Easy Lasagna Soup Recipe

Kitchen tools needed to make lasagna soup: When it comes to making a comfort filled soup like this one, I love making it in my 6 quart Dutch oven. You could also utilize a similar size deep soup pot. You’ll also need measuring cups and spoons, a chopping board and sharp knife for dicing the onion, mincing garlic cloves and chopping the parsley. Of course, you’ll need a large spoon for stirring and a cheese grater. A ladle is handy for pouring into soup bowls before serving. How to make homemade Lasagna Soup:

  • Sausage – Sweet or spicy Italian sausage. If you use spicy sausage omit the red pepper flakes.
  • Sauce – Crushed tomatoes, diced Italian seasoned tomatoes and tomato paste.
  • Pasta – Lasagna noodles broken into 1 inch sections.
  • Vegetables – Sweet onion and garlic.
  • Olive oil
  • Broth – Low sodium beef broth or beef stock.
  • Seasonings – Dried Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Cheese – Parmesan cheese finely grated.
  • Garnish – Chopped Italian parsley or fresh basil.
  • Toppings: Ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese , shredded mozzarella cheese.

  • You can use mild or spicy Italian sausage for this soup recipe. If you choose to use spicy sausage you can adjust the amount or omit the crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Diced sweet onion, garlic cloves and olive oil.
  • Low sodium beef broth. If using regular beef broth, adjust the mount of salt to your taste.
  • Canned crushed tomatoes in addition to canned diced tomatoes for texture.
  • Tomato paste is used for thickening the soup. You can use plain tomato paste or tomato paste that’s been seasoned with Italian seasonings such as garlic and oregano.
  • Dry Italian seasoning, table salt and black pepper plus crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little heat. Red pepper flakes can be omitted or adapted using more or less to your taste.
  • Regular lasagna noodles, broken into pieces. This recipes uses classic lasagna noodles not no-boil noodles.

  1. 5 stars
    Fantastic recipe! I stead of standard lasagna noodles, I use mini lasagna noodles–they’re tiny and require no breaking, roughly the side of a small bow-tie pasta. They’re Hy-Vee brand; I’m not sure if other brands carry a similar product.

  2. Making this tonight! Looks delicious! I am going to use half ground beef and half mild Italian sausage. Yummy!!! Thank you for the recipe 🙂 Chelsy

  3. This looks fantastic. What a great way to get the best of both lasagna and soup. This looks like the perfect hearty meal on a cold day. Going to give this a try.

  4. Earlier this week you post a recipe for strawberry cookies using a strawberry cake mix. I want to try this recipe but can’t find it. Would you please post it again. Thank you. June
