    I prepared this soup last night and declare it a winner. It has been rainy and overcast for several days and seemed like perfect soup weather. It hit the spot. I had a hard time finding a boxed lasagna mix but finally opted for a Hamburger Helper lasagna mix. I prepared the recipe with a few changes. I did not have a zucchini but did have yellow squash and that substituted perfectly. The recipe is easy to prepare and goes together quickly.  I thought it was a little bland so added some salt and pepper and I would definitely pass the Parmesan cheese when serving as it made a big difference. This was declared a winner and thumbs up by my husband and myself as well.  (A side note: I thought I was preparing the Lasagna Soup in the current TOH magazine but discovered that this was a different one. I'll try the one in the magazine soon.) (Also edited to add: I am not a huge Hamburger Helper fan but with all the other ingredients, this soup had a delicious lasagna flavor. I will make it again.)

    Here is the recipe and my photos.

    Lasagna dinner mix was a Hamburger Helper type product.

    Thanks, ladies, for peeking in. I had a hard time figuring out what lasagna mixes were out there and available but Hamburger Helper was the only one I could find. Walmart didn't have anything. I didn't want to run around and check out other grocery stores since they were not close by. The Hamburger Helper worked just fine. Kathy, you might find a Chef Boyardee mix. I've not seen one around here.

    We really enjoyed it and will probably have another bowl for dinner tonight since we ate a large lunch.

    Edited to add: Thanks Sue. It didn't specify in the recipe and I thought there might be one like a pizza mix that comes in a box. Glad to know I picked the right one - LOL.

    Ladies, it really is soup weather here in Texas, too. We've had a cold snap and a bowl of warm soup tastes so good. I have to admit that when I heated this soup the next day, my husband commented that he thought it tasted even better. It did. Thanks for peeking in.
