I love winter soups. And this lasagna soup recipe embodies all things cozy, hearty and filling. It's such a quick recipe, requiring only 30 minutes (most of that time being simmer time).
You'll find all of your favorite lasagna ingredients in the soup. Such as ground beef, onions, herbs, crushed tomatoes, lasagna noodles and ricotta cheese to top it off.
For this recipe you need one soup pot and that's it. Which makes cleanup a breeze.
And if you are interested in my traditional lasagna recipe I've been making for my family for 15 years. That's the one!
Ingredients For Lasagna Soup
Everything you'll need to make this delicious lasagna soup!
- ground beef - I like to use a 90/10, but if you use a 93/7 then there isn't much fat to drain off! Really and type of ground beef works.
- garlic - fresh garlic cloves
- onion - I prefer a yellow onion for this recipe
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- dried basil
- dried oregano
- kosher salt - my favorite salt to cook with
- ground pepper
- crushed tomatoes - canned crushed tomatoes
- chicken broth
- water - since the noodles get boiled in the soup, a bit of water is necessary, since the noodle soak up liquid
- tomato paste
- lasagna noodles
- frozen spinach
- heavy cream - the heavy cream makes it nice and creamy, there isn't any mozzarella in the recipe so this is that bit of decadence it needs
- ricotta cheese - after you serve the soup, this gets dolloped on top, so yummy!!!
How To Make Lasagna Soup
Making this lasagna soup could not get any easier! The list of ingredients is actually longer than the directions, that's just how easy it is.
Start by browning the ground beef and draining off the excess fat. Then add in the onion, garlic, the dried herbs and seasonings. Saute this until the onions have softened, about 5 minutes.
Next add the crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, water, tomato paste and pieces of broken up lasagna noodles. Simmer this on low until the lasagna is almost ready, about 10 minutes.
The last step is to add the frozen spinach and cream. Continue cooking for 5 more minutes.
Serve the soup in individuals bowls and top with dollops of ricotta cheese. Optionally you can add some parmesan cheese on top and maybe some fresh basil if you have it on hand.
