Slow cooker lasagna soup – sounds kind of different, right? I promise it’s one dish you don’t want to miss out on this season!
One of my favorite foods in this world is my mom’s famous lasagna. It’s one of our most popular recipes ever, so I know a lot of other people love it, too!
It’s a really simple recipe, but it’s packed with a ton of flavor. With that said, sometimes I want something to be even simpler than that…but still give me the same satisfaction that the warm, cheesy lasagna does. Enter: slow cooker lasagna soup.
This soup is SO good. I took all my favorite parts of my mom’s lasagna recipe, and I made it into an even easier recipe that can be made in the slow cooker. I couldn’t get enough of it! We made it for my parent’s one Sunday evening a few weeks ago, and everyone enjoyed it so much.
I will say that it turned out a bit thicker, and some may like it to have a bit more broth in it…and if that’s the case, then just add 1/2 to 1 more cup of water! Either way, this is a hearty dish that is perfect for cooler weather. Pair it with garlic knots, and you’ve got yourself an amazing dinner!
