Lasagna Soup

In preparation for the snow last week I decided to pick up enough ingredients to make several soups. And although all of the soups were delish, the lasagna soup beat them all by far. I can’t believe I waited this long to try out this recipe. Matt and I loved it, even though he refuses to call it “lasagna soup” since it technically doesn’t call for lasagna noodles. Anyway, I have to share this one with y’all. It would just be selfish of me not to!

Lasagna Soup

Adapted from Damn Delicious

    8 ounces elbows pasta
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 pound ground turkey, ground beef or Italian sausage

    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion, diced
    2 teaspoons oregano
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    4 cups chicken stock
    1 (28-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
    2 bay leaves
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

    For the ricotta mixture
    8 ounces ricotta
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    In a small bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, salt and pepper, to taste; set aside. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add meat to the skillet and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the meat as it cooks; drain excess fat. Add garlic, onion, oregano and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in tomato paste until well combined, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken stock, diced tomatoes and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in pasta. Serve immediately with a heaping spoonful of the ricotta mixture, sprinkled with mozzarella and basil.

I think I now prefer my lasagna in soup form. It’s that good.

    I've heard a few people rave about lasagna soup and I, like Matt, assumed it had lasagna noodles. This looks and sound absolutely delicious! Pinning this right now for the next cold day that calls for soup. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing! My husband and kids don't really like any soup so I never make it but I think I'll try this one for myself! Even though it's aready in the 80s here this week, hoping for a few more days of cool temps so I can justify the soup making! Thanks for sharing 🙂
