Lunch / Dinner
This Lasagna Soup tastes just like its seven-layer cousin, but it takes half the time and a fraction of the work. It’s perfect for a weeknight warm-up amidst the busy holiday season.
Test Kitchen Tip
If you have trouble finding mini lasagna noodles (mafalda), campanelle or penne pasta are great substitutes in the lasagna soup.
