BEST Lasagna Soup Recipe
Hello! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to tackle a new week. For me, Mondays can sometimes be discouraging. I think of the 5 days ahead and don’t love the idea of trying to figure out what meals I’m going to make. Not sure how folks ever did it without the internet. Pinterest, and this blog, have saved my bacon many many times. I’m not sure why, but Fall always seems easier as I do my meal planning for the week. Cooler weather brings soup, and soup is always a simple dinner idea. I’m always looking for new soup recipes to add to the dinner rotation, and recently we found this Lasagna Soup recipe!
First of all, is there a soul out there who doesn’t love lasagna? Let’s be honest, my kids will eat pretty much anything with noodles in it, but lasagna especially is a favorite dish at our house. Now picture all the tasty Italian flavors contained within a lasagna, but in SOUP form. If you’re thinking it sounds like a dream, you’re absolutely right. This Lasagna soup was so tasty, with the flavors of ricotta cheese and Italian sausage all mixed in with noodles and a tomato base. Not to mention, it was filling as well!
Love that you can still get that delicious ricotta in this soup!!
How to make Lasagna Soup:
- Start off by browning the sausage in the olive oil for about 6-8 minutes. Add the seasonings and cook for 1 additional minute. Then add the tomato paste and stir.
- Add diced tomatoes, basil, and chicken stock, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
- While the soup is simmering, cook the noodles according to packaged directions.
- In a small bowl, mix all cheese ingredients.
- Once the noodles are finished cooking, strain them and add to the soup.
To serve, add a small dollop of the cheese mix to the bottom of your bowl and slowly add soup. Garnish with mozzarella and basil if you like!
