Hearty Lasagna Soup

heartysmarty2109 views

This recipe is my healthified (that should be a word, right?) version of a soup that was served in the café which my dietetics colleagues and I spent a semester running in college. The original recipe was pretty heavy, so I altered it to include more vegetables and less meat. At dinner last night, my six-year-old boy asked if I could make this soup on every soup night. I hope you enjoy it as much as he does!
