Lasagna Soup

Standard

No this does not have pasta in it, BUT if the kiddos wanted it (or even you), just throw in some whole wheat pasta and call it a post workout meal! This has all the flavor of lasagna but is way easier to make. This is basically the Clean Kitchen Spaghetti Sauce recipe with an extra 4 cups of broth added to it and a special cheese mixture to dollop on top.
