Lasagna soup is a one-pot dish with all the basic ingredients you use to make lasagna but without the traditional (and more time-consuming) form. The onions, seasoning, meat, sauce, cheese and even the pasta noodles are all cooked together. Therefore, the whole thing comes together so much faster than traditional lasagna.
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound Italian sausage
Pinch of oregano (or other spices)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups marinara sauce
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 box of lasagna noodles
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
- Sauté the onions and meat. Heat the oil in a pot or deep skillet over medium heat, add chopped onions and sauté for 5-7 minutes. Add garlic, ground beef, sausage, salt and pepper, along with any seasoning you want (I used a healthy pinch of oregano). Cook for another 5-7 minutes, until the meat is browned.
- Add in the sauce components. To the same pot, add the tomato paste, marinara sauce, chicken broth and heavy cream. Stir and bring to a boil.
- Add the pasta. Break the lasagna noodles into medium-sized pieces and add to the boiling pot. Stir occasionally and let cook for around 10 minutes, or until the noodles become al dente.
- Mix in the cheeses and serve. Once the pasta is al dente, add in your parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and stir. The consistency should be cheesy and gooey. Serve in bowls, topped with fresh basil.
