This January is one of the coldest I can remember. Sure we’ve had windchills below zero, before,but the actual temperature here hit -5 this week!

This type of weather makes me crave warm, comforting food. Personally I can’t think of anything more warming than soup or comforting than lasagna.

Why not put them together into one delicious meal? Bam Lasagna Soup was born!

  1. This sounds sensational! Just exactly what we need to combat the cold! (Yeah – we’re staring down sub-zero temps again here in Ohio, too!) Love your suggestions to sub ground turkey, Italian sausage, veggie crumbles – I swap between different meats like that in my fave veggie soup. Regardless – this soup looks absolutely fantastic! Pinning for sure! 😀
