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



  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 cups bone broth or low-sodium chicken broth or beef broth
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans petite diced tomatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon fennel seeds crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 8 lasagna noodles broken into bite size pieces (6.5 oz)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Ricotta Cheese Topping

  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley plus more for garnish


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add beef, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until browned. 

  2. Add onion and garlic and saute until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. 

  3. Add broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano, fennel seeds, thyme, sugar, lasagna noodles, and season with salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

  4. In a mixing bowl, using a fork, stir together mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta and parsley. 

  5. Ladle soup into bowls, dollop with a large scoop of the ricotta cheese mixture and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
