Crockpot Lasagna Soup Recipe
Cold weather and slow cooker meals always seem to go together. This winter, try a healthier version of lasagna. It will still leave you feeling full without over-indulging in carbs or heavy amounts of cheese.
For family parties, try serving this soup in a plastic cup to make it portable and easier to control portions.
