Tastes Like Lasagna Soup


Today is the last day of soup week and we are ending with a good one.  I adapted the recipe from one I found on pauladeen.com.  It’s called Tastes Like Lasagna Soup and it really does taste just like lasagna.  This soup is full of flavor.  Add a tossed salad with some bread and your set.  I highly recommend divine breadsticks, garlic herb bread, or easy peasant bread with this soup.

I also posted my last post about Napa today over on my events page.  I also have a giveaway for you with that post, so be sure to check it out.

Also a heads up for next week.  All week long I’ll be talking Thanksgiving dinner.  I will have a different Thanksgiving dish each day that will help take your meal from beginning to end. I will also be taking part in a Virtual Progressive Thanksgiving dinner with some other bloggers.  Each day I will let you know who is hosting so you can check out their part of the meal too.  I will be hosting the “virtual dinner” at my blog on Wednesday.  Other blogs taking part include Food For My FamilySimple Bites, Eat at Home, Unsophisticook, and  Hoosier Homemade. I also have a couple of giveaways to help you with your Thanksgiving meal! Should be a really fun week.
