A cozy, hearty dinner idea...
A healthy, wholesome weeknight dinner
I love a good soup in the winter! Lasagna is definitely one of my favorite comfort dishes and combining that dish into soup just makes the perfect combination.
Ingredients in lasagna soup
You can mix around with the spices in this recipe and adjust the cups of water/lasagna sheets/amount of beef according to your family members!
Use lean minced beef for best results. You can also add some ground sausage to it.
Use 1 small onion and 2-3 garlic cloves.
Use tomato paste and marinara sauce, you can make your own sauce or use a store bought brand.
You will need chicken broth for this recipe, you can also use a “bullion cube” instead.
Use any kind of lasagna sheets you’d like!
You may mix and combine any cheese you prefer. I decided to use parmesan and mozzarella cheese for this recipe.
