One Pot Lasagna Soup

This super simple one-pot recipe is just as satisfying as a large slice of lasagna but not nearly as expensive. It also helps use broken pieces of lasagna noodles or mostly empty boxes of pasta. Perfect for a pantry clean out!

I became vegan for a couple of different reasons, one because it feels good. I feel like I am functioning optimally and looking my best. Two because it is one of the most sustainable decisions you can make. I want to be more sustainable. I make little changes here and there to reduce, reuse, recycle and refuse. I’ve signed up for email only receipts, use reusable grocery bags, recycle as much as possible and use every thing. I’m talking using a paintbrush to get the last bit of lip balm. That’s part of the reason why I like this recipe. I never knew what to do with the bits of broken lasagna noodles (or even bits and pieces of different shaped noodles!) and this is a perfect way to use everything!
