)
-1/2 c. pasta sauce
-1-2 String cheese sticks
*Mix together the cottage cheese, egg beaters, and any seasoning you might want in your cheese mixture. I used garlic, basil and a little S&P.
This is cooked in 2 qt. cooker so I had to be a little creative with how I built the lasagna. I broke the noodles up into squares so I could make my base. For each noodle layer I did the same thing. I only needed 3 noodles using this method.
Then the magic happens. Layer, layer, layer. Noodles, cheese mixture, sauce, spinach, a few strips of string cheese. Noodles, cheese mixture, sauce, spinach, a few strips of string cheese. Keep going until you run out!
Cook the lasagna on high for about 4 hours or low for 6-8.
The result…delicious, moist and fantastic lasagna without a bunch of leftovers sitting around to tempt you. *EAT ME ERIN!*
I paired mine with some green beans (still eating the extra that I bought from my attempt at green bean casserole for Christmas dinner).
Apparently while I was eating a certain pup got a little jealous that I was having my meal and he wasn’t. He knocked his food and water bowl right off his placemat during this temper tantrum. Naughty puppy.
