Best Ever Lasagna Soup Recipe (You MUST Try)


Do you love lasagna?

I’ve found an easy and delicious way to get all the yummy  flavors of homemade lasagna in a warm and easy to make soup! You’ll have a warm and hearty meal on the table in no time that’s super comforting on chilly nights.


Lasagna Soup

*Recipe adapted from foodnetwork.com

8 ounces lasagna noodles, broken into pieces (about 10 noodles)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 lb. ground Italian sausage
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 Cup Water
1 -15 -ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup Ricotta Cheese


  • Break and cook noodles according to package directions, drain, and set aside.
  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat up olive oil on medium and sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes.
  • Add in meat with oregano and brown until cooked.
  • Stir in tomato paste and let cook for a couple minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomatoes and 1 cup water.
  • Bring soup up to a simmer and let it slightly reduce for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the noodles, basil, Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 cup of the Ricotta cheese.
  • Pour soup into bowls and top with a spoonful of ricotta cheese and additional chopped basil if desired. Serves 4-6.

Time Saving Tip: Keep a tube of tomato paste handy in the fridge to use for recipes like this one instead of opening a can.


So this is the best soup recipe I’ve tried in a long time! SO good.

You could definitely alter the recipe to suit your family’s taste and use another pasta if desired. It’s super flavorful and delicious. The broth is AMAZING. Even people like my hubby who don’t usually love soups as a meal really enjoyed it! The leftovers are yummy too. Enjoy!

  3. mom2boys

    I love lasagna but hate taking the time to make it so this is a great solution! I can’t wait to give it a try…..thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I agree! Hope you enjoy 😀

    • Kayleigh

      Mom2boys, have you ever tried crock pot lasagna? So much easier!

      • Lynn

        Kayleigh, Do you have a recipe for your crock pot lasagna? I’d love to have a tried and true recipe from someone who recommends. If so, could you email it to me?

  4. Lolie

    Sounds fast and easy! I will be putting it on the list to cook next week. Thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure and thanks for reading Lolie 😀

  5. lisa

    Do you think it would work with another pasta?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes, for sure 👍🏻

  6. Danielle

    Sold! I will be making this for dinner tomorrow-looks delish!!! Thanks!

  7. cassie

    Another great lasagna soup recipe is from cooking classy. My husband and I have it every other week!

  8. Missy

    So yummy looking! Must try

  9. babymair

    Thx . This looks yummy.. and it is perfect for fall.Plus.. it seems like I could put this on the table in about 45 mins ..

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure! Yep -pretty simple and delish 😀

  10. Lisa

    I think it’s the Barilla pasta company makes a tiny lasagna noodle that is easier than breaking up the full size lasagna noodles. A wonderful PTA mom made this in a crockpot and she left the noodles separate in a gallon ziplock to add your own noodles and they didn’t get mushy soaking in the soup.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh neat. Great idea!

      • Michelle

        Do you think it would freeze well?

  11. Trinity

    Looks amazing! I have my own version but use extra wide egg noodles and just cook w the rest of the soup. Even simpler! 👍

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sounds yummy 😀 – thanks Trinity!

  12. Susan

    I think this could adapt nicely yo the instapot

  13. Kathy

    Looks yummy ..Vegetarian version pls?

    • TAMARA

      Yes please!

    • Jenn

      Speaking as a 2+ year vegetarian, why do you need a separate recipe on how to make this vegetarian?? No meat, sub vegetable broth for chicken! I would add baby spinach and maybe garbanzo beans. If you wanted a spicy kick (and are ok with meat substitute), Trader Joes soy chorizo might be an interesting addition!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You could replace meat with lots of chopped veggies or even that product Beyond Meat plus add more spices like fennel seed and Italian spices.

  14. Love From MunchkinTime.com

    This lasagna soup looks amazing! Yummm! Pinning! I love how Italian Sausage tastes in soups like Italian Sausage Soup http://www.munchkintime.com/italian-sausage-soup/ 🍲🍲🍲Can’t wait to try this lasagna soup recipe!😋😋😋 It’s a perfect soup to make on a cloudy days like today! 🍂🍂🍂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I agree! And your soup looks amazing too – love your pics. 📷

      • Love From MunchkinTime.com

        Thank you ☺️

  15. Shelby

    I’m just having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that there’s people who don’t like soup… haha I think I could live on soup. I make a different veggie filled soup each week so we can eat it for lunches and have it on hand in case we need a quick meal (to avoid hitting fast food places)

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ha! I know I love soup and leftover soup ❤️

    • Sara

      Me too! My SO is very sick with GI issues and he can barely eat.

      I’ve been making him every “gentle” soup that I can think of with homemade broth and the best ingredients I can find. 😀

  16. jhnicole

    Love it. Thanks for sharing and love reading the veggies options going to try it.Love lasagna.

