So I’ve been making a lot of soups and hot dishes lately. I blame it on the cooler weather we’re having here, but regardless, they’ve all been really tasty.

I started by making lasagna soup, then my three bean chili, I moved on to butternut squash risotto, and then finally stopped with a butternut squash soup.

The reason why I love this lasagna soup so much I that it has the same great taste of lasagna, but without the time, effort and mess that goes into it. If you’re not a fan of zucchini or squash, you can simply omit those two ingredients, I just always add extra veggies where I can.

  1. This looks amazing! I must make this sometime. I love the addition of veggies – I bet it was so tasty!

  2. 5 stars
    I accidentally grabbed a can of fire roasted salsa style tomatoes (it has onion, garlic, jalapeños and Anaheim chilies in it) and didn’t realize it until I had already added it to the soup. So, I made some tweaks and ended up with a yummy Mexican version of this soup. I used all hamburger, I substituted elbow shaped pasta, I added corn in at the end along with the spinach and I finished it with the juice of a lime.  I followed the rest of the soup recipe exactly. Instead of the ricotta cheese mixture, I served it with sour cream and shredded cheddar. It was really good! Can’t wait to try the original recipe but I wanted to share this tasty twist.
