Lasagna Soup Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound (450g) ground beef or Italian sausage (or a mix of both)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (960ml) chicken or beef broth
  • 1 can (14.5 oz or 410g) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz or 425g) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 8 lasagna noodles, broken into pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup (240g) ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup (100g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup (50g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh basil or parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Cook the Meat:
    • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the ground beef or Italian sausage and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables:
    • Add the chopped onion to the pot and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
    • Add the minced garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  3. Add the Liquids and Seasonings:
    • Stir in the chicken or beef broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste.
    • Add the dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using).
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Cook the Noodles:
    • Add the broken lasagna noodles to the pot.
    • Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  5. Prepare the Cheeses:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix well.
  6. Serve the Soup:
    • Ladle the soup into bowls.
    • Top each bowl with a generous spoonful of the cheese mixture.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh basil or parsley.


  • Noodles: If you prefer, you can use other pasta shapes like rotini, mafalda, or broken spaghetti.
  • Cheese Mixture: For a creamier texture, you can stir the cheese mixture directly into the soup before serving.
  • Vegetables: Feel free to add extra vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, or spinach for added nutrition and flavor.
  • Leftovers: This soup thickens as it sits. If you have leftovers, add a splash of broth or water when reheating to reach your desired consistency.

Enjoy your warm and comforting lasagna soup!
