This Lazy Lasagna Soup won for meatless Monday! So happy with how this soup came together and it really tasted like lasagna. I decided to try it meatless using Yves Veggie Ground Original. It turned out really great and has a similar texture to meat. In a soup like this its hard to tell whether its meat or an alternative. I bet if you told no one they wouldn’t know!

Of course, as always, you can sub for ground turkey or beef or leave it out all together. I’ve been trying to add in more plant-based meals to our repertoire and this recipe will definitely be around again in the future!

I kept it classic, but this soup could really get switched up with different ingredients to totally transform it. I’d love to try a butternut squash version next.
