Quilts for Kids

      Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day at the National Headquarters of Quilts for Kids in Fairless Hills, PA.  Quilts for Kids provides comfort quilts to children in need -- those with cancer, AIDS, life-threatening illnesses & children of abuse.  This is a very important charity that I support completely.  Their hope is to bring a bit of comfort to children going through tough times.  If you are interested in donating to this worthwhile cause please visit their web site  --  www.quiltsforkids.org   I love to be able to spread my passion for quilting to those less fortunate, especially children. 

   Now -- for my Crock Pot Lasagna Recipe!  For those of us who love lasagna but dislike all the work involved, this recipe is for you.  Serve with a salad and Italian bread and you will have a delicious meal. 

Crock Pot Lasagna

10 lasagna noodles, uncooked
1 # ground beef
1 t. Italian seasoning
28 oz jar spaghetti sauce
1/4 C Water
4 oz can sliced mushrooms (optional)
15 oz ricotta cheese (or 2% cottage cheese)
2 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown ground beef, drain. Add Italian seasoning, spaghetti sauce, water
and mushrooms.

 Break half of noodles into bite-sized pieces and place on bottom of crock pot.

Layer half of sauce and half of both cheeses. Repeat with rest of broken lasagna noodles, sauce and cheeses. Save a little sauce for the top of the pot. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

(Makes 6-8 servings)

 In my next post I hope to chat about my adventures with my Dear Jane quilt. 
Until next time.....
