All of the goodness of lasagna is packed into this hearty and delicious soup! Packed with noodles, ground beef, marinara and cheese, this is a soup that your family will love!
I figured that I could squeeze one last soup recipe in before it gets too warm. But actually here in Utah it has been incredibly warm. We have been enjoying our last few days outside. It has been in the 70s here. It is insane. We have been jacket free and driving with the sun roof open! But luckily for me, I could eat soup year round. I love it and this recipe is one of our favorites!
