Why I Love This Recipe
We loved this! We love lasagna and my mom used to make it every Christmas Eve and we looked forward to that dinner! For some reason I thought it was complicated or time consuming to make and I've only tried making it once! Lasagna has been on my mind lately and I guess you can say that I've been craving it! When I came across some recipes for Lasagna Soup, I was interested and I made some! It was quicker than making a pan of regular lasagna but I missed all of the ooey gooey cheese that regular lasagna has!
It is a hearty soup and the noodles were awesome! Thicker than regular noodles and perfect! I'll be making this soup again! Love in the tummy!
Recipe slightly adapted from Julie's Eats And Treats and I love her blog!
