Lasagna Soup is basically what dreams are made of. It’s currently snowing horizontally here and I could not think of a better dish to snuggle up on the couch with! Think of all the wonderful, memory-filled flavors of a classic lasagna in a soup that is perfect for dunking a hunk of chunky bread in. The lasagna noodles are smothered in a rich, decadent sauce that has been slow cooked to perfection. Top if off with some fresh basil, parmesan cheese and a scoop of ricotta and you have the makings of a perfect Lasagna Soup.
This soup really is a one-pot meal, as everything is simmered in one pot to make a delicious, easy clean-up soup that everyone will want to dig into. I sure didn’t mind having leftovers of this one! You can easily heat up the leftover Lasagna Soup, or pour the leftovers into a baking dish, top it with cheese and bake it for a re-constructed Lasagna Soup Lasagna. Ya feel me? I’m just thinking about all that gooey, melty cheese that would crust over on the top. Leftovers are never a bad idea!
This meal will bring back all of the nostalgic memories of lasagna in a simple, soup form. You’ll definitely want a piece of crispy bread to dunk into this one!
