Last Nigh't's Lasagna is Tonight's Lasagna Soup

Matt hates Leftovers! Growing Up Friday Night was Cafeteria Night at his house. Cafeteria Night consisted of his Mom pulling everything from the week out of the Fridge and Heating it Up. To this day, I can not make the Man eat Leftovers. So....I have to get creative! He hasn't made it home yet, so I'll keep you posted on how this one goes over.

Instead of just heating up last night's lasagna (remember it served 9), I turned it into Lasagna Soup. This is so easy! Take your Lasagna that you refrigerated over night. Cut 1/2 in. strips vertically through the lasagna. Then go back and cut 1/2 in. strips horizontally through the dish. Dump all of this into pot and pour two cans of chicken broth over the lasagna. Let simmer for 3o minutes until the lasagna pieces begin to crumble into the soup. At this point you can add more broth if you think the soup is too thick.

Next, I took some French Bread and cut it into 1/2" slices. Toast lightly in the toaster and then drizzle with olive oil, garlic salt and mozzarella cheese. Place them on a cookie sheet under the broiler until brown. Serve soup, cheese toasts and a salad with a vinaigrette dressing for a meal.
WA-LAAA You are Finished!

So, what time do you normally eat? I'm thinking we'll just walk on down to your house for dinner each night! Love your recipes!

Mike lives for leftovers, but I don't like them either. It must be a cousin thing.... ;-)
