True confession time: I am not much of a soup fan. Oh, a scrumptious French onion soup, all cheesy and gooey, is a nice starter course now and then. If we’re having grilled cheese, I love to have a small bowl of cream of tomato soup with it. It’s simply ideal for dunking! But, I am not one for sitting down to a bowl of soup for lunch on the regular.
Lately though, I’ve been trying out more soup recipes. They seem to be that perfect bit of comfort food that I’m craving these days. And this One Pot Hearty Lasagne Soup is the ultimate hug in a bowl. Delicious and oh so easy to prepare, it’s a filling soup. Add a piece of crusty bread and you’ve got a complete meal!
One Pot Hearty Lasagne Soup Recipe
Hearty and Delicious One Pot Lasagne Soup
Simple to make, but hearty and delicious, this one pot lasagne soup is nearly a full meal in itself. Add some crusty bread and you're good to go!
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1/2 lb Italian sausage casing removed
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 tbsp oregano
- 1 tbsp basil
- 1/2 tsp parsley
- 1/2 tsp rosemary
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 6 oz tomato paste 1 small can
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 28 oz crushed tomatoes 1 can - I highly recommend San Marzano tomatoes
- 24 oz marinara sauce 1 jar
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- 6 lasagne noodles Broken into bite sized pieces. Add a couple extra if you like it even more "noodley".
- 1/2 cup ricotta
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
Heat up the olive oil and saute the onion in it until soft.
Add the Italian sausage and ground beef.
Continue cooking until meat is browned.
Drain off any excess fat.
Now, add in the garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, pepper, and tomato paste.
Cook for 2 minutes.
Add the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, marinara sauce, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and lasagne noodles.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about half an hour, until the lasagne noodles are cooked.
Stir in the cheeses and continue simmering for another 20 minutes until cheese is melted and soup is heated through.
Notes: You might want more ricotta and mozzarella cheese for topping your soup when you serve it!
I find the San Marzano tomatoes do make quite a difference in taste.
If you do add a couple extra lasagne noodles, you can easily stretch this to 8 servings instead of 6.
Add this to your meal plan rotation. Don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients – it’s so simple to make! The end result is scrumptious and filling. It’s perfect for those nights when you have a hankering for lasagna but not enough time to make a pan of it.
