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.

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


  • 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


  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).

  • Sharon Bronk: Loved this. Had to adjust spices-the only tomatoes I had already had basil & oregano.
    Used non-boil lasagna noodles-added along with everything else-were perfect. Next time I might add a little Italian sausage. January 6, 2014 at 7:09pm Reply

  • Priscilla: I made this soup tonight, we all loved it! My picky eaters ate it all including hubby. Lol They said its better than lasagna. The only thing I had was no boiling noodles and just let them cook for the 20 min. and it came out good. Thanks for the recipe got it off Pinterest. :-) January 14, 2014 at 6:42pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m happy to hear your family enjoyed this Priscilla! Thanks for your feedback! January 14, 2014 at 7:33pm Reply

    • Mary B: I took your advice – added the no boiling noodles at the end for the 20 minutes and it worked perfectly! :) Thanks for the suggestion! November 12, 2014 at 5:04pm Reply

  • Lauren: Do you think this would be good with cottage cheese instead of ricotta? That is usually what I use to make my lasagna because I’m not a big ricotta cheese fan. January 17, 2014 at 2:22pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think the texture would probably be strange in this soup. The ricotta isn’t so chunky so it melts in nicely. You could probably just omit it and add in more mozzarella and parmesan though. January 17, 2014 at 5:42pm Reply

      • Lauren: I will have to say I actually made it tonight! I used the cottage cheese and it was AMAZING!! Thank you soooo much for posting this recipe…it’s now my new favorite soup (and your page is my new go to for recipes). Thanks again! January 17, 2014 at 7:35pm Reply

  • Kim: I made this tonight and it was wonderful. I did make some adjustments. I wanted a thicker soup so used 2 lbs of italian sausage and doubled the noodles and used a 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes. Also towards the end of cooking soup I stirred in the riccota and it made it much creamier and just added the other cheese when I served it. A keeper for sure! January 26, 2014 at 10:20pm Reply

  • Megan: I really dislike lumps of tomato in my soups, I usually use my stick blender to smooth it all out when it used diced tomatoes from a can. Can i do that in this case or would it change the texture of the soup? Thank you!! January 28, 2014 at 6:39pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I would just use some more crushed tomatoes because a stick blender would also blend the meat even if you did it before adding lasagna noodles. I hope you do make this soup Megan, it’s one of my favorites! January 28, 2014 at 7:43pm Reply

  • Cindy: Jaclyn ~ Ok here goes, I have read the reviews and have to make this, this afternoon… I went to special market and got 1/2# fresh Italian sausage with fennel and basil as an addition to the burger! Only have plum tomatoes with basil so I will crush them myself, and have “campanelle” pasta (baby lasagna noodles). Will let you know how it turns out, but while going over the recipe in the grocery store 2 people asked me for the recipe! Can’t wait, its so cold and windy here, this is a great comfort zuppa!

    • Jaclyn: I’m so glad you were able to make it gluten free Noelle! Glad you liked it! March 23, 2014 at 5:12pm Reply

  • Sharon B: Delicious! I made this last night, and it is truly deconstructed lasagna in a bowl!

    Here’s a question, though: How would you adapt this to use no-boil noodles? I ended up making a change at the line of scrimmage because I didn’t have regular noodles. While you could cook the noodles right in the sauce while it simmers, you wouldn’t have any pasta water with that method.

    I ended up using rigatoni noodles, which turned out perfectly fine, though.

    Thank you; will definitely make this again! March 18, 2014 at 12:55pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I would just add some water to make up for what the no boil noodles will absorb. Then as far as the pasta water goes, you should be fine to use tap water you’ll just need a little more salt. I’m so glad you liked this Sharon! March 23, 2014 at 5:25pm Reply

      • Keri: I just inhaled my first bowl of lasagna soup. Thanks for the recipe! I wanted to mention that I lazily dumped my dry, regular old, lasagna noodles in the boiling soup, then added some extra water to the pot to compensate for what the pasta would absorb. It worked perfectly and saved me from another dirty dish! December 10, 2015 at 3:35pm Reply

  • Stephanie: This soup looks absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try it. Do you know if it is freezeable? I’m wondering how the noodles would hold up if frozen. Thanks for any input you can give! September 16, 2014 at 6:11pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think it would freeze okay without the noodles, I think they’d get really soggy if frozen and thawed. September 16, 2014 at 8:39pm Reply

      • Carolyn Martens: When I’ve frozen dishes with any type pasta, they get mushy so I don’t freeze those dishes even tho it would sure be handy. September 17, 2015 at 4:23pm Reply

  • Danna Deering: I made this in a pressure cooker and everyone had a fit over it. I added mushrooms and Italian sausage and .5 C of red wine, also used whole wheat lasagne noodles. Since I was cooking the noodles in the soup and using a pressure cooker I added another 2 cups of broth. Of course, the cheeses were added to the individual bowls at the time it was served. It only took 5 mins in the pressure cooker (onions, garlic and meats were browned in the pot first). I will be making this many more times, thanks for the amazing recipe.

