What Is Lasagna Soup?
Lasagna soup is a soup that combines the flavors of traditional lasagna in a warm and comforting bowl. It contains many of the same ingredients as lasagna, such as tomatoes, ground meat (usually beef or sausage), pasta, and cheese. But it is served in soup form.
This soup is a hearty and comforting dish that is perfect for cold weather.
What Kind of Pasta Should Be Used for Lasagna Soup?
When making lasagna soup, it is best to use a pasta that will hold up well to the soup, such as fusilli, penne, or rigatoni. This type of pasta has a firm shape and texture. This helps the pasta in the soup hold up without becoming mushy or falling apart. Avoid using delicate pasta like angel hair or spaghetti. They tend to break down easily in soup.
