Notes

  • Try making my fast and easy Homemade Egg Noodles to add, just roll them a bit thinner and wider for more of a lasagna noodle texture! Add directly to the soup and cook in soup liquid as directed in my recipe. They last much longer in soup and do not get mushy the next day!
  • If you prefer cheddar cheese to mozzarella, use grated cheddar on the top of your soup
  • If you don't have italian sausage, just use any ground meat you have! We have a lot of game meat, so I often substitute recipes with ground venison or elk that we have. I prefer ground meat in my lasagna, but honestly, you could use this with any type of meat you have, even chopped up chicken if you don't want to make an extra trip to the store!
