The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Lasagna Soup (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

Ground beef – use lean ground beef.
Onion – use either a yellow or white onion.
Garlic – fresh garlic is best for this recipe.
Red pepper flakes – these are optional but add a nice heat to the soup without making it too spicy.
Tomato paste
Balsamic vinegar

Granulated sugar – the sugar mellows out the acidity of the tomato sauces in the soup.
Dried basil, oregano & parsley
Salt & Pepper

Pasta sauce – use your favorite jar of pasta sauce. We like Prego and used the Roasted Garlic and Herb variety.
Low sodium chicken broth – low sodium is important because you can add more salt if needed, but regular chicken broth can be too salty for the soup.
Can crushed tomatoes
Bay leaf
Uncooked lasagna noodles – break the noodles roughly into 1 to 2-inch pieces.
Heavy cream – this is optional. Use if you’d like the soup to be more creamy. We did not use the cream when making this recipe.
Garnish – shredded mozzarella cheese, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese

How to Make Lasagna Soup

In a large soup pot or Dutch oven cook the ground beef and onion over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon into small pieces. Cook until the meat is fully browned.

Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds. Drain off any excess fat.

Garnish Ideas for Lasagna Soup

Mozzarella cheese – either grated mozzarella or thin slices of fresh mozzarella will work well.

Parmesan cheese – grate fresh Parmesan over the soup before serving.

Fresh parsley – sprinkle freshly chopped parsley over top of the soup for a pretty pop of color and flavor.

Red pepper flakes – if you like your soup spicy, add extra red pepper flakes or even a dash of hot sauce.

Basil – tear fresh basil leaves and sprinkle over top of the soup right before serving.

How to Store Leftover Soup

Keep the leftover lasagna soup in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well between each interval.
