Have you ever found yourself craving two dishes and unable to decide what to make for dinner? I had that situation last week. Pasta or soup?!? (Such big choices to make). And then I thought, why not both! The result is this incredible, family-pleasing, CrockPot Lasagna Soup!

It’s meaty and hearty loaded with rich tomato flavor and all of the same fixings I add into my lasagna.  Once cooked, this is topped with the ultimate combo of cheeses…  mozzarella, fresh parmesan and ricotta.  If you can, be sure to get fresh herbs to sprinkle on top (especially basil). It really makes it delicious!

While this dish does take less than 25 minutes to prepare, you can do a lot of the prep the night before and just pop it all in the slow cooker before you leave for work.  I brown the meat and onions, chop the veggies and have all of the canned goods lined up.

In the morning, it just takes a few minutes to put into the slow cooker before you head out to start your day!

Of course this soup is nothing short of incredible, but I really think the toppings steal the show! There is something totally irresistible about melted cheese and herbs meeting your spoon first.

Speaking of cheese, this recipe calls for Parmesan rinds.

If you’ve never bought parmesan rinds, they are exactly what they sound like…. rinds from a large wheel of parmesan cheese.  Ask at the deli, you can often buy a container of them for just a couple of dollars.  I keep them in the freezer and toss one into sauces and soups to add flavor and richness.  (If you can’t find them, don’t worry, just add a sprinkle or two of fresh parmesan before serving).  Next time you buy a piece of parmesan cheese and cut off the rind, just wrap it up and freeze it!

A note about the pasta:  You might be wondering why I don’t just add the pasta into the soup and cook it along with the rest of the ingredients. This recipe was tested with various types (both brands and shapes) of pasta.  Cooking pasta in a tomato base is unpredictable and more often than not, the pasta took on a very gummy texture.

I found by precooking the pasta al dente (slightly firm) and giving it a few minutes to cook in the tomato broth produced the best results.  The noodles I used are called tripoline (you can find them at most Italian markets) however, you can use any shape of noodles you have on hand.

  1. I am making this recipe now with a substition for chicken broth instead of beef broth as well as ground chicken for ground beef. Only had green pepper and 4 oz of mushrooms. I have a standard size crockpot and had a hard time fitting all the liquids. Needed to take some out to fit. Is this normal?

  2. Hi! Making this for supper! Sounds delish! Followed recipie except using sweet italian sausage instead of hamburger. Already smells so good!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. hi!
    I am in the process of cooking this now, and it seems really watery and bland so far. I did exactly what the recipe stated. Will it thicken at all and will the flavors come out more? It’s been in the crock pot for 2 hrs so far on high.

  4. Made this tonight, excellent !!!

  5. I made this today and it was delish! Kids loved it too! Very easy to make and perfect for a cold day!

  6. When it says 8 servings, what is a serving equal to? Just asking because I have to make 9 quarts for a soup party and I’m not real familiar with soups :)

  7. Do you cook the spinach before you put it in? Or just add it straight in from the bag? 

  8. This was such an awesome dish thank you! We don’t have a crockpot but it worked amazingly in just a regular pot. And since the recipe only called for basically half a box of lasagna noodles, I used the rest (and just cut up more of each ingredient) and made a small lasagna to freeze for later. Absolutely loved it thank you! I will definitely make it again :)

  9. Can the noodles cook in the sauce in this one?

    • I didn’t have great luck with cooking the noodles in the sauce on this one (I tested it a few times with different noodles). They were best added in already cooked.

  10. I made the lasagna soup and my husband couldn’t get enough of it. I didn’t have any ground beef so I use hot Italian sausage. You guessed it, I didn’t have crushed tomato’s, so I used all diced tomatoes along with the tomato sauce. I did have a lasagna noodles and cut them into pieces after cooking. Everything else was straight from the recipe. It did taste somewhat acidy but adding some sugar took care of that..finally, I floated small mozzarella snack balls on top. I will be making this again!

  11. hi-looks great.I don’t have a slow cooker, so is it the same cooking hrs in a normal pot?

  12. Hi! I was rolling thru this website for the first time today, saw this lasagna soup recipe FOR THE SLOW COOKER, and proceeded to dance!! Thank you for your great recipes! I’m hooked!

  13. So excited about trying it today!

  14. interested in making this recipe, what type of noodles did you use? the ones in the picture what is the name, thank you and I look forward to making this!

    • The name of the noodles is listed in the post. They are called tripoline (you can find them at most Italian markets) however, you can use any shape of noodles you have on hand.

  15. This was wonderful. The family loved it. Easy and quick and ready when needed.

  16. This turned out pretty good! I made a few tweaks: added more Italian seasoning, salt and even a little sugar to cut the acidity. I’m gluten and dairy free so I used gluten free noodles and some goat cheese instead and it worked well. Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Looking forward to trying ask these recipes. Thanks!

  18. I made this (minus the mushrooms) it was delicious.

  19. This looks perfect for chilly days! And yes, the toppings with all that cheese and basil are the way to my heart!
