"Really enjoyed this soup. Cooked the pasta before adding it as per other reviewers suggestions, and pureed the canned tomatoes purely to please my toddler :) Lots of flavour!"

"Although this tasted slightly more like chili to me than lasagna, I still enjoyed this recipe. I omitted the corn and added extra cheese. Very flavorful and a big hit with the family."

"I just made this soup. I did 1/2 the recipe as there is only me, I have not added the parmesan cheese as of yet but it seems to be lacking something. Would definitely make again."

"I agree with others that I don't know why this is called Lasagna soup. Still, it was hearty and tasty, so I'm glad I tried it and will probably make it again."

"easy to make, very hearty, good taste. I added more Italian seasoning than called for, plus basil and Mrs. Dash. Like others mentioned, I also used smaller noodles, cooked them separately, and added them at the end. However, unless you're going to eat the soup immediately, the noodles will still plump up too much and absorb a lot of the soup's liquid."

"CORN? IN LASAGNA? (which, by the way, is spelled LASAGNE). I'll give this a one star, only because there are no minus stars. And who uses beef broth to make lasgane? To make a lasagne-esque type soup, use a tomato base. This is basically a glorified vegetable soup. Not bad, but certainly not lasagne in any way shape or form. And use another type of pasta, the spirals are just silly. Would be far better with orecchiette pasta. Lasagne is Italian. This recipe is like making a ceasar salad with artichokes instead of romaine. Find a different name, because lasagne it is nothing like taste-wise or ingredient wise."

"This tastes really good, however, I didn't get a lasagna vibe from it. Tasted kinda like beef pasta veggie soup."
