I have been trying out recipes that I can freeze and take to work and eat over a longer period of time. I had really been wanting to try a lasagna soup and settled on this one. It wasn't great with the first bowl, but it grew on me over time. Best of all, it was a crock pot recipe so it was really easy. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the remaining vegetable juice (as I don't like it enough to drink it).
