Lasagna Soup

Winter; Cold, grey and shorter days, this is the perfect thing to dig into.

Today I just had one of those days where I wanted something different and comforting, like a big hug in a bowl. I don’t know what it is about cold winter days, I feel so lazy and tired and just don’t want to be lingering around the kitchen for a long time.
I knew exactly what I wanted though. I wanted all the yummyness of Lasagne in the form of a Soup! It’s doable, and tastes divine! Best thing about it is that you can add veggies according per your taste and use any type of Pasta.
