Slow Cooker Lasagna link:

This was really, really good and pretty easy.  The only change I made is using cottage cheese instead of ricotta because I didn't have that in the house.

White Chicken Chili
2 lbs. diced chicken
48oz jar Great Northern Beans (use juice also)
16oz jar of salsa
8oz Monterey Jack Cheese (I've also used colby jack)
2tsp. Cumin (I skip don't care for it)
1tsp. Chili Powder
1 1/2 cup Chicken broth

Put all together in a crock pot and cook for 4 hours on high. Add salt, pepper or ground red pepper as desired.
