Lasagna “Soup”


This is one of the yummiest soups I have ever had..hands down. Sadly, it wasn’t really a soup..more like a pasta with a thinner sauce. But DO NOT let that deter you, because that aside, this is one of the most delicious meals I’ve eaten..and Im telling you, do not, I repeat do not  eliminate the cheesy goodness, it is the best part! Now you all know I’m not really a leftover gal, however, after we had this for dinner, I couldn’t wait to be hungry that night at work! ha! Yes, twice in one night..(well at 2am..its all the same when you work the night shift!) It was JUST as delicious the second time around!

This couldn’t be easier to make and could not possibly get any yummier! Add this to your dinner rotation this week! You will be thanking me! 😉

Enjoy!

(Look at that cheesy goodness starting to melt! mmm!)
