Happy New Year! For New Year’s day and football watching, I made this comforting and fabulous Kale Lasagna Soup recipe. It has all of my favorite ingredients including kale, Italian sausage, tomatoes, basil and carrots. This soup is filling, a one dish meal, and so quick and easy. Feel free to use gluten-free noodles or no yolk ribbon noodles–they look like mini lasagna noodles. My family loved this recipe–we ate the entire thing in one day! This is perfect for a cold winter evening, Super Bowl or anytime during the year!
