One pot lasagna soup is the perfect quick and easy dinner recipe. If you love lasagna, you will love this soup. All that lasagna taste, without all the work, because it’s made in one pot!
We’ve all heard it is not nice to fool with Mother Nature, right? But what about when Mother Nature fools with us? Oh sure she teased us when it was in the 60s for five-six days, all the snow was gone, had a little extra skip in my step then bam we woke up this morning to ten inches of snow! What’s a girl to do?
Well, that is where this lasagna soup comes in. We did have a heads up that the storm was coming so I ran out last night to get “provisions” as we prepared to hunker down. That’s what us Minnesotans do, even this transplanted one – we wouldn’t want to starve. 🙂
The lasagna soup really hit the spot and it made the house smell so good. Really, just like a lasagna without having all those steps in making one. Lots of sausage, mini curly pasta, tomatoes, garlic and spices all poured over a cheesy mixture. Yummo! We even have some leftovers for a lunch or another meal. This is one recipe that I’m definitely going to make again.
One thing I wanted to note for you. Did you ever notice how pasta grows and gets really soft when you cook it in the soup? I usually cook the pasta separately then add to the soup when I’m about to serve it. I got this tip from observing an Italian restaurant doing this when customers ordered soup. I usually just toss some olive oil on the pasta so it doesn’t stick. No more mushy monster pasta!
We do love our soups here and a couple other favorite recipes that are easy to make is this Creamy Tomato Spinach Tortellini soup and this healthy Sweet Potato and Black Bean soup (it’s got a kick to it)
Ok, Mother Nature – you got us and I won’t complain too much but please let this snow melt quickly and get those temperatures back up there. This gal is so over winter!
Oh and I have to give a shout-out to our mailman! You know the saying -neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night, etc? Well with unplowed roads today, he parked at the bottom of our cul de sac and walked the mail around. What a guy!
I think he deserves a big bowl full of warm lasagna soup!
