One Pot Lasagna Soup (Video!)

This EASY Lasagna Soup tastes just like lasagna with layers of cheesy noodles smothered in rich marinara infused with garlic, onion and Italian spices all smothered Parmesan, mozzarella and ricotta  - drool - and all you have to do is brown your beef, dump in the ingredients and simmer away! You might never go back to traditional lasagna again!

Notes

 
*I love lasagna noodles in this recipe - they are slurpilicious! You can also replace the noodles with 2 1/2 cups uncooked small shells if desired and simmer for less time.
**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.
