Comforting
And Hearty!

We all love lasagna, but sometimes it can just take too much time to prepare. Now its flavors are in an easy to throw together soup.

Lasagna is a classic Italian meal. Sadly, it can take a lot of time to prepare and is generally not thought of as a quick weeknight supper. Well, we have changed that! This soup has all the flavors of lasagna but it's cooked in a slow cooker and can cook all day while you are at work! It's a fabulous mixture of spicy sausage, ground veal, ground pork and ground beef. In the last half hour just throw in some pasta and some fresh baby spinach. Delicious!
