    Have you ever wanted to find a super simple lasagna recipe? Here is our favorite crockpot lasagna recipe.  This uses Cottage cheese instead of Ricotta cheese which makes it a healthier option.  You cannot tell the difference once it is cooked, so don’t get grossed out first!

    We used Farfalle Noodles in place of Lasagna Noodles because they were less money.  This recipe turns out perfect every time, so we hope you enjoy it!
