Lasagna Soup | Cooking Classy

Do you like lasagna? If you answered yes, or even no, you’re going to want to make this soup! This is definitely one of my new favorite soups. It tastes just like lasagna but in soup form, so how could it not be a new favorite?

With this delicious Lasagna Soup recipe you can use half Italian sausage in place of half of the ground beef. You could also replace half of the parmesan cheese with Romano cheese. Then of course, as listed the garlic amount is to taste, I love garlic so I like a lot but not everyone does. Fresh herbs can be used in place of any of the dry, just triple the amounts if using fresh. It’s winter and fresh herbs aren’t as convenient as dried so I went with most all dried for this recipe, but I’m sure in the summer I’ll want to try it out with fresh basil and oregano.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

This simple recipe may look rather complex due to the long list of ingredients but it’s mostly just those dried herbs and plenty of cheese so don’t miss out on this recipe thinking it’s too much. It’s very simple and very delicious! I have the feeling it’s going to become one of your new favorites too. Enjoy!

Yield: About 5 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil , divided
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion , diced (2 cups)
  • 3 - 5 garlic cloves , to taste, minced
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp 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 tsp granulated sugar
  • 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 mozzarella cheese (5 oz)
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese (2 oz)
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese

Instructions

  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 (you can drain it all if you want it to be healthier I just like the little bit of flavor a small amount of the fat gives). 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, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano, rosemary, fennel seeds, thyme, sugar, 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, reserving 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 mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls, dollop with a large scoop of the cheese mixture and sprinkle with chopped parsley (you can help the cheese melt better by cooking in the microwave after dolloping over soup for a bit or you could put the soup in oven safe bowl, top with cheese mixture and set under broiler to melt well. Or just stir into very hot soup and it should melt well).

    It was delicious! I will be making this again. I put Cheesy Texas toast with it. October 24, 2018 at 2:49pm Reply

  • Laura: I have made this several times now. I often make a double batch when I have company comping over. Flavorful and simple. I just add the noodles to the soup directly and let them cook that way. I never add fennel, just because it’s not something I keep on hand. Great recipe! October 16, 2018 at 11:17pm Reply
