Easy One Pot Lasagna Soup

This soup is my family's new favorite way to eat lasagna! Why fuss with all those layers when lasagna soup is just as good and so much easier?!



I know it's summer and we're supposed to be all about the no-bake treats and the ice cream and the summer salads. But this soup is SO GOOD, and I'll be darned if I have to wait until September to yell you all about it!

I've seen lasagna soup here and there on Pinterest and Instagram forever. But every time I scrolled past a recipe, I would think "why bother? why not just make lasagna? what's the difference?!"


Well, for those of you who are a bit skeptical (like I was), let me set your mind at ease.

Lasagna Soup IS different than lasagna, and I daresay-- it's even better!

Why? For one, I like the cheese to pasta and sauce ratio much better. Somehow, I feel like I get more cheese in every bite. Even though you're actually using LESS cheese! Which is something that actually makes this recipe a fan favorite of dieters, FYI.


The other thing that really separates lasagna from it's soupier cousin is the noodles. Yes, you do use the same noodles. But there are a couple of things I like better about the noodles in the soup: 1) there aren't any crunchy, burnt pieces. 2) It's less messy to eat smaller noodle pieces. And 3) you get a better ratio of pasta to sauce in soup form.

It's all win-win-win in my book.

So even though it's summer, and I know you're all dreaming of milkshakes and burgers, promise me you'll give this soup a try ASAP!!
