- Lean ground beef - for hearty beefiness. In place of ground beef, substitute with ground turkey or Italian sausage.
- spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce - using pre-made sauce makes this meal quick work!
- onion, garlic
andmushrooms - for freshness. Although the recipe doesn't call for it, fresh spinach would be a great addition.
- beef broth - adds richness to this hearty soup. In a pinch use chicken broth.
- Italian herbs - dried Italian seasoning to add some extra spices to develop the flavor.
- fire-roasted tomatoes - you can use diced tomatoes if you prefer.
- a few dollops of ricotta cheese - for traditional flavor and cheesiness! You can substitute with cottage cheese or cream cheese. I've even used heavy cream which makes it super rich.
- Pasta - use your favorite type of pasta. I prefer a smaller pasta, so it easily fits on a spoon.
- optional garnish - pepper jack cheese, parmesan cheese, thinly sliced fresh basil.

Yes, you can freeze lasagna soup, it freezes great! Ladle out a quart prior to your meal and place in the freezer. You'll be thankful for those days you don't feel like cooking!
About an hour from start to finish. This includes dicing the vegetables, sautéing the beef and bringing it all together.
Lasagna is great because it's the perfect combination of savory and creamy. It's all the flavors in one and after it sits a day. or two it tastes even better!
- Add spice to the soup by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes.

- Use Alfredo Sauce instead of marinara sauce and make a creamy white lasagna soup instead!
- Add chopped vegetables or baby spinach to the soup - delish!
Here are some examples of pasta to use in this one-pot lasagna soup recipe.
Campanellapasta - which has a tube shape with ruffled edges and closely resembles lasagna noodles - great choice!
- conchiglie - more often known as shells or seashell pasta, inexpensive and readily available
- orecchiette - a small pasta about the size of your finger shaped like a cup, it collects the sauce and cheese perfectly!
- farfalle - bow tie pasta, always tasty and fun.
- macaroni - affordable and easily available.
- broken lasagna pasta - although this pasta will work, it's not the best choice.
All of these varieties of pasta are great options! My favorite would be conchiglie closely followed by orecchiette pasta.
I like these because they both are shaped so they catch the sauce and make each spoonful that much more flavorful.
Believe it or not, the pasta I least prefer are the lasagna noodles. Even if you break them up, the pieces are such that they won't fit onto your soup spoon. Also because they are all different sizes and shapes they won't cook evenly. When some pieces are done, others will be overdone.
Refrigerate - Store leftover in an airtight container. Refrigerate up to four days.
Freezer - Leftover soup freezes great, up to three months.
Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, leftovers heat well in the microwave or on the stovetop. Enjoy!

Lasagna is one of our favorite meals, but I confess, I don't make it often. In fact, I even tried a shortcut and got frozen lasagna and made the mistake of telling my (Italian) friend Michelle what I did, boy did I get chewed out!
Michelle makes the BEST lasagna and shortly after buying the frozen lasagna (and the confession) we visited her. And of course she made homemade lasagna.
It is rich and cheesy, perfectly layered with homemade sauce and fresh pasta. Did I tell you Michelle is Italian? Oh that meal was heavenly!

I can't match her tasty meal, so instead I'm making it my way; into an easy delicious soup!
