Yummy Lasagna Soup 👌🏽😋

Hi! It’s a new day & a new week ! I hope everyone is doing great. Not sure about you, but I tend to scroll through TikTok on my downtime, lol. I ended up finding this lasagna soup recipe and it looked so good I had to give it a try. I wanted to share it because it honestly came out so delicious. I enjoyed it & so did my youngest son even though he isn’t a fan of tomatoes! 🙌🏽

All Ingredients pictured except for heavy cream & spices

Ingredients:

  • Italian sausage or ground beef ( I used a pound of both to make it more meaty & I loved how it came out )
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese, Italian cheese blend, & parmesan
  • Pasta sauce ( which ever is your favorite)
  • Chicken & Beef broth
  • Diced tomatoes ( 1 can is fine unless you really like tomatoes 😉 )
  • Lasagna noodles
  • Spices ( Salt, pepper, tomato bouillon, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, oregano, basil )

Directions:

Brown your meat ; I used minced garlic and chopped onions and seasoned it with garlic salt & pepper

Drain meat

In a pot add your meat, add pasta sauce ( I used the whole bottle) , add 1 carton of chicken broth & only half of the beef broth ( save the other half for when you reheat because the soup will thicken) , add diced tomato’s & crushed up lasagna noodles. Cover and let it cook about 8-10 minutes.

Make ricotta mixture; ricotta cheese, both cheeses & seasonings of your choice.

Add ricotta mixture to soup and heavy whipping cream

Put heat on high and let it cook about 5 minutes. Check and make sure your noodles are soft and the taste is to your liking.

Then enjoy !!

Visiting Knott’s Berry Farm for the Boysenberry festival! 😁😋

I was super excited to take the kids to go check this out…enjoy some time together & of course have some good food. We had year passes a while back, but we never did the festival before so I was happy when I saw that they still were doing it this year. It’s going on until May 2nd & I highly recommend it! The cost is $45 for adults ( 5 tastings) & $20 for children between 3-11 (3 tastings). We went on a Friday and the hours were 12pm-8pm, we didn’t show up until after 4pm and we stayed till closing and it was perfect timing, the only thing is it was pretty chilly at night. I wasn’t sure how much food was going to be given for each taste, so we all picked different items and pretty much shared. I was surprised that by the end of it we were all so full. The rides are of course closed but they still have people dressed up in character ( they laugh & make jokes with the guest its very funny) , you can purchase items & also play games. My kids had a lot of fun & we all enjoyed the different foods🤍

My world 💙💙

I try to find things to do that look like fun for my oldest who is 16 & sometimes has his “teenager attitude” lol 🙄 who can relate ?? He told me he really enjoyed going, so that made me feel good.

To be honest all the food was very good, the funnel cake & fries were my fave’s! My oldest loved the mac n cheese bites with tater tots, but I wasn’t able to take a picture of those ☹ I did try to take pictures of most of the food (see below)

Both of my boys also loved the Ice float !

There are a lot of benches and tables to sit at around the park so there is plenty of room & also lots of sanitizer👍🏽. You do have to keep your mask on while walking around, but that is the usual and everyone was on the same page.

Has anyone gone to the boysenberry festival, if so what did you think? ( There is another month left ! ) or will you be going before it ends? Comment below.
