Lasagna Soup Recipe Notes

  • Meat: I used 80/20 ground beef for this recipe, but Italian sausage or ground turkey would be delicious alternatives.
  • Tomatoes: Instead of crushed tomatoes, try diced tomatoes or even tomato sauce.
  • Vinegar: Balsamic vinegar adds sweetness and acidity that compliments the tomatoes perfectly.
  • Red Pepper Flakes: I love the spice that red pepper flakes add, but these are completely optional!
  • Noodles: Use standard lasagna noodles (not the no-boil kind) that have a normal cooking time of about 10 minutes.

Can I use any kind of ground meat?

Yes! You can easily make this soup with ground chicken, turkey or bison. It will turn out delicious whatever you use! You could even make it with plant-based ground ‘meat’.

How can I prevent the noodles from sticking and burning to the bottom of the Instant Pot?

The lasagna noodles should be added in last to the Instant Pot so that they are not resting on the bottom. Make sure that they are full submerged in the liquid so that they cook fully.

Can I make this soup on the stovetop?

Yes! It will take a little longer than the Instant Pot method, but it will still turn out great. Check out this Lasagna Soup recipe for full instructions

What is the best way to freeze lasagna soup?

It’s best not to freeze this soup, as the texture of the noodles will change quite considerably and they will break up. If you plan on freezing it, leave the noodles out and add them back in when you reheat to cook.

Tips!

  • Store soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Be sure to add in the noodles last so that they don’t stick to the pot. They should be fully submerged in the liquid.
  • If making ahead of time, let cool fully before storing.

Making this soup in the Instant Pot is so hassle free, not having to watching bubbling pots on the stovetop is a joy!

What do you garnish the soup with?

To serve, I love to top the soup with cheeses and some fresh basil. I like to use a mix of ricotta and parmesan, but a good cheddar will do the job nicely too.

How can I make a vegetarian version of lasagna soup?

You can use a plant based meat alternative like Beyond Meat to replace the beef, or you could totally omit it and add in other veggies like carrots and bell peppers to bulk it up. Just soften them at the same time as the onion.

What kind of noodles are best for lasagna soup?

Use regular lasagna noodles, not the no-boil ones. You can simply break up the lasagna sheets into smaller pieces, or, you can sometimes find mini lasagna noodles that would work great in this.
