Lasagna Soup is the perfect cozy meal. It’s loaded with all the things you love about lasagna, but it’s way easier to make.

Talk about comfort food season. We are here! And I am here for it. Although I do have to say I prefer the warm summer weather over the winter weather. But, I do love the cozy winter meals. This Lasagna Soup is one of my favorites. It’s loaded with all of the delicious lasagna flavors, but with much less work.

The details

Browning the beef

I begin by making this lasagna soup by browning the beef. Certainly you can cook the onion first, if you want a few less dishes. However, the reason I begin the soup this way is because by cooking the beef first, the onion gets to cook in the delicious flavors from the beef fat. Essentially this maximizes the flavor of the soup.

Cooking the onion, then adding in the remaining ingredients

If you choose to brown the beef first, you’ll remove the beef from the pan, then add in the onion. Cook the onion for 5 minutes, then add in the garlic and cook additional minute. This additional minute helps bring out the garlic flavor.

Next, you’ll add the beef back in, then add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the lasagna noodles and spinach.

Cooking the lasagna noodles

Bring the soup to a boil, then add in the lasagna noodles. Reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Remove the soup from the heat and stir in the spinach leaves, if you are adding these.

serving

In a small bowl, mix together the three cheeses (ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella) until combined. Serve the soup hot with a dollop of cheese mixture on top. Add fresh basil and enjoy!
