Are You Looking For A Slow Cooker Soup Recipe Your Entire Family Will Love? This easy, delicious Slow Cooker Lasagna is perfect on a cold day.
Why I love my Slow Cooker?
I love my slow cooker. Most of the time, you have a one-pot meal when using your slow cooker. You simply add the ingredients and let the slow cooker do all the work. I could go on and on about cooking with a slow cooker. If you would like more slow cooker recipes, you are in luck. I recently released my first eCookbook called The Southern Slow Cooker. You can find out more here. It includes over 50 slow cooker recipes.
How did I come up with this Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup recipe?
My family enjoys my slow cooker Lasagna. I decided to use the same basic recipe but make a soup version. I added lots of chicken stock with the tomato sauce. The chicken stock with the tomato sauce made the lasagna more liquid like soup. I even included the spinach I regularly put in my Lasagna. Adding a vegetable makes this soup truly a one-pot recipe. I did leave out the cheese filling I would usually layer in my lasagna.
You Cannot Have Lasagna Without Cheese
The filling is a mixture of Mozzarella cheese and Ricotta cheeses. I know what you are thinking… You cannot have lasagna without the cheese, and you are correct. To serve this slow cooker lasagna soup, I topped it with lots of Mozzarella cheese. The warm soup melts the cheese, and you have a stringy, gooey delicious topping. Even though the picture below does not show the stringy Mozzarella on top of the Lasagna soup, you will have to trust me. I honestly forgot to add it before taking the picture.
Oh, How I love Paul Prudhomme Pasta Seasoning
My secret ingredient to add to any pizza or pasta recipe is Paul Prudhommes’s Pizza Pasta Magic. I am not an affiliate with Paul Prudhomme seasonings, but I just love his products. Paul Prudhomme is a famous New Orlean’s chef, and he knows how to season food well. I can find Pizza Pasta Magic at my local Walmart and Kroger. If you do not see it in your store, just use your favorite Italian seasoning.
