Why Make This One Pot Lasagna Soup

This recipe involves less dishes! This One Pot Lasagna Soup is all made in one pot, so you have less cleaning to do and more time to eat. It’s creamy and delicious.

You can make it vegetarian or with ground chicken or turkey for a healthier alternative. The beef/pork mixture gives it so much flavor. This soup is a big HUG in bowl. It’s much easier than making a traditional lasagna too. The noodles cook right in the broth, so they are full of great flavor you will crave. Add this one to your weekly rotation for sure.

Ingredients Needed

Ingredients to make One Pot Lasagna Soup on a counter, in bowls.

Ground Meat. I did a 50/50 blend of sausage and beef for the ULTIMATE flavor, plus my husband loves this combo. You can use ground turkey or chicken to make it healthier.

Chopped Onions. I like to do yellow or white.

Tomato Paste. To give more depth to the flavor and thicken the broth.

Seasoning. Red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, thyme.

Tomato Sauce. Any sauce of choice will work! Just choose your favorite jar.

Ricotta. Optional for a creamy texture and add into the soup.

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card below. 

Recipe Variations

Ground Meat. Use venison, ground turkey or just all ground beef if needed.

Tomato Sauce. Use marinara sauce if you’d like. Just choose a sauce you enjoy.

Dairy Free. You can make this dairy free by skipping the mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta, or use dairy free alternatives.

Steps To Make This Recipe

Steps to make this recipe in one large dutch oven/soup pot. Seasonings, meat and sauce.

Step One. Break the lasagna noodles into 4ths and set aside. In a large dutch oven or deep pot, brown the meat together on medium high, stirring often (about 8-10 minutes). Soak up the grease with a paper towel in the pot, or drain the grease in the trash. Once browned, set aside in a bowl. Add the onions directly to the pot, use olive oil if needed, or you can brown it in the grease ruminants.

Step Two. Sauté onions for about 5 minutes, add in minced garlic, stir. Next add in tomato paste. Let it cook directly on the heated pot for a minute before mixing it in, this gives it a much better flavor.

Step Three. Add in seasonings, red tomato sauce/marinara, broth, meat and bring it all to a low simmer. Next, mix in the broken lasagna noodles, cover and bring down to a rough simmer for about 20 minutes or until lasagna noodles are cooked to your liking. Lastly, toss the spinach in and let it wilt. If you want the mixture more soupy, add some more broth otherwise leave it as is.

Step Four. Add in Parmesan to the soup. Mix ricotta with shredded mozzarella in a small bowl. Serve the soup and dollop each bowl with ricotta mozzarella mixture. Enjoy!

*This is great for meal prep and will last in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this soup, once cooled. Add it to a freezer friendly container and freeze for up to 3 months.

Recipe FAQs

Can I meal prep this?

This is great for meal prep and will last in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this soup, once cooled. Add it to a freezer friendly container and freeze for up to 3 months.

Can I make this vegetarian?

Yes, skip the meat it is still wonderful. You can add mushrooms in place of the meat for more heartiness.

What can I serve with this?

Crusty garlic bread is wonderful with this soup. A green salad would also work.

Recipe Tips

Control The Thickness of The Soup. You can make it thick or thin it out with broth. I like to keep a little broth to the side incase I need it but I prefer this soup on the thicker side.

Make It Healthier. Cut back on calories by using lean ground turkey instead of beef/sausage mixture. You can also skip the ricotta and cheeses to cut back on calories.

Recipe Pairings

This recipe pairs great with Air Fryer Garlic Bread or Lemon Kale Caesar Salad.

Notes

 
*Use ground chicken or turkey for a healthier alternative or you can also use all ground beef. 
*Freezing instructions: Freeze lasagna soup without the cheese.  Place soup in a freezer safe container and freeze for 2-3 months.  Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat slowly on the stovetop for best flavor.
*Vegetarian Lasagna Soup:  Skip sausage and ground beef and add more chopped vegetables (cooking with onion and garlic). I recommend zucchini, mushrooms, and/or yellow squash.
*This is great for meal prep and will last in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this soup, once cooled. Add it to a freezer friendly container and freeze for up to 3 months.

    I saw this recipe some months back and have since make it twice. It is a hit in this house. We love it. Thanks Bailey

  7. How many of there are four servings, how many ounces is each serving?
    What percentage of lean beef did you use for the nutrition facts?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Renae, about 1.5 cups ~ 2 cups of soup per serving. I used 90/10 beef but my nutrition calculator plug in pulls from a general “lean ground beef” vs an exact percentage. If you are trying to watch calories really close, I recommend using an app on your phone as sometimes my plug in can wonky and not as exact. I hope that helps!

  8. 5 stars
