Pizza Lasagna

Crockpot lasagna is a great way to make lasagna easy and fast.  We love it that way, and although it doesn't make nice little squares like you get when you bake it, it is still delicious.  I found the original recipe I started from here, but we like it better how I make it now.  This is a perfect 10 from everyone!

Crockpot Pizza Lasagna

6 ready to bake lasagna noodles
12 oz Italian sausage
24 turkey pepperoni slices
24 oz marinara sauce (or a little more)
2 T water
Italian seasoning, Garlic Salt, Onion Powder, other spices to taste
3 c Mozzarella cheese
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
15 oz ricotta cheese
2 T prepared pesto

Grease slow cooker.  Mix ricotta with pesto.  Place 2 lasagna noodles in bottom of slow cooker (break to fit).  Brown the sausage and add spices to taste.  Pour half  of the sausage over the noodles.  Place half of the pepperoni slices over the sausage.  Cover with 1 c of sauce, 1 T of water, and 1/2 of ricotta, then top with 1 c mozzarella cheese.  Repeat this, then top with the last 2 noodles, 1 c of sauce and 1 c of mozzarella cheese and 1/2 c of parmesan cheese.  Cook on low for 3-5 hours.  Serve.

This is so good, and we have it once a month.
