Crockpot Lasagna Soup...more casserole like....

One of my many unwritten goals this year is to try more new recipes. I feel like we have gotten into a rut with our menu and the kids wanting to eat the same things over and over and over again. So I decided to try and make a new recipe at least 2 times a month. I would ideally like to make a new recipe each week, but I am also a realist and know that that may not happen.

Well yesterday for dinner I made new recipe #2 for the year:  Crockpot Lasagna Soup. (I originally saw the recipe on Facebook, but the link will take you to the Family Fresh Meals blog that features the recipe.)

This was pretty easy to make and most of the work was done in the Crockpot. I did brown the ground beef before I put it in the Crockpot, although the original recipe said that you did not have too. I am anal about my ground beef being done though, so I had to have it browned before and that way I could drain off the excess grease.

The taste was fabulous. I served it with a little mozzarella and/or cheddar on top and with a side of garlic toast. The only downside was that it was more of a casserole texture than a soup texture. When I make it again (and I will because EVERYONE in my house liked it!), I will either use less noodles or add more liquid when I am cooking it.

Overall, it was a winner in our book and will be added to our winter/cold weather rotation!

Have you made any new recipes lately? 
Where do you find new recipes to make?

  1. That looks really good! Don't you love it when a new recipe becomes a "when" rather than an "if" I make it again!
