Crockpot Lasagna

This easy Italian style crockpot lasagna features both ground beef and crumbled Italian sausage. Our recipe is saucy with a blend of three cheeses stuffed between layers of tender pasta noodles bathed in meat sauce. This slow cooker version is just as delicious as a traditional recipe, but so much easier when it’s made from scratch all in the bowl of your slow cooker.

White Pizza Grilled Cheese

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp dried
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 8 oz mozzarella thinly sliced
  • 8 slices white or wheat bread
  • butter softened

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta, olive oil, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Refrigerate for at least an hour (or up to 24 hours) to allow the flavors to develop.
  • Lay down the bread slices and, using a butter knife, spread the ricotta mixture evenly on each piece. The ricotta mixture should coat the insides of both pieces of bread.
  • Lay the mozzarella slices evenly on every other piece of bread (one side of each sandwich). Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and close the sandwiches by place both cheesy insides together.
  • Butter both sides of the ‘outside’ of the sandwich generously.
  • In a large frying pan over medium-low heat, cook the sandwiches, flipping often, until they’re golden-brown on the outside and the cheese is melted inside, about 10 minutes.
  • Serve.
