January 9- Lasagna Soup

I found a recipe for crockpot lasagna soup and thought I'd give it a try. I'm not sure what size crockpot this recipe was meant for, but mine did not cut it. As I continued to add veggies to the pot, I quickly realized that the other ingredients were not going to fit. 

 I decided to improvise in a few areas, learned a few lessons along the way, and ended up with a pretty tasty meal in the end. My husband and I both enjoyed this.
