Lasagna is one of my favourite foods to eat. In general I love pasta but the cheesy saucy goodness of Lasagna is my weakness. For those who are lovers of really hearty soups and Lasagna this is a soup you definitely have to try. Since I am a working mom, I love to make dishes that are both simplified and easy to prepare. I also like to make sure that the less dishes I have to wash the better it is for clean up time. Therefore I have made this a One Pot Lasagna Soup everything in one pot!
The list of ingredients are pretty much similar to what you would use to make a casserole type Lasagna the only real difference is the way its put together. Its a delicious and hearty meal and I can guarantee that the family will enjoy it just as much as mine does.

Add remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in pot, add chopped yellow onion and saute until it begins to sweat. Add in chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste,fresh basil, oregano, fresh thyme, sugar, parsley, and continue to cook to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 15- 20 minutes.
