Lasagna Soup Recipe – Hearty and comforting lasagna turned into a soup.  Ready in just minutes and great for any night of the week!  

As soon as it gets chilly I am all about soup!  It can be something in the crock pot like Crock Pot Chili or it can be ready in just minutes on the stove top.  This Chicken Enchilada Chili is a favorite we have been making for over 10 years. 

This lasagna soup recipe is perfect for those cold nights, and is ready in just minutes on the stovetop. Super comforting like a hearty slice of lasagna you know and love, but in a bowl and you can have ready in no time. 

Lasagna Soup makes for quick, easy and comforting dinner

 

Spaghetti & Meatball Soup is kind of what turned me onto this soup.  I mean, if you can turn a hearty plate of spaghetti into a soup, why not lasagna.  Complete with a ricotta and mozzarella mixture that is to die for!  You are not missing out on anything.  

And if a hearty bowl of soup isn’t enough, this Cheesy Garlic Bread makes the perfect side dish.  Or you could do Olive Garden Breadsticks to really dip in a soak up all that glorious broth.  

Make classic lasagna into an easy and delicious soup the whole family will love

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.  

Lasagna soup has all the taste of classic lasagna in a hearty soup you can enjoy any night of the week!

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.

  1. This looks awesome! Can this soup be made in a crock pot? Sometimes on the Saturdays I work, we do a “crock pot soup lunch”. One of my co-workers actually asked if there was a lasagne soup recipe.

    1. To do it in the crock pot, I would brown the ground beef and onion together, Then add everything except the pasta and cheese topping to the crock pot and let cook for 3-4 hours on high or low for 6-7 hours. I would cook the noodles ahead of time, and then just stir them in for the last 15-20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
