Lasagna soup is a hearty and flavorful soup that captures the essence of traditional lasagna. It typically includes ground beef or Italian sausage, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, onion, herbs, and broken lasagna noodles, all simmered together in a savory broth. Some variations may also include vegetables like zucchini or spinach.
To make lasagna soup, you start by browning the meat in a large pot or Dutch oven, then adding the garlic and onion to cook until softened. Next, you add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and broth, along with the broken lasagna noodles and any additional vegetables or herbs. The soup is simmered until the noodles are cooked through and the flavors have melded together.
Lasagna soup is often served garnished with shredded cheese, fresh herbs, or a dollop of ricotta cheese. It is a satisfying and comforting dish that is perfect for chilly evenings or anytime you’re in the mood for a classic Italian meal in soup form.
