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!

  4. In a small bowl, mix all cheese ingredients.
  5. Once the noodles are finished cooking, strain them and add to the soup.

    Hi – just wondering what kind of noodles?? Lasagna ones?? I didn’t see any specified in the recipe. Thanks

      Lil' Luna

      Sorry about that!! I need to fix that! We used bowtie pasta, but honestly you could use whatever you like best! Hope that helps!! Thanks again!

    Carlene Donato

    How much of the Italian Sausage should I use?

      Lil' Luna

      You could use as much or as little as you like! I used a pound. Hope that helps! Thanks so much!

    What does “2T. Tomato paste” mean?

      Lil' Luna

      Tomato paste is found in a can or tube, in the pasta aisle and 2T is 2 tablespoons 🙂

    Windham Holtsclaw

    My family and I love this soup! Can you add the pasta to the ingredients list? I click over from Pinterest to get the ingredients for my grocery list whenever I make this and never remember I’ve forgotten to buy the pasta for it until I go to make it! Thank you! 🙂

      Lil' Luna

      Done 🙂 Thanks so much and so sorry for not having it on there! I’m so glad your family loves this soup!

    Don Waters

    What is the cheese mix? How much?

      Lil' Luna

      It’s 8 ounces of ricotta, 1/2 cup of parmesan, 1 cup of mozzarella, a pinch of pepper & salt. Hope that helps!

    Rosie

    This soup is delicious! What a great idea to add cheese mixture to bowl first. It’s like an explosion of flavor.

    Carla

    Is it a 1/2 cup of basil leaves or 1/2 teaspoon??

    Carla

    Do you use fresh basil leaves or dried basil leaves??

      Kristyn Merkley

      I like to add fresh, but really either is fine 🙂 Enjoy!

        Carla

        Thanks!! Can’t wait to this for dinner Sunday!!!
