Turkey Lasagna Soup
Lasagna. Not something that comes to mind when dieting, right? Correct. Lucky for you, and me, this is the third Lasagna recipe to hit ohsnapmacros and it’s just as good as the last! Think Lasagna Pasta Skillet but soup, delicious on all levels, macro friendly and perfect for cold winter nights. This Turkey Lasagna Soup is high in protein and rich and bold in flavors.
I heard someone say the other day they would NEVER cook with lean turkey. It clearly was not me.
Lean ground turkey is one of my favorite meats to cook with, if you can’t tell yet. Reason being is it takes on any flavor you want it to! Whether it’s taco meat, lasagna, breakfast “sausage,” or a burger, lean ground turkey is a winner in my book – when done right! When done wrong we’re talking cardboard. When done right, we’re talking low fat, high protein perfection.
Top your big bowl of soup with creamy ricotta and you'd never know this was well under 400 calories per serving.
Fun Fact: my three-year-old refuses to eat this soup because it’s not Lasagna Pasta Skillet. If you haven’t tried that one yet, I’d definitely suggest you give it a try. Regardless of if I strain the soup or not, she knows the difference and she will not budge. Girl knows what she likes, and the rotini noodles are a dead giveaway.
