Reviews for Best Lasagna Soup
"Perfection! Got rave reviews - will make again!"
"It was okay. Nothing to write home about."
"We did not care for this recipe"
"Made this soup last night, exactly as written. Definitely easy and a good starter soup. Would definitely cook noodles separate. As they did get extremely mushy and absorbed the broth as many others shared as well. Has many possibilities, family liked it, especially after shoveling snow. But I will definitely tweak and add some more spices, maybe fennel and oregano. Also next time will try with sausage or a 50 50 blend of sausage and hamburger. Thank you for a busy woman's dream recipe, easy, quick, filling and everything in the cupboard!"
"I hate ground beef, so I used sweet Italian chicken sausage and chicken broth. Very tasty! I would add a dollop of ricotta when you're serving so it really tastes like lasagne. Along with ricotta, I added fresh basil and extra parmesan when serving. Also, I really like small pasta in soups otherwise, it's hard to scoop, so I used about 1 cup mini elbow macaroni, 2 1/2 cups of pasta would make it stewy. Anyway,would make again!"
