Can you believe it’s already September?! I feel like this year has absolutely flown! Since it’s getting cool up here in Minnesota, I wanted to share another family favorite. Lasagna Soup! So easy & comforting – perfect for chilly nights and busy weeks.
Have you ever had Lasagna soup? It’s such a simple recipe that you will love! We love the fresh spices so much. So incredibly delicious! If you don’t eat red meat, you can easily substitute ground turkey or chicken. It’s all personal preference really. I love to serve this with warm crusty bread and a light side salad, but it’s heart enough all on its own!
Emms can’t eat this because of his tomato allergy, so I always keep a bit of the meat separate & cook noodles separately for him. He gets deconstructed soup without the tomatoes! I don’t think he minds too much though. He’s all about the cheese and noodles right now.
