"This recipe is excellent for working mothers because it's fast to make and very flavorful," writes Gladys Shaffer from her home in Elma, Washington. Fresh zucchini and corn add color and crunch to a boxed lasagna dinner mix.

    This was so simple and quick to make. I did add more broken up lasagna noodles as my family likes a heartier soup, but other than that no changes - excellent soup and will definitely make again.

    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's a wonderful hearty soup as is and I am glad to have found the recipe!

    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.

    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.
