We are lasagna lovers in this house, but sometimes I don’t feel like putting it all together..... bring on lasagna soup! An easy and less messy version that is SO GOOD!
Let’s get started!

Total Time40 minutes
1 tablespoon oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 jar (24 ounces) pasta sauce
4 cups beef broth
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
12 ounces noodles (Mafalda noodles are great or you can use lasagna noodles broken)
1/2 cup half & half or heavy cream
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup italian cheese blend, shredded
Ricotta for topping (optional)
1. Start with a large pot, add in oil and then chopped onion. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until partly translucent. Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute.
2. Add in ground beef and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally. Pour in pasta sauce, 4 cups beef broth, crushed tomatoes, and stir to combine. Add in Mafalda noodles and allow soup to simmer for 8 minutes, or until noodles are al dente.
