Reviews for Best Lasagna Soup
Sort By :
"Made this tonight, and thought it was kind of just "meh". Definitely had to add some flavor, and it was still just ho-hum. I added a bit of Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt, and a bit of sugar to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes (2 tsp or so). But it definitely doesn't taste like any lasagna I ever had. I used 1/2 gr beef, 1/2 Italian sausage, like others recommended. I'm not giving up on this recipe - I think next time I will omit the corn, and put some of the things in that I actually use in my lasagna - a bit of ricotta cheese for some creaminess, a little fennel seed, and some parsley. A good start to a soup, but has a long way to go to be "the best" - in my opinion, of course. Everyone has different tastes though, that's what makes the world go 'round!"
"It needs mozzarella to make it more lasagna like. It was tasty though."
"Hubby approved! I like it, too. I omitted the green pepper & corn, pureed the diced tomatoes and halved the recipe except the beef. Cooked the pasta separately to pour the cooled cooking water on a bush - natural fertilizer."
"I think "lasagna" is a little misleading, I've never had green pepper in lasagna before, but it's still delicious. Also, I used whole stewed tomatoes instead of diced."
"I wish I had read the reviews before making this recipe. I wanted to make soup, not stew! Be forwarned....if you are going to eat this immediately after making it, you will enjoy "soup." If you are making ahead or plan to eat it an hour or two later, be prepared for lasagna stew or casserole! Once you add in the pasta, the starch thickens the soup very quickly until there is no "soup." It tastes fine but disappointed."
