Lasagna is clearly a food loved by most. Now the problem is, who has time to throw together layers and layers of lasagna on the weeknight? This lasagna soup is a perfect weeknight meal that has the same flavors as a great lasagna with a fraction of the effort. You can also substitute where needed. As long as you have 2 1/2 cups of dairy, it can be whatever you want it to be. I wouldn’t recommend leaving the ricotta out but the yogurt and half and half can be subbed for whatever you have on hand!
