Lasagna Soup by Cravings of a Lunatic
Another edition in celebrating the amazing recipes we showcase each week here at #SundaySupper. Lasagna Soup by Cravings of a Lunatic caught my eye. Kim is very inspiring with her fun and creative site. She is a fellow Canadian living in Ontario and is very supportive and encouraging. There is a sweet tooth going on over there with lots of eye popping desserts like these incredibly fun Trix Krispies. They actually inspired my Fruit Loop Squares but I don’t know where I had seen them and I didn’t know Kim at the time.
When I saw this lasagna soup on #SundaySupper it made me want to grab a spoon and dive right in!!! I made it for my family and all of us loved it. What a great idea!! You get all the wonderful comfort from a lasagna but half the hassle! This soup was whipped up in no time and was absolutely cheese stretching yummy!!
There are other fine savory dishes on Kim’s site like Chicken Fajitas that were also part of #SundaySupper or Zesty Hamburger Soup that is done in the slow cooker but what intrigues me is seeing Kim’s love of Turtles!!! So back to the sweets we go with an entire category dedicated to Turtles. You will find every dessert imaginable made with the flavors of Turtles!! All in all you will love Kim’s site and be back again and again to see what she is up to I am sure!!!
