My sister called me up the beginning of February & asked if I would join with her.
On a whim, I said sure.
So glad I did.
I found out that before I had even started I lost 30lbs. Since I have been a member, I've lost 16.6.
Grand total...46.6 lbs.
Well, I love to use recipes to help with the new lifestyle and this recipe is to die for!
Plus, make it in the crockpot.
Not to mention, Tuttorossa sent me a nice sample pack of some great canned tomatoes. It included:
28 oz Tuttorosso Crushed with Basil, Tuttorosso NSA Peeled Plum and Tuttorosso Diced Tomatoes.
I was excited to get them, as I grew up with Tuttorossa products.
They have actually teamed with Inspiralized.com for some fun.
Check out their Facebook promo: Tuttorossa Tomatoes.
You can win so many different things. Check out what the grand prize is:
Spiralizer, Inspiralized Book, Apron, Picnic Basket and Kitchen Gadgets.
Here's the catch, it ends tomorrow.
So, quick, check it out.
Now, onto my 7pt serving Lasagna.
I got the recipe from Weight Watchers.
First gather your ingredients:
After you have gathered your ingredients & your slow cooker, start your engines & get ready to make a great lasagna.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon as it cooks, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes; simmer 5 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together ricotta cheese and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
- Spoon 1/3 of beef mixture into a 5-quart slow cooker. Break 3 lasagna sheets in half and arrange over beef mixture; top with half of ricotta mixture. Repeat with another layer and finish with remaining 1/3 of beef mixture.
- Cover slow cooker and cook on low setting for 4 to 6 hours. Remove cover; turn off heat and season to taste, if desired.
- In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese; sprinkle over beef mixture. Cover and set aside until cheese melts and lasagna firms up, about 10 minutes. Yields 1/6th of dish per serving.
This is the finished product.
It is good.
Now for the point value...if you cut it into 1/8" slices, it's 7 points. If you give yourself a larger portion, count it as 10.
I'm telling you this is worth it!!!!
Tell me, how do you cook your lasagna?
