What is Lasagna Soup?
- This easy soup has all of the rich zesty flavor of our favorite lasagna recipe in slurp-able soup. No oven required.
- It needs just one pot which means less cleaning, less mess.
- This soup is versatile; add your favorite veggies from zucchini to mushrooms.
- The whole family loves this recipe and it reheats well.
- Serve with breadsticks and a small bowl of shredded parmesan cheese.
Ingredients for Lasagna Soup
Meat – Italian sausage brings the flavor, but ground beef, pork or even ground turkey will work. Homemade meatballs or a bag of frozen meatballs can be used too!
Tomato Broth – Broth made with two kinds of canned tomatoes gives a bit of texture and a thicker consistency.
Vegetables – Onion, bell peppers, and spinach add great flavor. Feel free too add your own favorite veggies including chopped kale, sliced mushrooms, or zucchini.
Pasta – I use regular lasagna noodles and break them into larger pieces. You can use any medium pasta shape like penne, rigatoni, rotini, or shells.
Toppings – My favorite topping is ricotta cheese. Top with extra parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella, fresh parsley and basil.
How to Make Lasagna Soup
- Brown meat with onion and garlic in a large stockpot.
- Add broth ingredients and simmer (per the recipe below).
- Add lasagna pieces and simmer until tender.
- Stir in spinach and allow soup to rest a few minutes before serving.
- Top with ricotta cheese, additional grated parmesan cheese, some freshly chopped herbs and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you’d like.
If you’d prefer, this soup can be cooked in the slow cooker.
What to Serve with Lasagna Soup
Cheesy garlic breadsticks are a must for soaking up the savory broth, and a simple green salad will round out this family favorite! Have it with some homemade croutons on top, or top it with shredded mozzarella cheese. Make some homemade garlic bread for dipping and dinner is served.
Storing Lasagna Soup
- Keep leftover lasagna soup in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat on the stovetop and add fresh pasta, if desired.
- If making in advance, cook the pasta separately and add it to the soup just before serving.
- Freeze leftover soup in zippered bags for up to 3 months.

This soup is delicious and easy to prepare. I definitely recommend the ricotta cheese when serving. Thank you for another great recipe.
I’m so glad you loved it Janet!
The best soup ever! Better than actual lasagna!!!!
I am so glad you enjoyed this soup Patricia!
Hi! I bought everything for this recipe but then my schedule changed and I’ll need to crockpot it, however I looked at your crockpot lasagna soup recipe and the ingredients are a little different, mostly there seems to be more tomato sauce in it. Can i do this exact recipe and just put it in the crockpot for a few hours do you think? I just dont want it all to dry up without that extra tomato sauce while I’m away! Thank you, and looks delicious as always!
I think it will be fine but I would suggest cooking the pasta on the side. I haven’t had consistent results cooking pasta in the slow cooker.
I followed the recipe exactly as written, this was so good and easy. All of the flavors of lasagna but none of the fuss! To finish it off I put some of the soup in a small oven save dish, topped it with dollops of ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese and then put it in a 350 degree oven until the cheese melted. Delicious!! Thanks for the recipe, will definitely be making it again!!
Oh.my.goodness! That sounds so delicious Julie. Thank you for sharing.
Looks wonderful. How would you make it in a crock pot? Thank you
We follow this CrockPot lasagna soup recipe.

So glad you loved this soup as much as we do Nikki!
Saw the recipe in yesterday’s email and made it last night for the family. Everyone enjoyed it a lot. I added some ground chuck and olives to the original recipe’s ingredients. It’s a very tasty dish for a cold winter night!
I’m so glad your family loved it as much as mine does Mark!
