Lasagna Soup Recipe
Here is a great recipe I’ve been playing with for a while. Lasagna Soup is a cozy, hearty soup. It’s great for a filling meal for when you’ve had a busy active day and you need something to really comfort you. It’s quick to make and gives you the same feeling as having a plate of lasagna. Bake (or buy) a nice loaf of bread like this one I made this week and you’re all set!
An Easier Alternative To Lasagna
I love this recipe; Lasagna Soup is really simple and doesn’t require any fancy ingredients. I love making a big pan of lasagna but it can be really time-consuming to make and it can end up really high calorie with all the layers of noodles and cheese. Making Lasagna Soup is a great way to lower the calories by cutting back on noodles and basically upping the sauce into a soup! If you like different things in your lasagna (everyone has their own favorite recipe) I encourage you to find a way to incorporate that into this soup! Maybe add wilted spinach and broccoli or do half sausage, half ground turkey to lower the calories further (to make room for more cheese!)
You could easily make Lasagna Soup vegetarian by swapping out the chicken broth for veggie broth and exchanging the sausage for extra veggies. Swap out the cheeses or omit them altogether and up the pasta sauce and broth to keep the portions from shrinking.
However you decide you’d like it, I hope you’ll give my recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments!
