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.)

Joan, I think the hubby would like this...I will put this on the winter soup list for him.
I will get some garlic bread, too...
Thanks for sharing the recipe and great photos! Linda
Pass me a bowl please- I would like some
That looks super good Joan. I don't think I've seen those lasagna kits but will look for them. Thank-you much, your review is great & pictures drool-worthy!
Looks great Joan! Love your pictures! I'm wondering if Chef Boyardee would have the mix? I'll check it out! Thanks!
Joan that looks great!
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.
Joan, that recipe looks and sounds really good....this weather gets me in the soup mood too. Great photos - thanks for sharing.

_nlfPAIt sure looks like a winner to me.
Soup weather is upon us and I've copied this one.
Joan, That is one bowl of delicious Ness* I have not bought those boxed mix's in years. They really do offer some store bought help.
Thanks for sharing the Recipe and Review. Great Photo too.

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.
