Easy Lasagna Soup

Easy Lasagna Soup
This recipe was recommended by a friend (thanks for sharing Megan). She has made this Easy Lasagna Soup for her family numerous times and always receives rave reviews. Since I’m a big soup lover and my kids love pasta, I thought this recipe would be a great compromise for us 🙂

When it was time to serve, they wondered whether they should eat it with a spoon or fork. They got an eye roll from me and a reminder that it was called lasagna SOUP. Needless to say, once they took their first bite using a SPOON, they were all pleasantly surprised. They really enjoyed this soup…and so did I. It’s a keeper for our family.

I used my Tramontina Dutch Oven to make this soup. For this recipe, I used the larger size in this set. I love the color and how versatile it is. I don’t know what I did without my dutch ovens!

Substitutions/Additions made by Cooking After Class for Easy Lasagna Soup:

  • used ground venison instead of turkey
  • subbed 1/4 tsp caraway seeds for 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • used 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes instead of 1/2 tsp
  • used a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes…I couldn’t find the smaller size and didn’t have a use for the rest

Tips from Cooking After Class for making Easy Lasagna Soup:

  • This recipe calls for half a box of lasagna noodles so either double the soup, plan to make another batch in a few weeks, or find another recipe that only calls for half a box of noodles so they don’t go unused.
