Lasagna Soup (One Pot Recipe)

Overhead shot of two bowls of lasagna soup in white bowls.

One Pot Lasagna Soup tastes just like lasagna without all the work. This beef & noodle tomato soup cooks in one pot and is served topped with a creamy ricotta cheese mixture that melts deliciously into it.

As we all know, lasagna can be a very time consuming dish.

I’ve got a great lasagna recipe that layers the noodles with a béchamel sauce and a beef ragu. It’s amazingly good, but I very rarely ever make it because it makes a ton and it takes a ton of time to make! With just the two of us around the house, lasagna has resigned itself to being for special occasions when we’ve got a big group at the house.

This soup fits the bill for when you want lasagna and you’re in a time crunch. Or, for when you don’t want a massive amount of lasagna.

One Pot Lasagna Soup

  • You won’t miss the noodles – they’re in there.
  • You won’t miss the tomato sauce, because those noodles are floating in it.
  • And you won’t miss the cheese…

The best part of this one pot lasagna soup may be the fact that it’s topped with a mixture of creamy ricotta, mozzarella & parmesan. That little dollop of cheese melts into your hot soup and gives it such a richness and extra layer of flavors. You will love it!

Meaning more time for drinking wine…. 

How Do You Make Lasagna Soup?

  • Start by browning up some ground beef.
  • Add in some onion and garlic and let it soften.
  • Then, add in lots of Italian spices, broth, and broken up lasagna noodles.
  • Let it all simmer together while you make the yummy cheese topping and open a bottle of wine.

That’s it – Super simple.
