Do you love lasagna but hate how time consuming it is to make?  Even if you are more patient than me, and answered “no” to that question, I still know you’ll love this Lasagna Soup recipe!
It’s full of everything we love about classic lasagna, pasta noodles, Italian tomato flavored broth, ground beef, and lots of cheese. What’s not to love?

All Season Soup Eaters

Soup is my number one comfort food.  I make it year round, I see no point in only eating something I love only when it’s cold outside.  
I have a wide array of soup recipes here on my blog.  Another thing I enjoy making? Pasta.  Pasta of all kinds.  
Italian food is a popular choice in our house, and this Lasagna Soup hits both of those choices perfectly!

Lasagna Soup

I don’t know about you, but when I make lasagna, there are always a couple of broken noodles in the box, as well as a couple of extras that I didn’t need. I toss them in a Ziploc bag and keep add to them as I have more. Then when I get a hankering for some lasagna soup, I am ready! 

 Another thing I love about this soup is that you most likely have the ingredients are in your pantry right now.  A jar of spaghetti sauce, some canned diced tomatoes, bouillon, and spices.

It doesn’t get much easier.  Just dump everything in a soup pot or your slow cooker and Ta-Dah! Dinner!

I have been making this recipe for years.  The idea came from my friend Candi, who is a food blogger, too, at The Devilish Dish.  I changed it up a little bit because that’s just what I do.  Anytime she gives me a recipe, I know it’s going to be awesome.  Candi is an amazing cook.

We have been friends for a long time, like 23 years! She and I have so much in common, I swear God knew we needed to be friends and put her in that Scrapbooking class I was teaching back in 1997.

Can I use other noodles instead of lasagna noodles?

Absolutely! Not having lasagna noodles on hand shouldn’t hinder you in any way from making this Italian soup! Any sort of noodles will work. We love it with rotini noodles, and I have even made it with ziti or penne noodles. 

That’s one of the things I love about this leftover lasagna soup recipe, it’s so versatile.  I use jarred marinara spaghetti sauce in mine, but maybe you like yours a little spicer? Use a sauce that has some heat to it, or heck, you can even use homemade sauce!  

Go meatless by using lots of fresh or frozen veggies instead of ground beef.  Zucchini, carrots, onions all work well.
