Lasagna Soup Recipe with Mushrooms made in the slow cooker while you’re doing other things or on the stove top in just 30 minutes. Fresh sliced mushrooms and spinach in a rich, tomato broth with ground beef topped with mozzarella and ricotta.

Ah Thanksgiving ~ my favorite holiday probably because it’s the best eating gathering all year. By now it’s behind us but with just weeks before the next holiday, maybe you’re looking for a few simple weeknight recipes that everyone will enjoy (sans the picky toddlers).  

This Lasagna Soup Recipe is as comforting as its layered counterpart, but as an added bonus you can make it in just 30 minutes on top of the stove or just add the ingredients to your slow cooker and let it do the heavy lifting.

The broth is boldly rich on its own but for more flavor I’ve added mushrooms and vitamin enhanced fresh spinach they won’t even know is in there. It’s balanced with bite size lasagna noodles plus seasoned ground beef and practically guaranteed to have everyone asking for seconds.

It’s not lasagna in any form without cheese so there’s a fistful of mozzarella in the broth. At the table, I top each bowl with a little more mozzarella and a hefty dollop of a ricotta, parmesan, basil blend.
