Lasagna Soup featuring KRAFT Parmesan Cheese and HUNT’S Tomatoes


Have guys you tried lasagna soup yet? I hadn’t tried it until just recently, and now it’s a family favorite. It’s become a regular dinner entree for us, and once you’ve made it you will definitely understand why. This recipe uses basic ingredients, it is simple to prepare and it’s nearly guaranteed to to be thoroughly enjoyed. This is lasagna in soup form.

Today I’ve made this soup featuring two ingredients that many of you already have in your kitchen, KRAFT Parmesan Cheese and HUNT’S Diced Tomatoes. These two products are authentic recipe staples that have a flavorful kick! When these two items come together, you know incredible things are going to happen. Not only are they both delicious but they are both so convenient. They cut out a lot of prep work (like boiling, peeling and dicing tomatoes and grating a wedge of parmesan cheese) without cutting out flavor.

Kraft Parmesan Cheese and Hunt's Tomatoes

I love that the HUNT’S tomatoes are 100% natural tomatoes that are flashed steamed and not treated with harsh chemicals. The flash steaming seems to help them retain as much as of that fresh, vibrant flavor as possible. HUNT’S Diced Tomatoes really are better than the other brands I’ve tried.

KRAFT Parmesan cheese, well we all know and love the stuff, right? It’s what Mom used, it’s what Grandma used. KRAFT uses only 100% grated parmesan in their cheese which gives this soup the perfect, flavorful, finishing touch it needs.

If you are looking for an exciting recipe everyone will love, I highly recommend trying out this soup. Enjoy!lasagna soup alltogether


Lasagna Soup featuring Kraft Parmesan and Hunt’s Tomatoes

Yield: About 5 servings

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil , divided
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion , diced (2 cups)
  • 4 garlic cloves , to taste, minced
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can HUNT'S Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can HUNT'S Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp HUNT'S Tomato Paste
  • 1 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary , crushed
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds , crushed
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley , plus more for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 8 lasagna noodles , broken into bite size pieces (6.5 oz)
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded KRAFT Mozzarella Cheese (5 oz)
  • 1/2 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese (2 oz)
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese


  1. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, crumble beef into pot, season with salt and pepper to taste and cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Drain majority of fat from beef and set aside. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in pot, add chopped yellow onion and saute until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add in garlic and saute 30 seconds longer. Add in chicken broth, HUNT'S Petite Diced Tomatoes, HUNT'S Crushed Tomatoes, HUNT's Tomato Paste, basil, oregano, rosemary, fennel seeds, thyme, parsley, the cooked ground beef and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring just to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare lasagna noodles according to directions listed on package (don't overly salt the water as some of the water will be added to the soup later). Reserve 1 cup pasta water before draining pasta.
  3. Add cooked pasta to soup along with 1/2 cup - 1 cup pasta water as desired. In a mixing bowl, using a fork, stir together KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese with ricotta cheese.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls, dollop each serving with a large scoop of the cheese mixture, sprinkle KRAFT shredded Mozzarella Cheese and chopped parsley. Serve warm.

  • Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness: I lovelovelove lasagna, but I hate how it takes my whole life to make from scratch. This looks like it eliminates that, and I love the soupy spin!
    Plus, that cheese……yes! January 27, 2014 at 5:24am Reply

  • Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction: I really need to give lasagna soup a try! This sounds like some great comfort food! January 27, 2014 at 12:16pm Reply

  • Serene@HouseofYumm: Yum!! And you’re so right!! I do have those items at home now! What a delicious way to use them :) thanks for sharing! January 27, 2014 at 8:44pm Reply

  • Rob Long: This looks so yummy…I can’t wait to try it! But we’ll probably use the Parmesan petals from CostCo. I realize a CostCo product doesn’t line up with the Kraft sponsorship of this post, but you should try the parmesan petals at CostCo sometime. Honestly, we prefer it to the grated parmesan :)

  • Sel: i had to laugh to myself…..i have been making a type of soup like this, only i use raviolis instead of lasagna…..serve it the same way, though i do add a bit of spinach and basil leaves. :) January 29, 2014 at 8:09pm Reply

  • Mindy: This recipe is terrific! I’ve made a card for my recipe box (tried and truly amazing!). But I picked up low fat Ricotta and after mixing, it was “blech.” But maybe because of the low fat type of product. So, in a pinch, I substituted a small
    mound of cottage cheese, with some cheddar and it was still amazing. Keep up the good work, I rely heavily on this blog! :)) February 1, 2014 at 4:03pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m so glad you liked this recipe Mindy! Thanks for your feedback. I’m happy to hear you enjoy my blog too :)! February 2, 2014 at 11:28am Reply

  • Jill: I made this tonight using gluten free lasagna noodles and subbing sausage for the beef. Delicious! This definitely makes more than five servings, in my opinion. Has anyone tried freezing the leftovers? February 8, 2014 at 7:53pm Reply

  • Emily B: I made this tonight but with ground turkey and low fat cheese and low fat ricotta than I added fresh spinach and zucchini, it was AMAZING!!!! February 10, 2014 at 5:11pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’ll have to try it with ground turkey to make it a little healthier. Love the additions you added too. Thanks for your comment Emily! February 11, 2014 at 10:29am Reply

  • Wendy: Can I add all the cheeses into the big pot of soup or does it have to be done in individual bowls? Will the consistency be okay for reheating? February 27, 2014 at 12:11pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You probably could but I think it looks more appealing adding to individual servings plus I think it would reheat better as the cheese will melt in half the time it takes to warm the soup. Hope you love it Wendy! March 11, 2014 at 10:43am Reply

  • Jessica: Hey, it looks like in your pictures you are adding the raw noodles to the soup pot? IN the recipe it says to prepare in their own boiling water…

    If you just put them in the pot, how long does it take to cook in the sauce/soup?

    Making this tonight, looks excellent!! March 13, 2014 at 10:42am Reply

    • Jaclyn: They are cooked noodles – pictures can be deceiving :). If you did add them to the soup without cooking I’d add in some water since they’ll absorb some of the liquid. It should take about the same amount of time to cook them in the soup as it would on their own. March 13, 2014 at 3:22pm Reply
