Lasagna Soup

This soup is SO darn good! Very family friendly – my kids love it! The dollop of ricotta on top really makes it! I used chicken sausage which gave it such great flavor. I’ve included stove top, Instant Pot and Slow Cooker directions.

Some of my favorite soups are those that are adapted from classic meals. A few examples of this: Stuffed Pepper Soup, Baked Potato Soup, Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup, and in my cookbook I have a delicious recipe for stuffed cabbage soup.

What I love about turning classic dishes like lasagna into soup is that it’s a great way to enjoy those dishes with less calories. It’s also quicker and easier, and since it’s all made in one pot, easy cleanup up. Now that’s a recipe for dinner success!

Variations and Tips

  • To make it vegetarian you can leave the sausage out.
  • Swap the sausage for ground turkey or beef.
  • You can use any cut of pasta in place of broken lasagna noodles.
  • Refrigerate for up to 4 nights. The pasta may soak up some of the liquid, you can adjust by adding more broth.