  • Amy LeTourneur: Try using mafalda noodles in this – they’re essentially miniature lasagna noodles, so they’re perfect for this soup! San Giorgio makes them so they should be easy to find in the dried pasta section of most grocery stores. September 25, 2014 at 1:08pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I actually tried to buy those for this but couldn’t find them anywhere, was it a chain grocery store you bought them at by chance? September 25, 2014 at 1:47pm Reply

  • Shannon: I made this tonight. It was a big hit with the family. I made two changes though – I omitted the ricotta cheese because it’s not a favorite with the kids and I used spiral macaroni because I didn’t have lasagna noodles. It was delicious! I’d like to try it again with the right noodles and ricotta for myself! September 29, 2014 at 2:31pm Reply

  • Jenna: This looked delicious so my husband and I had to try it out. After reading the comments that other people made we decided to use half low fat hamburger meat and half Italian sausage. We also omitted the Rosemary since I am not a fan of this spice. It’s so delicious. To make it for spaghetti sauce we use a little less broth and let it simmer a little longer so that the sauce is a little thicker. We’ve been using different types of noodles to see what we like best. So far everything has been delicious. Thank you so much for posting this! September 30, 2014 at 11:06am Reply

  • Gail: Delicious! Didn’t have fennel seeds so I left them out and only had dry parsley not fresh. Even my picky eater loved it!!! October 1, 2014 at 3:49pm Reply

  • Shari Kelley: I made this soup for dinner tonight, and absolutely loved it! I especially liked all the spices in it. Your recipes are so flavorful. And the ricotta is such a great addition. It really balanced out the acidity of the tomatoes. Thanks so much! October 20, 2014 at 9:13pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m so glad you liked it Shari :)! Thanks for your feedback! October 21, 2014 at 7:20pm Reply

  • Tamesha: Is there a particular reason you don’t add the ricotta and other cheeses directly to the soup? I wanted to make this for lunch this week but don’t want to bring additional Tupperware for cheeses everyday. Also could you cook the noodles in the soup and add additional water to the pot? Let me know. I will be trying this out very soon! November 2, 2014 at 3:28pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I suppose you could but it will just kind of make the soup cloudy if stirred in plus I just prefer the texture of it melting on top. November 2, 2014 at 8:54pm Reply

  • Robin: This soup is very tasty. I just made it today for the first time. According to, this soup is 551 calories per serving and says it has 5 servings. I used whole grain lasagna noodles and this pot of soup will be way more than 5 servings for me so I halved the calories today when I added it to myfitnesspal. November 2, 2014 at 5:46pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I always just guess on the servings so I could be way off :). Thanks for calculating it though. I’m glad you liked it! November 2, 2014 at 8:52pm Reply

  • Samantha: Can I do this soup in a slowcooker? November 8, 2014 at 8:41am Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should work just fine. I would saute the onions and beef then add to slow cooker with other ingredients (minus noodles/cheeses) and then at the end I’d add the pasta with more water to make up for what they’ll absorb and cook on HIGH until tender (or boil separate on the stove top then add). I hope you love it! November 10, 2014 at 8:32pm Reply

  • Kathy McCarthy: my husband won’t eat the cheeses if added on top. Can I melt them into the soup before serving? November 9, 2014 at 12:06pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You should be okay to do that but I would add on low heat. It will make it somewhat cloudy but should still taste delicious! November 10, 2014 at 8:26pm Reply

  • Mary: I made this last weekend in luo of the “arctic blast” heading down south. I tend to follow traditonal red sauces using only fresh basil. So I opted to leave out the dried herbs all together. It’s just my flavor preffrence. I doubled the recipe so I could freeze quart size containers and will cook noodles and add along with the cheese mixture as needed. It was absolutely delicious!!! Looking forwad to next bowl tomorrow!!! Thanks for sharing!!! November 10, 2014 at 3:34pm Reply

  • Mary: Why did my previous comment disappear? I posted my review earlier today and now it’s no longer there…hmmm.

  • Mary B: I made this tonight for dinner – and it was an instant hit! I used no boil noodles – and as Priscilla above suggested, I added it at the end with all the of the ingredients for the 20 minutes. it worked perfectly! I didn’t use fennel seeds b/c I just don’t happen to be a fan, but I did put in a can of mushrooms, per request of my 6 year old.

