This is a great hearty soup... Tastes just like lasagna in a bowl. Serve with warm crusty bread for a perfect winter meal.

This is fantastic!! I made it exactly as written, and it was great. It wasn’t quite a lasagna taste, so I added about 1/3 cup of part skim ricotta, and that just took it over the top. I will definitely be making this on a regular basis! Thank you so much for sharing!! Read More

Turkey sausage does not taste good in our home.....allergies to onion garlic and tomatoes. The fresh mushrooms are excellent and we had Lasagna pasta to add. The fresh spinach was a nice addition. Next time we will use low sodium beef broth. Thanks for reading. A French baguette will be eaten with the soup next time. Read More

Yum! That's pretty much all I've got to say about that. Doesn't exactly taste like lasagna, more like a thicker minestrone - but it's delicious! I used farfalle, because I couldn't find the pasta called for - about 1 1/4 cup. And regular Italian Sausage, as its what I had on hand. This is a keeper! Oooh! I think adding some zucchini would be awesome too! Read More

Very good and flavorful. I was looking for a different kind of soup and this totally fit the bill. Only change i made was i did half pound of sasauge and half a pound of diced chicken thighs, just wanted another kind of meat in the soup besides the sasauge, and Italian sasauge can be a little rich so I wanted to mellow it out a bit....yum, will definitely be making this again! Kids, who can be picky loved it too!!! Read More

It was a good soup the pasta absorbs all of the liquid over time and become just Pasta over night. It is still good. Read More

I made this for the first time yesterday and had to discipline myself not to have a third bowl. Same with my husband. I think that I might cook the pasta ( I used small sea shell pasta..)separately next time because it soaked up all the broth and we like our soups more liquid. Read More
