Crockpot Lasagna was an easy hit

I sort of used the recipe from Ellen's Kitchen -- as much as i use any recipe ;)

I used a box of no-boil noodles, because that's what i had. actually we've had them for two years and i'm so glad they're gone now.

and get this -- i pureed some frozen spinach & added it to the sauce! I always prefer veggie lasagna, but the kids abhor spinach in all forms. As i type, my 12yo son is polishing off the remnants and saying it's some gooooood lasagna! LOL And i was worried he'd actually notice, because he really honestly does not like the taste of it; i was sure he'd taste it, or at least ask why the sauce was so dark. LA LA LA LA LA!!

i also made one for dh's truck, but with frozen already-cooked italian sausage meatballs in the middle, kinda like a noodle sandwich i guess? another item that had been sitting around forever and unlikely to ever be used on purpose.

the other really cool thing is that i used that breakstone cottage cheese that nobody will eat because it's got a funky texture! i'm gonna use the rest in spaghetti pie.
