"Yummy! Picky eaters will go for this one! Campbell's makes cream of onion soup. Looking at all of their soups, it can be easy to miss because there are so many....but it's there if you keep looking for it! They're the only one that makes it. I've never seen a "store brand" or any other brand of cream of onion. It has more flavor depth than cream of mushroom, so it's worth the search!"

"Loved this for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I used a pound of hamburger and French onion soup. This was my first time using no cook noodles and I loved them. Hubby makes traditional lasagna for us and wants to try them next time too."

"This wasn't at all bad for a skillet lasagna, the ease of it pushed it up to 5 stars. I couldn't find cream of onion soup so I used cream of mushroom, which worked perfectly. I did double the extra lean ground beef and amount of garlic also. I only had 23 oz jars of spaghetti sauce so I used one of those and it came out fine. I don't use low fat dairy of any kind so it was all full fat and delicious. I did double the amount of mozzarella and added 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Along with a salad and garlic bread this made enough for the 2 of us for 2 nights and the leftovers tasted even better. The next time I'm going to add a layer of sliced squash or spinach."

"You can find cream of onion soup at Wal mart but you have to really scan the shelves for it. I live in Idaho."

"Like others I could not find cream of onion soup anywhere, so used cream of chicken instead and added half a pkg of dried onion soup. Turned out great.

BTW for 'nmay', why post at all on this site if you are going to keep slamming recipes because of sodium etc. Simply go to another site!"
