Platings and Pairings' Lasagna Soup Transforms a Classic Noodle Dish

Most people who have made a layered lasagna dish from scratch can tell you that it takes quite a bit of time—but this lasagna soup recipe from the Platings and Pairings blog offers a way to enjoy all of the same flavors without a major time commitment.

The Italian-inspired soup is made with all of the same ingredients that you'd find in a classic lasagna, including ground beef, chopped onion, tomatoes, tomato paste, plus some savory herbs and spices like basil, oregano, thyme, parsley and rosemary. Rather than spending hours at a time carefully arranging layers of vegetables, meat, cheese and noodles, this dish takes about 10 minutes to prepare and only 20 to cook. To really make this dish resemble a baked lasagna, it can be served with a combination of shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
