Why this Soup is Best

This Lasagna Soup surpassed my expectations.

My husband does not like lasagna. The ricotta cheese is the main culprit. I was a little worried about making lasagna soup without ricotta, but it went over quite well!

Don’t worry cheese lovers: this soup still has all the wonderful cheesiness you love in a good lasagna!

  • Instead of ricotta, I mixed grated parmesan into the warm soup and sprinkled shreds of mozzarella on top.
  • The flavorful pork simmered with tangy tomatoes, fragrant garlic, and all the Italian herbs I adore made for one tasty soup. 
  • Lasagna Soup is easy enough for a weeknight meal but definitely impressive enough to serve to dinner guests!
  • Everything in this soup comes together in one pot without any fuss and very little clean up.

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make lasagna soup.

I make my Lasagna Soup with ground pork. This gives it a hearty authentic flavor. Ground beef works well too.

  • Tomatoes, green peppers and onion add flavor and texture to this soup.
  • Spices. Dried basil, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and crushed red pepper flakes add delicious flavor.
  • Cheese. Shredded mozzarella and parmesan are the perfect duo. If you love ricotta you can add it to the soup with the parmesan if you want.
  • Pasta. I use traditional lasagna noodles in this recipe, but feel free to swap them for rotini, penne, or your favorite shape!

Easy Instructions

To make this soup, start by browning ground pork in a soup pot along with onion, green pepper and garlic. Add the tomatoes, chicken broth, and Italian seasonings then simmer everything for a half hour.

Break the lasagna noodles into bite sized pieces and add them to the soup pot. Continue cooking the soup along with the noodles for another 15 minutes, or until the noodles are tender.

Before serving the soup, I mixed grated parmesan cheese into the pot. The soup will soften and melt the cheese perfectly!

After ladling the soup into bowls, top with the shredded mozzarella cheese and enjoy.

What to Serve with Lasagna Soup

We loved bowls of Lasagna soup with sourdough bread crisps for dunking.

It would also pair perfectly with slices of crusty Italian bread or your favorite dinner rolls. Next time I make it, I may try topping it with large croutons ala French Onion Soup!

This soup is definitely hearty and filling enough to serve as a full meal all on its own. Served in smaller cups, it would make a great accompaniment to any Italian meal, too.

We also love a fresh Italian Salad, just like Olive Garden. A thick slice of homemade bread and we’ve got a complete meal.

Tips and Tricks

  • Whether you’re a fan of lasagna or a lasagna skeptic, like my husband, you’re going to love this herby, garlicky pork soup!
  • When it comes to lasagna soup, lasagna noodles are the obvious choice. Either no-boil or regular lasagna noodles will work just fine. Break them into pieces about 2 inches long before adding them to the pot.
  • That said, if you don’t have lasagna noodles around, you can certainly use other types of noodles. Just be sure to check the pasta frequently as it cooks to avoid overcooking.
  • Lasagna soup stores well in the fridge for a couple of days.
  • Store this soup in an airtight container (or in freezer bags) in the freezer, then thaw at room temperature before reheating on the stove or the microwave.

    Made this for my hubby and myself…very good comfort food without the work of a real lasagna! I’d imagine kids would go nuts for this.
