Having a vegetarian hubby, we have a lot of lasagna for diner. It’s easy to make vegetarian, the kids love it, AND it’s fun to switch up the different fillings to make new and different kinds of lasagnas.
Here is what you need: Serves 6-8
1 lb ground beef (or vegetarian crumble)
3 cups of beef broth (or vegetable broth to make vegetarian)
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 TB dried parsley
1 TB dried basil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1, 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1, 6oz can of tomato paste
1 cup V8 (or any vegetable drink)
2 cups uncooked shell pasta
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of water
Optional topping- shredded cheese
1. First mix together the can of tomatoes, and tomato paste in crockpot.
2. Next add broth, beef, garlic, parsley, basil, onion, V8 and salt/pepper.
3. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
If you like your soup to have more liquid, feel free to add some extra broth and or water when you add the noodles.
