Healthy Recipes From Twin Sisters Who Care - Lasagna Soup

** OGTV celebrates National Lasagna Day with Joy and Judy, twin sisters from a large Italian family who love to take their favorite recipes and serve them up with a healthy spin. **

When most of us think of our favorite family recipes or holiday classics, we do not necessarily think of healthy food. Casseroles, biscuits, cheesy and buttery and fried bites tend to dominate discussions of "comfort food." Well, twin sisters Joy and Judy from our original series Twin Sisters, Love & Cooking! are trying to develop a different, healthier style of comfort food, and this scrumptious Lasagna Soup recipe is a perfect example!

Joy and Judy were inspired to re-work their Italian family's favorite recipes into healthier versions after Judy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Fortunately, today, Judy is a survivor, and the twin sisters get to spend tons of quality time together—especially in the kitchen.
