This yummy soup is so easy to make. It makes a big hearty pot of Italian deliciousness. You can skip using the sausage if you want and go all ground beef or use all sausage. Whatever yanks your chain. If you like lasagna then this soup is for YOU! And just like lasagna, the leftovers are great! Our daughter and her kids stopped by after I made this and each had a bowl. They yommed it down! You gotta make this....ASAP!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
