Raise your hand if you like to make easy meals. *raises hand* I’m lucky to get dinner on the table by 8pm most nights. I had a little spurt where I was getting dinner ready around 5:30, but then I had my second kid and somehow the days got a lot shorter. I feel like there’s a time burglar slowly stealing time. Do you ever feel that way? I’m fairly impatient too which makes it really hard to wait for things. Of course when I’m waiting it feels like time is moving slowly.
This soup is perfect for those days when you feel like time is moving too fast. When you don’t have a minute to spare but want a hearty dinner, you might try this amazing soup. My mom shared this with me a few months ago and I’ve made it several times since then. It wasn’t meant to be made in the crockpot, but I threw caution to the wind and made it that way anyways. It worked!
Not only is this an easy meal to throw in the crockpot, it’s also low in calories. And we like low in calories don’t we? And to top it all off, this soup is delicious! You’d never know that it was low cal or low fat. Those are the best kinda meals. And even the pickiest of eaters will eat this. My daughter ate every bite and I didn’t even have to bribe her (I know!).
The recipe calls for spiral noodles, but I usually use whatever I have on hand. Although it does seem to look better with the spiral noodles. When making this in the crockpot, you’ll want to throw everything BUT the noodles in to cook. Then in the last 10 minutes or so, throw them in to let them cook up. This is what I’ve found to be the easiest way to make it in the crockpot. Top it with some parmesan cheese and you have incredible lasagna soup! I’m not even just saying that. It really is the BEST lasagna soup. I hope that you try it!
