In a large skillet, cook Italian sausage until crumbled and no longer pink. Drain fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce. Set aside.
Combine cottage cheese, egg and parsley. Set aside.
Spray a 6-qt Slow Cooker with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of sauce in bottom of slow cooker.
Top sauce with 4 lasagna noodles, breaking to fit. Spread 1/3 of cottage cheese mixture of on top of noodles. Top with 1/4 of mozzarella slices. Top mozzarella with 1/3 of remaining sauce. Sprinkle 1/3 of parmesan cheese on top of sauce.
Repeat layers two more times. - noodles, cottage cheese, mozzarella, sauce and parmesan. Top lasagna with remaining mozzarella slices.
Cover slow cooker and cook on LOW for 4 hours.
Allow lasagna to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving.Can substitute ground beef or turkey sausage for Italian sausage.If you want a saucier lasagna, you can use 2 jars of spaghetti sauce and omit the 2 cans of tomato sauce. I used regular uncooked lasagna noodles. Do NOT boil the noodles first. Add them to the slow cooker dry/hard.Can cook on HIGH for 2 hours.
