TASTES LIKE LASAGNA SOUP


My niece and I share in the meal preparation for the guys
busy bringing in the harvest.  Inspired by Bobby Deen, she made this
 big pot of yummy soup that was exactly as the recipe title suggests.
This picture reflects a double recipe.


The first spoonful ... so very flavorful ... served with a crusty roll!
I was delighted to savor this bowl of tasty soup.


If you like lasagna, you will love this soup.
Bobby, she did you proud!
