Lasagna Soup

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a yummy recipe, but I promised myself I would do more of it as I found new recipes that I enjoy.

As a full time working mama I’m partial to crock pot recipes. It’s so easy to dump a bunch of stuff in the crockpot before you leave for work and then come home from work with nothing to do but serve what’s been cooking all day for you. I love easy stuff during the week; I NEED easy stuff during the week.

This week I decided to try the lasagna soup that I hear everyone talking about and see everyone pinning. The recipe I found was on Pinterest from Family Fresh Meals and it was so good!

Here is what you need:
1 lb. ground beef (or vegetarian crumble)
3 cups of beef broth (or vegetable broth to make vegetarian)
1 cup of water
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced (due to my lack of garlic I used garlic powder)
1 TB dried parsley
1 TB dried basil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1, 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1, 6oz can of tomato paste
1 cup V8 (or any vegetable drink)
2 cups uncooked shell pasta
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
Optional topping- shredded cheese

1. First mix together the can of tomatoes, and tomato paste in crockpot.

2. Next add broth, beef, garlic, parsley, basil, onion, V8 and salt/pepper.

3. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.

4. When 30 minutes are left of cook time, add in the 1 cup of water and noodles. Stir to combine. Put lid back on and continue cooking for 30 minutes. {I ended up just boiling the noodles right when I got home and when they were done I dumped them in the crockpot. It was a time saver for this mama.}

If you like your soup to have more liquid,  feel free to add some extra broth and or water when you add the noodles.

Serve with some bread and butter and voila! Quick and easy! Enjoy!
