Dutch Oven Lasagna Soup (The Recipe for a Cozy Christmas!)

Every family has their Christmas traditions, whether it be decorating cookies one afternoon, always meeting Christmas Eve for hot cocoa and movies, or a Christmas morning treat. In my family, our tradition is lasagna for Christmas dinner. My dad would always take the time to prepare a massive lasagna that could feed a village, even when it was for a table of two sometimes.

This year, I wanted to update the tradition and try Lasagna Soup in my Lodge Dutch Oven to take the stress off his hands this year (and make suitable portions).

Have a wonderful holiday season and stay safe!
