I’ll answer some common questions about this lasagna soup so that you can make this perfectly at home tonight without any roadblocks! 

Can I use an Italian seasoning mix for this cheesy lasagna soup?

If you don’t have all of those dried herbs and spices on hand feel free to substitute some Italian seasoning for this mixture. The pre-mixed varieties are usually full of those same types of ingredients so you’ll be all set. 1-2 Tbsp depending on your tastes will suffice.

Can the noodles be cooked with the soup? 

If you really want to make this a one-pot meal you can simmer the noodles in the soup itself instead of cooking them on their own. Here are a few things to consider if you are going to do this: 

  • Will you finish all of the soup in one sitting? If not, cook the noodles separately and add them on a portion at a time. You can keep the noodles mixed with a bit of olive oil in the refrigerator for leftovers. 
  •  Do you mind waiting an extra 15 minutes? The pasta will take a bit longer to cook in the soup itself. If you have an extra 15 minutes just simmer them right in the broth, add an extra cup of water so they have enough moisture and you’re ready to go. 
  • Do you mind soggy pasta for leftovers? If you don’t mind the fact that the noodles will get a bit softer after a day or two in the refrigerator you can just cook it all together, if you prefer them to be a bit more al dente even for the leftovers, keep them separate and add them as you need them for each serving. 

Here we see the lasagna noodles being added to the mix for our cheesy lasagna soup.

Other tips to consider: 

Now that you know how to make lasagna soup here are some tips to mix things up a bit! 

  • You can use Italian sausage in place of or alongside the beef, it tastes great and is a new flavor if you decide to make this often like we do! 
  • Use whatever kind of Parmesan cheese you have, it will be delicious. Romano will work as well. 
  • Substitute in ground turkey or ground chicken if you need to cut back the fat on this recipe. They’ll still absorb the flavors of the broth and make for a delicious, but lighter version.
