This Lasagna Soup Recipe Is So Filling And Flavorful
If you’ve been looking for a comforting dinner that is super easy to make, you will want to try this delicious lasagna soup!
I initially found this recipe on The Recipe Rebel’s blog, I added a few tweaks to make it my own, and here is what I came up with! This recipe does not take long to prepare and has everything you need in one pot. You are going to want to add this lasagna soup to your meal rotation!
What is lasagna soup?
Lasagna soup is a dish that is a soup but has all the contents of lasagna in one pot. It is super easy to make and doesn’t require all the prep and layering that lasagna does. Less prep, but all the delicious flavor! Lasagna soup is a perfect dish to serve to friends and family, and perfect before it starts to get warmer outside. This soup has a base of broth and marinara sauce and then all of the added ingredients, including whatever toppings you decide.
How is my recipe different from the original?
The original lasagna soup recipe comes from The Recipe Rebel’s blog and it is SO delicious. For my rendition of the recipe, I tweaked it a little bit to make it my own. The original recipe is a little bit more complicated and uses different ingredients to create the tomato base, while mine is a more simplified version that includes marinara sauce instead. The original recipe is delicious, but mine works well for someone who is on a major time crunch! Besides the difference in the marinara sauce, this recipe is otherwise pretty similar. Check it out!
What marinara sauce should I use for lasagna soup?
For this recipe, I used Mezzetta marinara sauce. This sauce is wonderful and you should be able to find it at most grocery stores. However, if you have a marinara sauce that you prefer, I recommend that you use it. This recipe can be up for interpretation and work wonderfully with other marinara sauces.
What seasonings should I use for lasagna soup?
I like to add in some seasonings after cooking the ground beef. I add Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Besides those seasonings, the marinara sauce adds a lot of good flavors. With those three seasonings on hand, you should be good to go!
How long do I cook the ground beef?
The trick to cooking ground beef is to add it to the pan with the onion and stir it often. You should be able to tell when the ground beef is done cooking because the meat will be browned and the onion will have softened. Once this has happened, the meat is ready and you can add in your seasonings. After stirring in the seasonings for a minute, you can add the liquids and bring them to a boil so you can finally add the pasta and the rest of the ingredients.
What can I serve on top of lasagna soup?
There are SO many toppings that you can add to lasagna soup! Some of my favorites are ricotta, mozzarella, fresh parsley, and fresh basil. Parmesan would also be so delicious added to the top of lasagna soup. But don’t just stick to my suggestions, you can add whatever toppings you chose!
