Lasagna Soup Recipe
When it comes to a cold night or just a long day when I want something that feels like a hug, it doesn’t get better than this soup recipe. It takes almost no time to make and the flavor is so good, you will think that it has simmered all day.
What is Lasagna Soup?
When you make this lasagna soup, you are making a delicious filling soup that has all of the things you love about lasagna in a comfort style soup. This soup is filled with lasagna noodles with ground beef and Italian sausage.
Can I Cook the Pasta in the Soup?
I like to cook the noodles according to the box. I make sure my noodles are cooked to perfection. Not too hard and definitely not soggy. I have heard of other people cooking the noodles in the soup. If you choose to do this, you do not want to let the noodles simmer for too long. Also, add about an extra cup of broth or water to the soup. This is because the noodles will soak up and absorb some of the liquid.
What if I Don’t Have All the Herbs
I am not using too many extra herbs in this recipe because I want to make sure it is something that is easy for anyone to make. If you find that you are missing some of the seasonings, you can also use an Italian Seasoning. Use about 1 tablespoon to equal the seasoning that I have used.
How to Freeze Lasagna Soup?
I love to be able to freeze soup. It is a great way to keep it on hand for anytime I need a fast meal. If I am planning on making this soup as a freezer meal, I tend to leave the pasta out and add it once I am ready to serve it. This is something that can be done with the cheese too. Another option is freezing the leftovers of the soup. If I have made a batch, I will freeze the batch in small batches that can be used as a single serving meals.
What Kind of Pasta Should I Use for Lasagna Soup?
The good thing about this soup is that you can use whatever type of pasta that you like. I am using lasagna noodles because I like to have that authentic feel to this soup, but you can use whatever type of noodles that you have on hand.
How to Serve Lasagna Soup
This soup is a great meal on its own. You can also serve it with cheesy bread or with garlic bread. A side salad is another great side dish for this dinner.
How to Reheat Lasagna Soup
This soup is extremely easy to reheat. You can reheat this soup in the microwave or on the stove top.
I like to reheat the soup and then add the cooked pasta in after the soup is heated and then heat for a few more minutes until the pasta is heated through.
If you have added the pasta to the soup already, you might find that you need to add a little more broth as you heat the soup.
