A quick, 1-bag trip to the store is all you need to cook for the week when you have recipes like this Lasagna Soup! Fresh ground beef or meatloaf mix and cheeses combine with pantry staples for this easy and delicious soup. You can have everything you love about lasagna but without all the work, and it cooks all in one pot! Just sauté lean ground beef with onion and garlic, add marinara and beef broth and simmer. Add in the pasta (it goes in dry, so it absorbs all the flavor as it cooks and you only have one pot to clean). Cook until the pasta is tender, then finish with mozzarella and ricotta. This version of lasagna soup is a hearty and delicious meal in a bowl that you can make anytime you want some comfort food!
