If you don’t have time to make a sauce, I suggest using Rao’s tomato sauce or Marinara (not sponsored). It’s the only one I use. It’s has the perfect blend of seasonings, so there’s no need to add additional seasonings. I usually just add a teaspoon of sugar and that’s it.

Lasagna soup ingredients

Broken lasagna noodles, Marzano tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, ground beef  onions, garlic, fresh parsley and seasonings.

The ricotta mixture consists of parmesan, mozzarella cheese, ricotta, fresh parsley, heavy whipping cream, parmesan, heavy cream, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper. No need to boil the lasagna separately, (unless you love to wash dishes) because the noodles are cooked in the pot with the soup! It’s called a one pot lasagna for a reason 🙂

How to make it

The ingredient list in this one pot lasagna soup may seem a lil long, but all you need to do is add all of the ingredients to one pot. I promise it’s not complicated.

  6. Cover and set heat to low. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the lasagna noodles are tender. Feel free to season with salt and pepper or additional seasonings. Serve the soup with the ricotta mixture. 

The Ricotta mixture
