Reviews for Lasagna Soup
"We absolutely loved this soup and so easy to prepare! I used a boxed lasagna dinner from Aldi's and it worked fine. I used about a cup of frozen sweet corn instead of the canned and then added a tad more water. We got two meals out of it. First go-round, we had with french bread and finished off the soup with some grilled turkey and cheese sandwiches. I wouldn't change a thing....it's a wonderful hearty soup as is and I am glad to have found the recipe!"
"Exccellent hearty soup!"
"I prepared this soup last night and both my husband and I declared it a winner and thumbs up. It is easy to prepare and quick, too. I used a yellow squash as that is all I had and it substituted perfectly. I thought it was a little bland so added salt and pepper and definitely pass the Parmesan cheese as that makes it! Here is a link to my review with photos.http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/30/t/890181.aspx"
"I have been making this recipe for years. Actually since TOH first issued it in their magazine. We love it! AND it is so easy!"
"We really liked this. My husband isn't a soup guy, but has asked for this several times, so must be good. I only used 1/2 pound of beef, seemed to be enough and increased the water to 6 cups. I also added a tsp. of Italian Seasoning. I think I'll try to do half water/half beef broth next time for more flavor. I'm not big on boxed meals, but I now keep a box or two of Lasagna Hamburger Helper in the cupboard."
"I have been making this since it was first published in 1999 and have passed it on to many others. It is delicious and soooo easy and most of the ingredients I always have on hand. I use a can of zucchini in tomato sauce when I do not have fresh zucchini on hand."
"This was decent but has room for improvement. I made this with the Velveeta Lasagna dinner mix instead because I don't like Hamburger Helper. I also added taco seasoning for additional flavor because with all the water it was hard to taste the seasoning from the lasagna dinner mix alone. I also topped each serving with some sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese and served with corn muffins. I believe next time I will try using only two cups of water along with one or two cups of beef broth."
"quick and easy! Will definitely make again!"
"Amazing. Who'da thunk? I agree about using less water, because the zucchini has enough in it already."
"This has got to be one of my families favorite soups! It's so simple."
"I have made this so many times! It never lasts long in our house, so I always double it!"
"I enjoyed this soup. However it does taste like the lasagna hamber helper, so if you like that, then you will like this, but if you do not like "hamburger helper" this is not for you. If I make again, I will add 1 less cup of water. As it was a bit watery. And the zucchini is fine, but you do not have to use it, maybe even try frozen green beans."
"This was very easy and something a little different than my usual beef vegetable soups."
"We loved this soup...I did do only 3 cups of water and then 2 cups of beef stock to add extra flavor, and added fresh mushrooms when I added the zucchini. Would make this again!"
"I have made this recipe about 5 times and love it each time! I use different boxed pasta meals to change it up a bit too, also different veggies. It's awesome"
"this is the best,serve with some garlic bread or breadsticks for dipping....you wont have leftovers it is so yummy ( and yes I use the hamburger helper lasagna)"
"I liked the thought of this recipe so I thought I would give it a try. My husband and I found that it was extremely watery even for a soup. The flavor was just not there. I will not make this dish again."
"To SaraSTR, i think this is probably a Hamburger Helper type thing."
"Boxed lasagna mix is found with the pasta normally (think Hamburger Helper). "
"What is "lasagna dinner mix", what section of grocery store? I haven't heard of this before."
