Recipe Inspiration

My son came to me one day and said he wanted “lasagna soup” for dinner. I was really surprised by his request because honestly I had never heard of lasagna soup (I did think about our One Pot Lasagna dish that we cooked on TV though) so I was intrigued – plus one less thing for me to have to think of for the day!

He got on my phone, searched Pinterest and found a recipe from Cooking Classy that looked good to him (he’s 8 by the way!) So we ran to the grocery store and got busy making dinner together! And boy were we pleasantly surprised by his amazing suggestion! He ate like a little piggy devouring multiple bowls of this amazing lasagna soup!

Lasagna Soup Ingredients

I feel like from this cast of ingredients that the recipe will look overwhelming or take a long time to make. But I assure you it doesn’t! And it’s actually really easy to make … and best of all, it’s made in one single pot! So less cleanup afterwards!

Ingredients for one pot lasagna soup

How To Make Lasagna Soup

  1. In a large dutch oven (typically like a cast iron pot) or stockpot, brown 1 pound of lean ground beef. On medium heat, it usually takes about 5-6 minutes. In the meantime, dice your onion and garlic.

2. Add diced onions and garlic to the dutch oven when the beef has fully browned.

3. Add all three tomato bases and seasonings.

4. Slowly pour in chicken stock while stirring.

5. Cover dutch oven or stockpot with lid and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and let simmer for about 30 – 40 minutes.

6. While the soup is simmering, boil a pot of water for your lasagna noodles. Before I tossed my noodles in the boiling water I broke them up into smaller bite-sized pieces because I knew this would be a lot easier to do before they were cooked! ~ you can certainly add the noodles to the soup for the remaining 15-18 minutes of it simmering if you’d like, however, you will need to add an extra 2 cups of chicken stock as the noodles will soak up the liquid.

7. In a bowl, combine the three cheeses and stir. Set aside until soup is ready to be served.

Once the soup and noodles are ready, place as many noodles as you would like into a bowl, then ladle in the soup.

Top with the cheese blend and garnish with fresh basil (or if you are like me and totally forgot the basil, cut up some lettuce to make your dish look pretty! hahaha!)

My entire family loved this soup. It really was amazingly good! It’s rich with flavor and hearty to fill you up, but not so much that you feel like you just ate a big ol’ plate of lasagna and now are guilt ridden from bloat.

Tips For Making Lasagna Soup

  • This soup really took hardly any time to make and is great for busy weeknights. You can make it ahead of time and put it in the fridge or freezer. However, if you are going to be making it ahead of time, I would refrigerate or freeze the soup without the noodles because they could become soggy overtime…and I don’t know about you, but I do not like soggy noodles!
  • Swap out the lasagna noodles for bowtie noodles
