This soup is fantastic in flavors and if you love Lasagna, is is a fast spot on tasting lasagna soup that everyone raves about.

A great way to satisfy that pasta craving in minutes, this is so easy for any night of the week.

The kids love it, the family enjoys it all winter long and they don't have to wait for a special occasion to get that pasta fix they love during a holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter!

I love making this as a start for my guests and it goes great with a Pot Roast meal or really just about anything you serve.

Actually, you can make this comforting soup as a whole meal, it's really one of my best soup recipes!

The Soup is so Versatile!

You can make this soup two different ways, full fat or low fat.

Either way, we love it, and the kids can't tell the difference with low-fat soup changes.

I usually like to add some fennel seed to the ground turkey to make it taste like sausage.

The soup is full of great flavors and you can even substitute whole wheat pasta to make it even healthier!

Just remember, you can adapt this any way you like by adding fat-free, low fat or full-fat ingredients!

If you're in a hurry you can even use fat-free egg noodles instead of the pasta suggestions.

I usually use ground turkey and turkey sausage for this soup, however, you can use ground sirloin, no sausage and add 1 teaspoon of fennel seed.

The meat will still have a sausage flavor even if you use all ground turkey, the fennel will add that additional flavor you get from a baked lasagna real pasta dish.

The soup and aroma are fabulous for this soup and the sauce is meaty and rich.

Love Lasagna?

Mom always made the best and had several kinds of lasagna she prepared we love.

Baked Lasagna was saved for favorite holidays, we also enjoyed Shrimp lasagna and she often made a mock lasagna with Bow Tie Pasta that was quick and easy lasagna!

Believe or not my family even loves a Mexican Style Lasagna, I guess you can say we are lasagna lovers of all kinds!

Do give those a try and let me know what you think of this favorite soup recipe we love!
