Pasta or Soup?

As much as I love a good Easy Lasagna recipe, some days are just soup days. Why not both in this family-pleasing, CrockPot Lasagna Soup recipe!

Lasagna Soup is meaty and hearty loaded with rich tomato flavor and all of the same fixings I add into my lasagna. Once cooked, this is topped with the ultimate combo of cheeses… mozzarella, fresh parmesan and ricotta. If you can, be sure to get fresh herbs to sprinkle on top (especially basil). It really makes it delicious!

Quick Prep Time

To Make Lasagna Soup: This takes 25 minutes to prepare and a lot of the prep can be done the night before. That means you can just pop this easy lasagna soup recipe in the slow cooker (I use a 6qt Crockpot for this recipe) before you leave for work. I brown the meat and onions, chop the veggies and have all of the canned goods lined up. In the morning, it just takes a few minutes to put into the slow cooker before you head out to start your day!

To Make Lasagna Soup on the Stove Top: Prepare beef/onions as directed. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low 30-45 minutes. Stir in cooked pasta and spinach and simmer an additional 3-5 minutes to heat through. Serve as directed.

Toppings That Steal the Show

Of course thissoup is nothing short of incredible, but I really think the toppings steal the show! There is something totally irresistible about melted cheese and herbs meeting your spoon first.

FLAVOR TIP

Speaking of cheese, this lasagna soup recipe calls for Parmesan rinds. If you’ve never bought parmesan rinds, they are exactly what they sound like…. rinds from a large wheel of parmesan cheese. Ask at the deli, you can often buya container of them for just a couple of dollars.

I keep them in the freezer and toss one into sauces and soups to add flavor and richness. Next time you buy a piece of parmesan cheese and cut off the rind, just wrap it up and freeze it!

If you can’t find parmesan rinds, don’t worry, just add a sprinkle or two of fresh parmesan before serving.

Achieving the Perfect Pasta Texture

You might be wondering why I don’t just add the pasta into the soup and cook it along with the rest of the ingredients. This recipe was tested with various types (both brands and shapes) of pasta. I’ve found that I had the same problem as with Crock Pot Mac and Cheese and Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup, certain brands do not work well and can become very gummy in texture.

Cooking the pasta separately al dente (slightly firm) and giving it a few minutes to cook in the tomato broth produced the best lasagna soup. The noodles I used are called tripoline (you can find them at most Italian markets) however, you can use any shape of noodles you have on hand.
