How to Make Lasagna Soup
- This is a really easy soup to make. You start by browning your meat and onions together. I like to use ground beef, because that is what my mom always used in her lasagna. But you can definitely use Italian sausage or even half and half if that is what you like.
- Next you add in the broth, all the tomato products and the seasonings. You want to mix it until it is nice and smooth and then bring it to a simmer.
- Now you have a choice. You can either cook the noodles in with the soup or you can cook them separately and add them to the bowls you are serving. If you are going to eat the whole pot right away, then cooking the noodles in the soup is the easiest. If you are counting on leftovers, then cooking them separately is best. If you leave them in the soup they will soak up all the liquid and get mushy.
- While the noodles are cooking mix together the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and the seasoning. This is what gives you your nice creamy and authentic lasagna tasting soup!
- After the noodles are cooked you are ready to eat! Just ladle everything in to bowls and serve with a large dollop of the ricotta mixture on top. This will melt into the soup and make it extra delicious.
Can you Freeze Lasagna Soup
Yes you can, but it is best to make and store the noodles separately. I would store the soup in one container, the cooked noodles in another, and then the cheese mixture separately as well. Then when you want to serve, just thaw and reheat the soup and noodles.
How do I Cook the Noodles in the Soup?
Add 1 cup of broth to the soup and then just break the noodles directly into the pot. They will cook as the soup simmers. You will want to stir to make sure they are separated.
I like to only do this if I am serving the soup right away. If I know we aren’t going to eat it all, I cook the noodles separately so they don’t absorb too much liquid and get mushy.
Soup really is comfort food at my house and there are so many ways you can enjoy it. This lasagna soup recipe is one of my son’s most requested every year.
