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!

I made this soup when I first started my blog. We loved it and have made it several times since! I mean who doesn’t love a good lasagna? This soup is packed with all of the goodness of lasagna. Noodles, ground beef, marinara, and cheese. It is excellent! I know that you are going to love this soup as much as our family did!

  1. 70 degrees and sunny?! I’m sooo jealous! The sun only comes out in Chicago in the winter when it’s below 10. So we’ve seen the sun a lot lately but who wants to go outside when it’s in the single digits! Don’t even get me started on what the actual wind chills are!

  2. We loved this one! Easy & tastes great. I’ve made it several times now. Don’t change the recipe up. Great just like it is!