  17. Lori Gazerro

    Top with garlic bread cut into cubes…it is delicious!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s genius! Thanks Lori

  18. Michelle

    Would this freeze well?

    • Lindsey

      Did you try?

  19. Courtney

    I’m not sure if my family likes ricotta cheese. We don’t usually put it in our lasagna. Is there another type of cheese that could be substituted?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure – cream cheese, goat cheese, or fresh mozzarella. I’d use a cheese they like 🙂 You can omit all together and instead use a little cream in the soup. The original recipe actually uses some cream with the broth. hope that helps.

      • Courtney

        Ok, thanks so much. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Alaina

      My mom always use mozzarella and cottage cheese instead of ricotta in her lasagna

  20. andiplanplan

    Hi Lina! This looks delicious! Would this be a soupie that I could have in the morning instead of the Eggs and Breads some days? Also, what is a good dried oregano that’s good to have in the morning for breakfast?

    • Sara

      Penzey’s has the best oregano.

  21. Winnie

    Hi Lina, I made the soup for dinner tonight. It was a bomb. Hubby loved it and he ate 3 bowls. I didn’t crush the lasagna enough and the pieces were too big. Hubby cooked some shells and put in the soup. Yum! Thank you for this simple and delicious soup

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great Winnie! Thanks for sharing 😀 I’m so glad.

  22. mamasweetpea08

    thank you so much. the whole family enjoyed this and it was the perfect comfort food on a cold fall night like tonight. i’m also pleased I didn’t have to spend time layering and spreading and waiting for the oven. will keep this for sure. thank you

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh I’m so happy. Thanks for reporting back 😀

  23. Cg

    Any way to skip the crushed tomatoes? This sounds so good but I can’t eat the tomatoes like that. Maybe more paste and broth?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes I think that’d work! Or even some tomato or pasta sauce.

  24. Stephanie

    Would you use sweet or hot Italian sausage? Or personal preference?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I would say personal preference – I think I used mild 😀

  25. Amy

    Made this 2 nights ago for dinner and it was fabulous! I didn’t have crushed tomatoes so I used a can of tomato sauce and a can of stewed. I also added fresh spinach and a bayleaf. Even better the next day. A keeper for sure!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s so great! Thanks for sharing 😀

    • Connie

      Yes, I made a very similar recipe from PInterest. You can find it under Carlsbad Cravings. It has a few extra ingredients, like the bay leaf you mentioned, and I think that’s what makes it extra tasty.

  26. CJ

    Had no idea tomato paste came in a tube so thanks for that tip! Is it found near the canned tomato paste? Or is it refrigerated?

    • Lina D

      Yes near canned. Look up on top row 👍🏻

    • Mel R.

      Hunt’s sells something called “Recipe Ready” Tomato Paste. It’s a box of 6 pouches that are 2 TBSP each. I found it at WM.

  27. Mel R.

    Can’t wait to try this! I’m gonna make it using a bag of Jumbo Shells that I’ve been wanting to stuff, but haven’t gotten around to it.

  28. kayteedid

    I had every ingredient except the lasagna noodles, so I substituted those with ditalini and it turned out fabulous! Thanks for the inspiration!

  29. jessica

    I made this and it was the bomb.com

    • Lina D

      Yes!!!! That’s awesome

  30. Antoinette

    Got it. I think I am going to make thus soup today. Yummy!!!!!

  31. Renee

    Mmmm! I love anything with Italian sausage in it. I made Italian stuffed bell peppers last week with Italian sausage and Parmesan couscous. It was so good!

  32. Lola

    I cooked this recipe several times. And it is a winner in our house! Everyone’s loves it and it’s delicious! Thanks for reposting!

    • Lina D

      That’s so great! Thanks for sharing Lola!

  33. Jen

    Made it for lunch today. Way too bland for my family’s taste. Needs a lot more seasoning.

  34. Anthony M.

    This looks great!

  35. Chris

    Lina, you are on fire today! 🔥 Between this and the air fryer tutorial, I’ve fallen in love with your posts.

    • Lina D

      Oh thanks for your kind comment! I appreciate you reading my posts.

  36. Donna

    My husband is diabetic & we have a similar recipe that doesn’t use the noodles & I use Bulk Sausage instead of the Italian Sausage. It is low carb/protein friendly for him. We just made it in the Crockpot last night. Yummy!!!

  37. Nikki

    Made it tonight.. it was a huge hit!! 🤗

    • Lina D

      Hooray 😃

  38. Melissaan

    • Lina D

      That is such great news! Thanks for sharing 👍

  40. Danette

    Delicious! Just had for dinner it was a hit. Next time will use rotini noodles and add the ricotta (subbed today for mozzarella). Thanks Lina, keep the recipes coming!