    My mom grew up in an Italian neighborhood – she learned how to make homemade lasagna from her best friends mom. She LOVES her lasagna. When she tried this, she fell in love! She told me she may never make lasagna again, esp knowing it all was made in one pot! She esp loved the cheese mixture at the end. :)

    This will be a new meal in our home! What a wonderful hit. We added a caeser salad and some crusty bread to our meal! THANK YOU! can’t wait to try more of your recipes! :) November 12, 2014 at 5:12pm Reply

  • Alicia: Hi! I cannot wait to make this. We are not big fans of chunky tomatoes. Could we add another can of crushed tomatoes to supplement the can of diced or should we stick to one can of crushed and leave out the diced altogether?

    Thanks! January 27, 2015 at 10:07am Reply

    • Jaclyn: You should be fine to just use equal parts crushed, it will be a little more soupy though so you could maybe even cut back on the amount a little. January 27, 2015 at 5:17pm Reply

  • Recipe of the Week: Recipe Round-Up Edition | Michael & Helen Packard: […] Lasagna Soup – It can be hard to find soup recipes that are filling and delicious, but this soup fits the bill; we didn’t even serve any bread with it, because it really is like having a piece of lasagna in a bowl. The only thing we changed about the recipe was to leave out the ricotta (didn’t have any), and to stir the other cheeses into the soup before serving. […] January 31, 2015 at 9:11am Reply

  • Andrea: i made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I used turkey burger to lighten it up a little and added mushrooms and some red wine for extra flavor. Served it with garlic knots, definitely a recipe worth making again. January 31, 2015 at 7:09pm Reply

  • Terri: Hi Jaclyn – Love the idea of this soup and definitely going to make it. Had one question for you – why did you choose chicken broth as opposed to beef broth? No biggie, just curious.

    Thanks!!! February 11, 2015 at 7:08am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I didn’t want it to have an overpowering beefy flavor but really either one should work okay. February 23, 2015 at 6:38pm Reply

  • Taryn: Can you use water in place of the broth? I’m not a broth fan. February 23, 2015 at 11:41am Reply

    • Jaclyn: You could use a vegetable broth but if you don’t like that either than water will work it just won’t be quite as flavorful. February 23, 2015 at 6:19pm Reply

  • brandi: Could you put this in a crock pot and let it cook on low. It looks delicious but I don’t have alot of time righr before dinner so if i could put it in a crockpot it would be alot easier for me. February 26, 2015 at 1:17pm Reply

  • Bianca: can I cook the noodles in the soup or do I have to boil them on the side? March 11, 2015 at 7:54pm Reply

  • Brandi: I have made this soup twice. Today I added a little grated zucchini for some extra nutrients. I omit the rosemary because im not a big fan. It is delicious and my 4 year old absolutely loves it. Super easy and quick alternative to lasagna when you are craving the flavor but don’t want to put in all the effort. Thank you for the yummy soup staple! October 10, 2015 at 7:50pm Reply

  • Leah: This is the second time I made this–first time I followed the recipe exactly (DELICIOUS!), second time I made this I used ground turkey, fresh oregano and no fresh parsley. I admit that your recipe using ground beef was tastier and the dried oregano and fresh parsley made a whole lot of difference. But both times the soup was very good! October 26, 2015 at 9:43pm Reply

  • Sheri: Just found your site and tried this recipe last night. It was truly amazing! Everyone loved it (and my crowd doesn’t give high marks unless it’s really good). I’m checking out all your other recipes. Thank you! December 17, 2015 at 10:31am Reply

  • Coya Pack: I made this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it – much more than I expected to! I followed the recipe as printed but cut the amount of the spices down and did not use the ricotta cheese. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you. January 29, 2016 at 9:21am Reply

  • Liz: This was delicious! My 4 yr old gobbled it up too and there was plenty for leftovers. We even froze some and it thawed out great, still the same consistency and great taste. Thank you! February 4, 2016 at 6:39am Reply

  • Nicole: I must be missing something?? I love love love cooking classy!!! Make stuff all the time so I thought this would be amazing. I followed the to a T and it was bland :( really had no flavoring or taste. I will attempt again but I’m not adding the cup of noodle water at the end. February 6, 2016 at 7:48am Reply

  • Jacqueline: Just about to make this soup, sounds delicious but I’m having trouble adding chicken broth with sausage and beef? Wouldn’t beef broth be better?
    Thanks March 1, 2016 at 2:26pm Reply

