I’m a huge lasagna lover. Very seldom do I make it. I find it takes up too much time, and with two young children running around time is something that is very sparse these days.
Last night I threw together a lasagna soup (also known as lazy mans lasagna). It was quick and easy. The prep work was timeless. Perfect for a day when you don’t have much time to cook, especially Halloween night.
1lb ground beef (raw & crumbled)
28oz can diced tomatoes with italian seasonings
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups beef broth
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 tbsp club house garlic plus seasoning
1/2 tsp herbs
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
330g light ricotta cheese
8 to 10 lasagna noodles (broken into pieces)
Add broths, tomato soup, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, seasonings to crock pot. Crumble in raw ground beef. Cover and cook for 7 to 8 hours on low.
During the last 30 to 60 minutes mix in ricotta cheese and lasagna noodles. I added 10 lasagna noodles because we prefer chunkier soups. This makes for more a lazy man lasagna. If you’re not looking for something chunky add in less noodles.
Serve and top with shredded mozzarella cheese (optional).
