This is a fairly quick soup to make as it involves a boxed lasagna mix. WONDERFULLY tasty, the whole family enjoys it! This recipe is from Family Dinners by Shari Meyer (a wonderful handmade cookbook my friend Kim shared with me!)
1 lb ground beef
1/2 c chopped onion
1 package (7 3/4 oz) lasagna dinner mix*
5 c water
1 14-oz can undrained tomatoes
2 Tbs Parmesan cheese
1 zucchini, chopped
In a Dutch oven, cook the beef and onion until it browns. Drain. Add the lasagna sauce mix, water, tomatoes, and Parmesan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 min. Add the lasagna noodles and zucchini. Cover and simmer 10 min or more until noodles are tender. Serve immediately.
*I couldn’t find this size Lasagna mix, which comes with a seasoning packet. Instead I used the larger HomeStyle Lasagna which comes with canned meat sauce. I leave off the tomatoes to compensate.
