Soup season is in full swing and I couldn’t be more excited. Since we moved to Ohio, I’ve been looking forward to meals full of all my favorite Soups and Stews as the temperatures drop.

I already have a feeling we’ll be eating many more bowls of this tasty soup on cold nights all winter long!

What is Lasagna Soup?

Lasagna soup is everything you love about a classic Italian lasagna simmered in soup form. My family loves lasagna with lots of meat in it, so I used both hot sausage and ground beef in this soup.

After browning the meat, I added onions, garlic, and tomatoes along with Italian Seasoning. After simmering everything in chicken broth and adding curly mafalda noodles, the soup finishes with the best ingredient of all: lots of cheese.

For the cheese topping, I use a blend of three different kinds of Italian cheeses. The mix of Ricotta, Parmesan, and Mozzarella cheese adds rich, creamy flavors to this soup.

A big scoop of the cheese topping on my bowl of soup made me very happy indeed. Every spoonful of soup was full of tangy tomato, hot sausage, perfectly cooked noodles, and gooey cheese.

Everyone in my family loves this Lasagna Soup. Most of us went back for a second bowl!

Easy Lasagna Soup

Perhaps the best thing about this delicious Italian soup is how easy it is. Sometimes you want lasagna without all the steps of boiling noodles, browning the meat and placing everything layer by layer in a casserole dish.

The noodles in this soup cook right in the pot with the other ingredients, so this recipe will save you both cooking and clean up time. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen doing dishes when you could be digging into a big bowl of delicious soup?

You can make this soup ahead of time, too! Follow all the directions up to adding the noodles and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Once ready to serve, bring the soup to a simmer again, add the noodles and cook until tender. Waiting to add the noodles if you prep the soup in advance ensures that they won’t get mushy.

Lasagna Soup is a hearty dinner that gets cheers whenever we make it!

I love the way my Homemade Italian Seasoning tastes in this recipe, but your favorite store-bought Italian herb blend will work beautifully as well. If you like a spicier soup, feel free to increase the amount of red pepper in the recipe.

Likewise, if you want a little less heat, reduce the red pepper flakes by as much as you like. We all loved the taste of hot Italian sausage in this Lasagna Soup recipe but other types of sausage would likely taste good too.

Mafalda Noodles

What are Mafalda noodles? They’re a miniature flat noodle with curvy edges, just like a miniature lasagna noodle. These small Mafalda noodles are absolutely perfect in Lasagna Soup, and these longer Mafalda noodles caught my eye when I was buying the others and now I can’t wait to try them too.

Using these flat curvy noodles really makes this soup feel like a spin on lasagna. If you can’t find Mafalda noodles, pretty much any curly noodle will work in the Lasagna Soup recipe. Play with it and make it your own.

Lasagna Soup is filled with hearty chunks of beef, sausage, and tender noodles in a rich Italian spiced broth. Get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com

Lasagna Soup Recipe

  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, cook and crumble the sausage and ground beef over medium-high heat. Add the onions and the garlic to cook along with the meat. Sprinkle with Italian seasonings and red pepper flakes as everything cooks.

  2. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Stir and increase heat to high. When soup begins to simmer, reduce to medium-high once again and add the pasta. Stir and simmer until noodles are soft, 8-10 minutes. Taste the broth and adjust spices as needed.

  3. Remove from the heat when the noodles are tender but still chewy. While the pasta is cooking, stir together the ricotta, Parmesan, and Mozzarella in a small bowl.

  4. Scoop the soup into bowls and top with a generous scoop of the cheese mixture.

    My husband doesn’t eat pasta but looks amazing to me. What do you think I could substitute for the pasta?

    Thanks,
    Victoria

    • Mary Younkin says

      I suppose you could skip it. I would probably add creamy white beans for a little more heartiness. It won’t be a “lasagna” soup, but it will be delicious that way with some bread for dipping, Victoria.

  2. jude says

    So very good…………..but even better, put a generous scoop of the cheese mixture in the BOTTOM of the bowl and scoop the soup on top of it. Wonderful, melty cheese mixture in every bite.

  3. Marne Holstein says

    Dear Mary, Another winner! Just loved it!! I halved the recipe.. and horrible cook that I am I added 1/2 t. of chilli powder ( I didn’t have flakes) should’ve been 1/4 in retrospect! It is still a total winner! My husband as we speak is going Mmmmm Mmmmmm!! Thank you for the terrific recipe! I totally love your blog! You have never steered me wrong!!5 stars

  4. Jenelle in FL says

    I made this recipe tonight since it will be everything turkey tomorrow and the days after that. Smells so good in my house!! I put a bay leaf in the pot as well. Not going to use ricotta since my family doesn’t like it. Excellent recipe!!

  5. Rhonda says

    I made this tonight and loved it. The ricotta soup topping was amazing. I made the full recipe so that I could freeze half for another day. This is a favorite already in my house. Definitely will be making this again and again.5 stars

    This looks amazing!! But where can you buy the noodles for a normal price, instead of quadruple grocery store prices? That Amazon link takes me to a listing that is $13 minimum for only 3 boxes. That’s over $4 for 12 oz of pasta. Normal grocery store price is $.90-$1.40 for 12-16 oz, even for large lasagna noodles.

    • Mary Younkin says

      Hi Linden, I provide that link as a reference point for the type of pasta. Whenever I luck into finding them locally, I stock up! That said, this soup is delicious with rotini and bow ties pasta as well. Just use pasta that you enjoy eating!

    • Linden Peters says

      Thanks for the tip! I’ll just have to keep my eye out for it, and in the meantime, try it with other pastas!
