Lasagna Soup

It's not often that my entire family likes a meal.  At least not all at the same time.  They seem to change their minds about what they like more often than I would like...  They all LOVED this Lasagna Soup all at the same time!  There wasn't a single complaint or even a "Mom, please don't make this again".  When my 13 year old walked through the door from boxing he said "Wow Mom!  That smells good!"  That's always a good sign.

As we sit around the dinner table, I like to ask my kids what their favorite part of the day was that day.  My 6 year old said that dinner was her favorite part.  She loved being able to help make it in her new apron she got from one of her cute little friends at her birthday party, and she loved how yummy it turned out.  The hubs and I also said it was our favorite part of the day.  The hubs because it was so good, and myself because there wasn't any complaining.  Pretty sure Lasagna Soup will make a regular appearance at dinner time from now on.

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 glove garlic, minced
2 (10.75 ounce) cans tomato soup
2 (14.5 ounce) cans beef broth
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I used petite diced)
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 (12 ounce) package bow tie pasta, cooked according to package directions
Mozzarella cheese, shredded, for topping

Cook ground beef, onion and garlic in a large pot over medium heat until the beef is no longer pink.  Add tomato soup, beef broth, diced tomatoes, brown sugar and spices.  Mix well and bring to a simmer; simmer for 30 minutes.  Add cooked pasta and serve immediately topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.

  1. I could easily make this into a vegetarian dish and with still more rainy days ahead, this would be heartwarming:-D

  2. This is a pretty crazy idea, to be sure, but a good one . . . kind of like bolognese stew or really hearty minestrone. Zucchini or eggplant would be a nice addition for a summertime version.

  3. This looks yummy and one that I'm sure to make. I'm following you via GFC. I host Fluster Creative Muster Party on Wednesdays and I would love it if you would come by and party with us. Hope to see you there!

    Hugs, Smiles, and Blessings,
