I have quite fond memories of eating lasagna growing up. However, these fond memories included eating lasagna on a weekend because lasagna takes way, way too long to make on a weeknight with both parents working outside of the home. When my mom or dad would whip up their lasagna, though, it would fill the house with the most delicious aroma and I used to be so excited waiting for the lasagna to be finished. I have an easier recipe I use for lasagna now, but I thought it would be fun to experiment a little and whip up a one pot lasagna soup recipe.
Now that we’re into the colder months, soups are what I want night and day! Something to warm me up and something to fill up my belly– both of which soup does such a good job! I know you probably won’t believe me until you make it, but this soup is so easy to make!
(And so delicious to eat, too!)
One Pot Lasagna Soup Recipe
1. 1lb of lean ground beef
2. 1 jar of Bertolli Riserva Marinara sauce
3. 1 onion, diced
4. 3 garlic cloves, minced
5. 5 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
6. 1 32oz can of diced tomatoes
7. 1 small can of tomato paste
8. 1 tablespoon dried basil
9. 1 tablespoon dried oregano
10. 8 uncooked lasagna noodles broken into 2″ pieces
11. Salt and pepper to taste
1. Put a large dutch oven or a large pot over medium heat. Brown ground beef with diced onion until beef is cooked thoroughly. Add garlic.
2. Add Bertolli Riserva Marinara sauce, chicken broth, diced toamtoes, spices, and lasagna noodles.
3. Stir occasionally and add can of tomato paste.
4. Cook until lasagna noodles are soft.
5. Garnish with fresh basil and mozzarella cheese.
Cook time: 30 minutes
Needless to say, this dish makes an insanely easy weeknight meal for all you busy moms and dads out there. 30 minutes is about the maximum amount of time I have and am willing to wait when I get home from work. By the time I get home there’s been about 5 and a half hours between lunch and dinner and I’m usually just on the verge of becoming hangry. It’s a serious ailment 😉
Makes great leftovers, too!
