Simple Dinners: Lasagna Soup

It is FINALLY cold here on the west coast, and that means that we are ready for winter meals. I love a hearty soup or stew on a cold winter night. Sometimes soup can feel like it isn’t a hearty enough meal. So I try to choose soups that will have a higher protein count in them. We love Italian soups like Minestrone, Zuppa Toscana, and Sausage Potato and Kale Soup. This year I wanted to add a new soup. A friend of mine told me about a blog she had recently read with a Lasagna Soup. My family loves Lasagna. However, I really don’t like any of the premade ones for sale — and making it from scratch is not feasible on a weeknight. Lasagna Soup might just give me that lasagna taste without the work.

So of course I ahd to check it out. Cooking Classy has a simple and fun recipe that is absolutely heavenly. I was able to make it on a tuesday, and I had enough left over to freeze and use another night. I simply left the noodles out that way when I thaw it the noodles are not soggy. Since noodles cook fairly quickly, they can be placed in the soup as it comes to temperature and boils.

Now I can have my lasagna fix any day of the week, thank you so much Cooking Classy for helping this lazy Italian lover. Be sure to check out the other incredible recipes at Cooking Classy when you are their getting all the details for this wonderful winter soup.
