Tips For Making Lasagna Soup
- I use lean ground beef for this recipe. There’s less grease from the meat yet provides yummy flavor. You could also add Italian sausage for even more savory flavor.
- Use good canned tomatoes. I use San Marzano crushed tomatoes and love their rich, full tomato taste.
- If you want to make this soup ahead of time, follow the directions up until adding the noodles. Since the pasta will absorb a fair amount of liquid, it’s best to add the lasagna noodles before serving.
- Serve the soup with a heaping spoonful of ricotta. Stir in the cheese, then dig in. You’ll have all the flavor of baked lasagna in every delicious bite!
Commonly Asked Questions
Yes, you can. You’ll want to taste and adjust the seasoning since the beef has a much richer flavor. You might need to add more seasoning flavor if chicken or turkey is used.
To keep this recipe true to its roots, I recommend using lasagna noodles. You could use other heartier pasta like farfalle, or rotini if needed.
How To Serve Lasagna Soup
To add all the flavors of traditional lasagna, then you’ve got to have cheese! Spoon on a heaping dollop of ricotta cheese along with a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan. For a bit of brightness, add on some fresh torn basil, and you’re set.
How To Store Leftovers
If you are lucky enough to have some leftovers, store the soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a pot on the stovetop or in the microwave.
