EASY ONE POT LASAGNA SOUP

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that all it requires is one pot. And we all know how much I love one pot meals, crockpot meals, instant pot meals, meal prepping – you name it. All for the love of simplicity. Now that the cold autumn/winter months are upon us, I feel that I am forever going to be basking in bowls and bowls of warm, savory soups to keep warm. There is just something about a warm bowl of goodness like this that warms me to my core; heart and soul.

With autumn now in full force, it won’t be long before the whirlwind craze of the holidays hits us all. Tons of parties, events, traveling, shopping, and so forth. Nothing but a blur of busy days and nights. That’s where easy, one pot meals like this come in handy! For those days you’re too tired to think of what to cook or you’re simply looking for something easy.

BEST LASAGNA SOUP RECIPE

As a food blogger (or even a cook), you are always faced with trials and errors when it comes to creating recipes. You dive into creating a recipe with curiosity on how things will turn out. When you’re halfway through the cooking/baking process, that curiosity can sometimes either turn to question or excitement. Obviously you’re always hoping for excitement – not just on how the dish will taste to you and others, but how it will present “itself” in photos, and then how well it will be received by your audience. Clearly you want the praise of your audience! For me, it’s not just my husband or family. It’s you guys!

But if you’re not a food blogger and you’re looking for praise and happy sounds at your table – then I guarantee you will receive them both with this recipe. Each bite is bursting with Italian flavors from the cheesy noodles cooked in the creamiest tomato sauce, to the ricotta cheese topping. This recipe will hit it out of the ballpark with your family.

It certainly did with my husband. Not only did he have two bowls, but he even went for a third. Now that is the excitement level with cooking that I mentioned above. When you can get someone to quietly eat without complaint (or make happy sounds with each bite), from adding this or that to a dish for extra flavor, and getting them to have another helping – that’s a home run meal!

To give him credit, we have smaller soup bowls for this very reason – to keep our portions smaller. HA!

TIPS ON MAKING THIS SOUP:

  • PASTA: This recipe calls for ‘Gigli’ noodles. I found mine at Trader Joes, but you can also find them online: Organic Italian Gigli Flowers (pasta). Or you can swap with 8-10 sheets of lasagna noodles, broken into bite-size pieces.
  • MEAT: I chose to use lean-ground beef in this recipe, but you are more than welcome to make it even leaner by using ground turkey or ground chicken. Or you can swap all and add ground Italian sausage for a bunch of flavor.
  • BROTH: Being that I chose to use ground beef for this recipe, I also used beef broth. You can use beef broth for either ground beef or ground turkey, but I would recommend using chicken broth if using ground chicken.
  • LIQUID: Add water (or more broth) to the pot, as needed. Keep in mind that pasta will absorb a lot of the liquid while it is cooking, as well as continue to absorb liquid while it sits in the soup.
  • REHEATING/LEFTOVERS: If reheating, simply add 1-2 cups of liquid (broth or water) at a time to the pot with the leftover lasagna soup to make it “soupy” again. At this point, it may start to taste diluted, so I recommend adding an additional can of tomato sauce and seasonings, to taste, to keep the flavors fully present.
  • SALT: If using low-sodium beef broth, low-sodium tomato sauce, or anything low-sodium in this recipe, you may want to add salt, to taste, throughout the cooking process.  If you don’t use low-sodium products in this recipe, then you may want to omit adding any additional salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic, approximately 3-4 cloves
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 4 cups low-sodium beef broth, 1 (32 oz) carton, *see notes below
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1.5 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt, more or less, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp dried basil
  • 4 cups Gigli pasta, or sub 8 lasagna sheets, broken into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups water, more or less, as needed
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped

Instructions

  1. Place a large soup pot with olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the olive oil is heated, add the chopped onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Or until translucent.

  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for one minute. Add the ground beef, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon as it begins to brown. Once the beef has browned, drain off any excess fat (if desired or using regular ground beef rather than lean).

  3. Add the beef broth, tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, water*(see notes below), and remaining seasonings. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.

  4. Add the pasta and cook it according to the packages instructions for 'al dente'. Approximately 7-10 minutes. Taste test for doneness at 7-8 minutes. Add the chopped spinach the last few minutes the pasta is cooking and allow it to cook until wilted.

  5. Garnish each bowl of soup with shredded mozzarella cheese, a scoop of ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and freshly chopped parsley.

Recipe Notes

 

  • LIQUID: Add any additional water (or broth), as needed, throughout the cooking process. The pasta will absorb a lot of the liquid as it is cooking and will continue to absorb water as it sits.
  • REHEATING: If reheating leftovers, place your soup pot or a large enough pot over medium heat. Add the leftover lasagna soup to the pot and add 1 cup of broth at a time until it reaches a "soupy" consistency again. At this point, the flavors will start to become diluted from adding more and more liquid (due to the pasta absorbing so much liquid while it cooks, sits, and cooks again). I recommend "fluffing" the soup back up with additional ingredients from the recipe such as: tomato sauce or diced tomatoes, salt, and seasonings - to taste. When I reheated this, I added what I had on hand - beef broth, diced tomatoes, chopped spinach, a few dashes of salt, and I eyeballed adding more herbs. It's important to taste test and keep the main ingredients present to keep the flavor of the initial soup.
  • SALT: If using low-sodium beef broth, low-sodium tomato sauce, or anything low-sodium in this recipe, you may want to add salt, to taste, throughout the cooking process.  If you don't use low-sodium products in this recipe, then you may want to omit adding any additional salt.
  • BROTH: Being that I chose to use ground beef for this recipe, I also used beef broth. You can use beef broth for either ground beef or ground turkey, but I would recommend using chicken broth if using ground chicken.
  • PASTA: This recipe calls for ‘Gigli’ noodles. I found mine at Trader Joes, but you can also find them online: Organic Italian Gigli Flowers (pasta). Or you can swap with 8-10 sheets of lasagna noodles, broken into bite-size pieces.
  • MEAT: I chose to use lean-ground beef in this recipe, but you are more than welcome to make it even leaner by using ground turkey or ground chicken. Or you can swap all and add ground Italian sausage for a bunch of flavor.