  • Kristin H: I have what might be a dumb question. I really like Italian sausage in my lasagna, so if I add it to the soup, instead of the ground beef, do I still need the fennel seeds? I’ve never used fennel seeds, but I thought they were in the sausage. I could be way off, but I thought I’d ask before I make this. TIA! March 1, 2016 at 5:54pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Italian sausage usually does have fennel seeds in it so yes you could omit it if you are using Italian sausage in place of the beef. I hope you love this soup Kristin! March 1, 2016 at 6:18pm Reply

      • Kristin H: Thanks so much for the speedy response, Jaclyn! My husband is grocery shopping right now, and I was able to call him and tell him to take the fennel seeds off the list. I’ll let you know what we think! March 1, 2016 at 6:35pm Reply

  • Kristin H: This soup is delicious, Jaclyn! I did use Italian sausage instead of ground beef and left out the fennel seeds. That was the only thing I did differently. It’s definitely a keeper. Very flavorful. Tastes just like a bowl of lasagna. It’s a keeper! Thanks so much! March 5, 2016 at 8:52pm Reply

  • Wendy M.: This is a great recipe! I prefer it as is written, but sometimes to appease my extremely picky kids I just throw a jar of good quality organic marinara, a can of diced Italian tomatoes, and the can of tomato paste into the food processor and turn it into smooth soup with no chunks. I also use part hamburger and part Italian sausage. Either way it’s a great filling meal and it is delicious!! March 17, 2016 at 4:31pm Reply

  • Steph C.: This is the second time I’m making this and it was spectacular. I added roasted garlic to it to give it some pizazz and I used ground chicken thighs that I got from Whole Foods which was significantly cheaper than ground turkey. This will definitely be a staple in the house. March 27, 2016 at 5:26pm Reply

    Can red beans be added instead of beef . Yup for vegetarian soup. Can the cheese be reduced . September 27, 2016 at 11:30am Reply

  • Lindsay: I am making this as we speak… Wondering if I can just add in the lasagna noodles as I have with other soups? November 18, 2016 at 2:32pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes, sorry for the late response. You can but I like to add them separate if you don’t plan on eating it all right away because the noodles start to soak up the broth and get soggy. If you do add it to the soup you do need to add some extra broth or water to make up for what it soaks up when cooking until tender. November 18, 2016 at 11:38pm Reply

      • Lindsay: Thanks for the comment. I’ll try that for next time! It turned out yummy 😋 November 19, 2016 at 1:48pm Reply

  • Sonja: I’ve made this twice and it’s wonderful! The first time I made it I didn’t have any ricotta o hand, so I cooked up some frozen ravioli & served that with the soup–it worked great! Next time around I’ll use tortellini as they are bite-sized. I LOVE that this has all of the flavors of lasagna without the hours of cooking. Winner-winner-Italian-dinner!

  • Lisa: My daughter LOVES this recipe!!! We’ve made it a few times now and it’s in our favorites for cold weather soup days. Its good for leftovers too…only thing is don’t add all the noodles in because they expand and get a very soft texture if left in the soup for leftovers!! June 19, 2017 at 11:20am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for the great review! July 11, 2017 at 2:19pm Reply

  • Tracey: I love making soups and I have a passion for pasta, so this recipe is the best of both worlds. I didn’t change a thing even though the thym threw me a curveball but it worked. I was afraid the fennel would be too pizza tasting but it didn’t take away from the lasagna taste. My husband, son, and son-in-law (who doesn’t care for pasta or tomatoes) raved about it. The added cheese at the end is a must for the true lasagna experience (there is such a thing). I doubled the recipe to feed a large family and the only drawback is that it thickens up after being in the fridge for leftovers. It’s a keeper! September 10, 2017 at 9:23am Reply

  • Susan Kreitzer: Love this unusual soup. I altered it a bit. I used ground meat and ground Italian sausage. I was going to use half a pound of each, but my husbnd browned a pound of each! I used the chicken stock and added some of beef broth since I had some in the frig. I let the soup for several hours because I had the time and I wanted the flavors to marry. I put the cheese in the bottom of the bowl and it melted great. My husband wasn’t a big fan of so much cheese but I loved it. Eating right now lunch. November 13, 2017 at 9:59am Reply

  • Simone Runyan: Very interesting dish. I made it tonight (just for myself!). The flavors didn’t have quite the punch I was expecting, but still overall I was “satisfied enough” with the result. I added quite a bit of Parmesan cheese on top of my portion, and about halfway through eating it I threw some tortilla chips in just for fun (totally worked!). I love ground beef but couldn’t help thinking how awesome this might be with shredded chicken! I am not a ricotta fan, but I couldn’t even taste the ricotta in this. I wouldn’t eat this regularly, but it was fun for something different. January 22, 2018 at 12:28am Reply
