Lasagna Soup Recipe

My youngest daughter had been hearing about lasagna soup and decided to try it out on her family since she was looking for a new soup recipe to try. This turned out to be a very easy to make soup and the flavors reminded her of a cross between a nice Pasta e Fagioli Soup and lasagna flavors. What is not to like about lasagna ingredients? The whole family enjoyed the soup, especially topped with cheese!

Many recipes only use hamburger, but she decided to also incorporate Italian sausage for a more authentic lasagna flavor. Try this soup when you are looking for a simple and satisfying dinner during the cold weather months. Serve with some warm garlic bread and salad. In this recipe we have provided both stovetop and slow cooker instructions.
