Lasagna takes a new form in this warm and hearty lasagna soup. With all the flavors you love in lasagna and TONS of cheese!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 lb. ground Italian sausage
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (15 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 uncooked lasagna noodles, broken into bite-sized squares
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

More cheese please:

  • 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • A dollop of ricotta cheese for serving


  1. Over medium-high heat, saute onions, garlic and bay leaves until soft, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add sausage and tomato paste and stir to combine, breaking it up any lumps. Cook until sausage has browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in chicken stock and add diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, sugar and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the lasagna noodles in a separate pot until al dente. Drain and toss with olive oil so they don’t stick together.
  6. Add lasagna noodles to the soup, a couple at a time and stir at intervals so they don’t stick together.
  7. Add fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and heavy cream.
  8. Dish and serve hot topped with a dollop of ricotta/cottage cheese (optional) and more basil.

More cheese please:

  1. Top the bowls with mozzarella and broil or microwave to melt the cheese just before serving.
