I made Lasagna Soup last night. Partly because it is an amazingly delicious fall meal, and party to ruin my children’s’ lives.
But, all’s well that ends well and they each took at least three bites, bringing us to this week’s edition of: Recipes My Family Doesn’t Hate.
This recipe for amazing Lasagna Soup comes from Jaclyn at Cooking Classy- With a Sprinkle of Fancy. Don’t be intimidated by the classy/fancy name, Jaclyn’s recipes are simple with straightforward ingredients. As she points out in this post, the list of ingredients looks long, but it’s mostly just spices that you probably already have on hand. And this soup is miraculous. I love lasagna, but hate the prep work and multiple dirty pans it produces. Lasagna Soup cuts down on the amount of prep time and clean up, big parenting win.
~ Seven: “I ate everything but the noodles, can I have another piece of bread now? Bread with just butter- gross. Can I have honey? No? Why not? I don’t want it then. Can I get down from the table?
~ Four: “I told you I don’t like hamburger! I’m only eating the noodles. And bread. Pass the butter, please. Where is the honey?”
~ Three: “Disgustin’. I’m only eating bread.” Eats half a piece of bread and feeds the rest to the dog because, “Crust is disgustin”.” Hunger strike continues.
So… probably not the rave reviews you were hoping for, but it was a beautiful day in Emmetsburg yesterday so we skipped nap time, played at the beach for almost two hours and then had a lemonade stand so it probably wasn’t the best time to introduce a meal filled with such bizarre ingredients as noodles, hamburger and cheese.
In defense of Lasagna Soup, my husband and I each ate two bowls and I found myself making Cookie Monster noises as I went back for seconds, “Nom, nom, nom- this shit is soooo good!”
~ This makes a huge batch, especially if your kids only eat three bites each. Invite friends over.
~ If you prefer a thicker soup, cut the chicken stock back to three cups.
~ We substitute the mini lasagna noodles for full size, and at the end I just dump the cheese mixture into the pot and mix it all together instead of doing individualized servings. Because I prefer the path of least resistance.
Now head on over to Cooking Classy for the full recipe and enjoy!
