This easy lasagna soup recipe is a lasagna transformed into a one pot soup! It has all the traditional lasagna ingredients and flavors, but is even tastier and simple to make as a soup.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion (diced)
  • 5 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 8 lasagna noodles (broken into quarters)
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)

Optional, for topping:

  • Fresh chopped basil
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large stock pot or dutch oven over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once hot, brown and crumble the beef until cooked, about 7 - 10 minutes. Drain excess grease and set aside the beef.
  2. Add another tablespoon of oil to your pot. Once hot, add the onion and saute until translucent, about 3 - 4 minutes. 
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the tomato paste. 
  4. Add the cooked beef, broth, diced tomatoes (undrained), crushed tomatoes, basil, and oregano to the pot. Stir to mix.
  5. Bring the pot to a boil and add the noodles, roughly broken into fourths. Lightly boil, uncovered, for 8 - 10 minutes, until the noodles are cooked. Stir occasionally, scraping the bottom of the pot and keeping the noodles submerged. 
  6. Stir in the mozzarella and until melted. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Add additional chicken broth if a thinner soup is desired. 
  7. Serve immediately, optionally topped with chopped fresh basil, ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese.
