Crockpot Turkey Lasagna Soup

Crockpot Turkey Lasagna Soup

Crockpot Turkey Lasagna Soup – This soup (stew?) was whipped up on one weekend of chaos. My friend came up for the weekend with her girls and the house was a whirl of shrieking kids, the dog barking with joy and the cat hiding in my room to avoid the aforementioned kids and dog. The noise in my house had reached sonic boom level. The adults were trying to get ready to go out for a fancy dinner and I had known I would have to feed the masses lunch at one point that day.

The masses were fed. The masses were entirely satisfied with this soup.

So my loves, put this on your menu this week. I mean it. Make it. Sometimes I can be incredibly bossy and this is one of those times, do not skip this recipe. If you want you can sub in ground beef but there is something bang on perfect about the turkey in this recipe, plus it’s a little bit healthier for you.

You can also sub in white pasta noodles instead of whole wheat (but there is something so toothsome and right about those whole wheat noodles in a soup) and use low-fat cheese if you like. Feel free to play around with it. Of course, you can always substitute lean ground beef for the turkey, but try it with the turkey at least once. You won’t be sorry!
