This Lasagna Soup is one of my all time favorites! You get all the flavors of a delicious hearty lasagna in a comforting soup form! It’s loaded with beef, tomatoes and Italian herbs and the melty cheese just takes it over the top.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced (1 3/4 cups)
  • 5 garlic cloves, to taste, minced*
  • 4 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, then more to thin as desired
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 3/4 tsp dried basil**
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 lasagna noodles, broken into bite size pieces (6.5 oz)***
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, crumble beef into pot, season with salt and pepper to taste and cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Drain fat from beef and set beef aside.
  • Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in pot, add chopped yellow onion and saute until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add in garlic and saute 30 seconds longer.
  • Add in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, browned ground beef and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring just to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare lasagna noodles according to directions listed on package.
  • In a mixing bowl, using a fork, stir together mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta.
  • Stir cooked pasta into soup along with parsley, then thin soup with a little more broth if desired****.
  • Ladle soup into bowls, dollop with a large scoop of the cheese mixture and sprinkle with chopped parsley (cheese will melt well once stirred into soup).
