Lasagna Soup: Your Recipe, My Kitchen

Lasagna Soup

I have had my eye on this soup for a long time.  The idea of a bowl full of pasta in a sausage filled tomato sauce with a dollop of ricotta/Parmesan on top really had me excited to try it.  What I needed, though, was a cold day.  Luckily, Mother Nature obliged.

Lasagna Soup

This recipe has made the rounds of the internet.  I always try to find the original source to site. I think this came from the cookbook 300 Senstational Soups, but I found it on A Farm Girls Dabbles.  I did just a little bit of adaptation to the recipe because I had what I had in the fridge and, as a rule, I never run to the store just for one recipe.
