My family loves this soup. It has all the flavors of a classic lasagna with half the mess, half the time and just as good flavor, if not better.
I bet you already have these lasagna soup ingredients!
The ingredient list might look long but they are items that you probably already use in your daily cooking.
Lasagna soup recipes variations:
Healthy Lasagna Soup– Replace beef with frozen vegetables of your choice. Use vegetable broth and low fat cheese.
Cheesy Lasagna Soup– Add more mozzarella and parmesan cheese along with ricotta cheese to make a really creamy soup.
Chicken Lasagna Soup– Replace beef with 1-2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken.
Vegetarian Lasagna Soup/ Vegan Lasagna Soup– Use vegetable broth, vegan cheese, vegetarian beef crumbles and 1/2 cup frozen vegetables.
Don’t use this recipe to make slow Cooker Lasagna Soup/ Crockpot Lasagna Soup or Instant Pot Lasagna Soup.
That’s because less liquid needs to be used for those versions.

Happy cooking everyone!
Lasgana soup!? Yes, please!!
I love being able to get all the flavors of lasagna without having to put in all the work….genius!
Sounds like a hearty fall dinner!
This is amazing. We love how easy and flavorful this is!! Can’t wait to try.
Oooh, great variations on this too. I love one-pot pasta recipes. They are excellent for busy nights!
Can this be frozen??? Love to make soups in the fall and freeze it for a quick dinner later.
I have noticed pasta doesn’t freeze well BUT you can make the rest of the soup and freeze that. When you are ready for dinner, defrost the soup in a large pot and add the uncooked pasta and cook for a few minutes until it’s cooked. Add a little more broth or water if soup is too thick.
i added a lot more noodles and had no milk but used cream cheese to thicken and it was sooo good!
Made it with chicken…and sorry to admit I omitted the heavy cream, but used 1/3c cream cheese and some of the seasonings we didn’t have on hand so they weren’t included but this came out tasting so good! Thank you!
My daughters friend made this and brought it to our bunco group with a green salad and garlic rolls. So good!
I needed some comfort food and this sounded perfect. I am lazy and didn’t measure anything. I dumped in some pre chopped onion (not the whole container) a table spoon or two (again I didn’t measure) of pre-mixed Italian herb blend instead of the individual spices listed and on top of the Italian dressing spice packet I mixed with the beef. I also used beef broth (because I didn’t have chicken) and on top of all that I forgot to add the crushed tomatoes. Even though I totally messed up the recipe it still came out amazing. If it’s this good when you screw it up, I bet it will be out of this world when made correctly. I can’t wait to try making it again and sticking to the directions. Also, quick question for the blogger, how long will it last in the fridge?
hahaha! Nothing wrong with experimenting in the kitchen. It should last 2 days in the fridge but if you have already added the lasagna noodles, they will absorb a lot of the liquid and some people don’t like that. That’s why I like to eat it the same day.
Love this soup. We like a thicker soup so I adjusted the amount of stock to fit our taste. Tasted just like lasagna
How could I adapt to a crock pot? I go to an outdoor soup supper where we all use crock pots. Would it work to make all up to the bay leaf at home, heat it in the crock that evening and when it bubbles, continue adding the rest? How long might it take to cook the noodles in a crock pot? Thanks!
I would not adapt this recipe. Instead, I suggest trying out this slow cooker version: https://slowcookerfoodie.com/slow-cooker-lasagna-soup/
Tried this for the first time and it was AMAZING! I highly recommend it but we added extra cheese so it was a little more thick. Other than that it was so good 👩🏼🍳
Can’t wait to try!! Sounds delicious, foolproof and customizable to taste. I will be adding cottage cheese before serving. YUM!! What’s the need for the vinegar? That’s an unusual ingredient. Wondering if I need to use that secret ingredient in other tomato base recipes. Thanks for sharing this pot of gold!
How much leftover lasagna is needed for the recipe? I’m just a single person looking up things to do with leftovers that aren’t the same leftovers so I’m unlikely to have a huge casserole dish.
I think you can use 4 big leftover slices. Play around with the quantity of broth, crushed tomatoes and pasta sauce. Start with about 1 cup of each and see if you are satisfied with the consistency. Then, make changes accordingly.
How much does this serve ?
It served about 6 people.
I had 3/4 of a pan of lasagna leftover (keep forgetting we’re empty nesters) so I sautéed onions & peppers in olive oil, added broth and some homemade pesto and cut up the lasagna in small squares and added to the broth. Perfect pot of soup!
Very good and easy recipe. Hubby loved it! Only thing I would adjust is breaking up noodles smaller. Our personal preference. Thanks for the recipe!
