* I got this recipe from familyfreshmeals I have a stovetop lasagna soup that I love but I really love the idea of doing anything in the slow cooker just because its so easy. And this soup did not disappoint it was great and the kids ate it up. I also loved that you don't have to cook the meat before hand. Making it that much more easy to throw in and go.
