  • Use quality ingredients.
  • Choose high-quality canned tomatoes or use fresh tomatoes when in season. If you do use tomato sauce, you may want to add some additional diced tomatoes to the soup to create more texture.
  • Choose a pasta that can hold up well in soup, like fusilli, penne, or rigatoni. For more, check out our ‘Types of Pastas’ article.
  • Brown the meat. If you are using ground beef, sausage, or turkey, make sure to brown it well before adding it to the soup. This will help bring out the flavors.
  • Make your own broth. You can use beef or chicken broth as a base, but you can also add vegetable broth for extra flavor.
  • You can also use ready-made broth.
  • You can add some vegetables like onions, carrots, celery, zucchini, or spinach.
  • Layer the flavors. First, sauté the onions and garlic, then add the meat and cook until browned. Add the vegetables, herbs, and spices, tomatoes and broth. Finally, add in the pasta.
  • Add the noodles last. Otherwise, they may get mushy. You can also cook the noodles separately and add them to each serving bowl before ladling in the soup.
  • Use fresh herbs and spices like basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic to give the soup a rich and complex flavor.
  • Let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. This will also help the pasta cook and absorb the flavors.
  • Top with cheese. Use grated mozzarella, parmesan, or a combination of both to add a creamy texture to the soup.
  • Let the soup rest. After cooking the soup, let it rest for 10–15 minutes before serving. This will help the flavors meld together and make for an even more delicious soup.

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.
