This recipe is amazingly delicious. It seriously reminds me of lasagna. Its a great one for the crockpot as well as on the stove.
1 lb. Ground Beef (can use Chicken or Turkey)
1 Onion, diced (I prefer Red Onion)
1 Bell Pepper, diced (I use a mixture of Red and Green, equaling about 1/2C total)
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Cans Diced Tomatoes (Can use about 5-6 small to medium fresh tomatoes, this is best for the crockpot)
1 8oz. Can Tomato Sauce
15-32 oz. Jar of Red Sauce (I like mine really saucy so I use a quart sized jar, any brand or homemade is fine)
4C Vegetable Broth (Can use chicken or beef, I prefer to taste of veggie)
2tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
Pepper and Salt per serving to taste
1 tsp. Dried Thyme
1T Brown Sugar
2 C Lasagna Noodles, broken into pieces (to make GF use a GF noodle)
2 C Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese, shredded
-In large skillet over medium heat, brown beef, when beef is about half way done, add in onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook until beef is completely brown. Drain off grease.
-If doing crockpot, add beef to pot along with everything but noodles and cheese. Set pot on low about 6 hours. About 30 minutes prior to serving, add in broken noodles, cook until tender. Stir in parmesan cheese just before serving. Add some mozzarella cheese to individual servings. Enjoy!
-If doing this on stove, add in all other ingredients but noodles and cheese. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat, simmer about 20 minutes. Add in noodles and cook until tender. Stir in parmesan cheese; then serve as stated above.
