Crockpot Lasagna

It's Tuesday recipe day already.  Today's recipe came from a Facebook post that my cousin Kim posted.  I didn't know what to make for supper tonight, and then I remembered this recipe.  I had all the ingredients on hand. The lasagna noodles are not pre-cooked, and the finished noodles seemed slightly starchy but not bad.    I will definitely make this again because it's so easy.  It doesn't cut in perfect squares because of the shape of my crockpot, but it holds together nicely without any eggs in the recipe.

1 pound Ground Beef
