With lasagna soup, you can enjoy all the comforting flavours of lasagna in a fraction of the time.
How to make lasagna soup
- Olive oil
- 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
Step 1: 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 two cloves of garlic, ground beef, sausage, salt and pepper, along with any seasoning you want. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, until the meat is browned.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: 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 and enjoy! We recommend adding a dollop of ricotta cheese on top if for some added texture.
So, the next time you're in the mood for a hearty, comforting meal, grab a pot and these simple ingredients and whip up a batch of viral lasagna soup. Who knows, it might just become your new go-to recipe for a cozy night in!
