Lasagna Soup Recipe Video
I looooove Italian food or even anything resembling Italian food from my Italian Vegetable Soup, Tomato Basil Soup, Million Dollar Baked Penne, Million Dollar Macaroni and Cheese Casserole, Zuppa Toscana Soup, Minestrone Soup and everything in between! And while lasagna is technically Italian, it has to be one of America’s favorite foods – and one of my favorite foods! For being a favorite, however, I hardly ever make traditional lasagna – so sad. I just can’t get into the time-consuming, tedious, layering.
But now, I am thrilled to introduce my “can’t-get-any-easier,” One Pot Lasagna Soup! I made this soup twice in a week because I am SO in love with it-and so is my very honest critic, Patrick, who lived in Italy for two years. Sometimes he is a little too honest, but he tells me it’s a good thing, because then I know when he really, really loves something. So as he sat spooning this Lasagna Soup into his mouth, repeating “So good, you nailed it. Insane, taste just like lasagna…,” I knew it was going in my back pocket of easy, “Patrick approved”, delicious recipes.
And it belongs in your back pocket too for all those busy nights when everyone is starting to get hangry (AKA hungry and tired) or simply any time you want to devour something extraordinary.
How to Make Lasagna Soup
To make this One Pot Lasagna Soup, simply brown your beef (or half Italian sausage if you like), onions and garlic…
Then add all your remaining ingredients – Prego Traditional Italian Sauce, crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, spices…
And lasagna noodles!
Now the list of ingredients might seem long, but you are just dumping and running as the sauce simmers, cooking the noodles, and infusing the whole soup with Prego Italian goodness that smells nothing less than heavenly! Prego not only elevates this One Pot Lasagna Soup and can be the answer to your weeknight dinner dilemma without sacrificing any flavor! Prego boasts rich flavor from real ingredients – no more bland, boring dinners!
Finally, top your soup with ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan – as little or as MUCH as you like and start slurping and shoveling, then repeat.

- Discard bay leaf and stir in heavy cream (optional) and 2-4 cups chicken broth to reach desired consistency. Garnish individual servings with desired amount of cheeses.
**If you want to omit the heavy cream but still would like a thicker soup then I suggest whisking 2 teaspoons cornstarch with some of the chicken broth and adding to the soup to simmer and thicken.
