Lasagna Soup

The ultimate cozy fall meal is Lasagna Soup! You only need one pot to make it and it has all the flavors of lasagna without all the layering and assembling!

This recipe was trending for quite some time but I never made it! I was waiting for the weather to cool down and wow was it worth the wait. I truly enjoyed this more than a traditional layered lasagna although I think that statement might offend some. It is the definition of a hearty meal to have on a chilly night. I can’t believe something could taste so good that was made in about 30 minutes!

The Ricotta Topping

The easiest part of this recipe is making the ricotta topping! This is what we’ll add on top of each bowl after the soup is done. To prep it, these are the ingredients you will need:

  • whole milk ricotta
  • parmesan
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • nutmeg

Combine everything together in a small bowl and set aside. We won’t need it again until the soup is ready to serve!

The Lasagna Soup

The first thing to do is prepare everything that is preppable before hitting the stove! Here is a list of everything I made sure to do:

  • grate mozzarella cheese
  • grate parmesan cheese
  • break the lasagna sheets into small pieces
  • mince garlic
  • chop onions if using
  • finely chop basil
  • finely chop parsley

NOTE: The recipe does not call for onions because I didn’t use it due to personal preference but feel free to use it as it traditionally does include it!

Start by cooking down garlic (and onions if using) in some olive oil and butter in a pot over medium heat. Then add the ground beef. I like to use 90/10 because it’s not too lean and not too fatty, just right.

For the ground beef seasoning, we’ll use Italian seasoning, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Cook over medium-high heat and use a wooden spoon to break up the ground beef. Once it browns, we’ll add marinara sauce, heavy cream, and beef broth.

My favorite marinara sauce to use is Rao’s Homemade! Mix all together and bring to a slow and rolling boil. Add the lasagna sheets and cook until soft, about 13 to 15 minutes.

After that, lower the heat and add parsley, basil, and mozzarella cheese. Mix together one last time.

Serve in a bowl with dollops of the seasoned ricotta on top!

OMG! Thank you for this delicious recipe. You literally can’t find nothing this delicious in any restaurant. Made it yesterday and the family was IN LOVE!

Made this for iftaar over the weekend and it was delicious! So much easier than making traditional lasagna. Highly recommend especially if you’re looking for a quick one-pot dish that doesn’t compromise on flavour. Can’t wait to try out more of her recipes this Ramadan 😊💞

I would classify this recipe as “comfort food.” The perfect soup that only took 30 minutes to make! I will definitely be making this soup again in the winter.

Super flavorful and delicious. I didn’t have beef broth, I used vegetable broth, and Italian noodles instead of lasagna sheets. My family loved it!

Tried this the other day and wow it was amazing!! I’m not too adventurous with my cooking because often times it doesn’t come out that well but this recipe was so easy and delicious !! I substituted the beef for chicken and it still came out delicious 🙂

This is the best lasagna I’ve ever had. I normally never get the lasagna sheets to cook evenly (gluten free) and this is by far the best way to cook them!! I’m obsessed.

We’re not super cheesy people so we made it without cheese and it was SO delicious! It’s our new favourite meal.

OMG!!! Heaven in a bowl!!! Sooooo delicious!! Can’t wait to make it again!

A perfect winter dinner. I made only half as we are just 4 people. I want to make it again. Excellent taste. Love it.

Was in the mood for something warm and creamy, and this did not disappoint! Would recommend using a higher fat ground beef like the recipe calls for to add more flavor. So delish!
