Ingredients

One Pot Lasagna Soup ingredients.

You only need a few simple ingredients to help you make this simple soup recipe! All of these ingredients are easy to find at your local grocery store. 

  • Beef: I like to use lean ground beef for this recipe. I usually purchase ground chuck or ground round. 
  • Pasta: I like to use Mafalda pasta, but, you can also use broken lasagna noodles since the Mafalda pasta can be hard to find. 
  • Ricotta Cheese: I like to use whole milk ricotta cheese for the best flavor and texture, but, a lower fat option would work also. 

Substitutions

Protein: Instead of using ground beef, you could also use Italian sausage, or even ground turkey to make this easy recipe. 

Cottage Cheese: If you are not a fan of ricotta cheese, you can use small curd cottage cheese instead. 

Variations / Options / Add-Ins

Here are a few different ways that you can change up this recipe to make it your own. 

Gluten-free: To make this gluten-free, simply swap out the pasta for gluten-free lasagna noodles. 

Add Vegetables: You can also add some vegetables to this soup like zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, or bell peppers. 

Add Spice: To make the soup a bit spicier, you could add some red pepper flakes.

How to Make One Pot Lasagna Soup

Making this recipe is so simple. Just follow the instructions below and you will have a tasty soup in no time at all. 

Step 1: Brown the ground beef

Pro Tips

Here are a few tips to make sure that your soup turns out perfectly every time that you make it. 

  • Use low-sodium broth for a lighter flavor. 
  • Make sure that you don’t overcook the noodles – they should be al dente and not mushy. 
  • It’s important to brown the ground beef completely before you start to make this soup.
  • You could also garnish this soup with a sprinkle of fresh basil, parmesan cheese, or fresh parsley. 
  • If you are using a super lean meat like turkey breast, add a little olive oil to your pot so that your meat doesn’t stick while you are browning. 
  • I like to drain the excess fat off the ground beef before I add all the remaining ingredients. 
  • If you want to add more seasoning to this recipe you can use dried basil, thyme, rosemary, or oregano for more flavor. 
  • If you don’t have beef broth, you can use chicken broth or vegetable broth instead. 
  • Add the salt and pepper to suit your taste.
