Ingredients

  • 1 1/4

    pounds Italian sausage

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese

  • 2

    egg whites

  • 2

    cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 1

    cup Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/2

    teaspoon oregano

  • 2

    (26-ounce) jars spaghetti sauce

  • 1

    (16-ounce) box uncooked ziti pasta

  • 1/4

    teaspoon chopped parsley

Directions

Coat a 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Rinse uncooked pasta, drain and set aside. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage, onion, and garlic 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned; drain and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, egg whites, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and oregano; mix well. In the slow cooker, layer 2 cups sauce, half the sausage mixture, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, half the ziti, and half the ricotta mixture; repeat layers. Top with remaining sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese and parsley on top. Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours, or until pasta is tender.
