  • Carrot: Carrots contribute a touch of natural sweetness and vibrant colour to the soup, balancing the overall taste.
  • Bell pepper: The bell pepper also helps to add more flavour to the soup broth.
  • Crushed tomatoes: Canned crushed tomatoes bring a rich, thick consistency and robust tomato flavour, creating the essence of lasagna in liquid form!
  • Vegetable broth: Vegetable broth serves as the savoury base, providing a hearty foundation for the soup and infusing it with a depth of flavour.
  • Italian seasoning: This blend of herbs including oregano, basil, and thyme gives the soup that authentic lasagna flavour.
  • Parmesan cheese: Parmesan cheese is sprinkled on top of the soup for a rich and savoury taste.

How to make lasagna soup

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a pot then sauté the onion and garlic for a couple minutes. Then add the chopped carrots and peppers and continue to sauté for 3-4 minutes.

Step 2

Next add the crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning and vegetable broth and bring the soup to a light boil, then cover and let the soup simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.

Tip: while the soup cooks, cook the noodles.

Step 3

Blend the soup until smooth in blender or with an emulsion blender. Serve the soup with the Mafalda pasta, ricotta, basil and parmesan cheese.

How to store

*I recommend storing the soup broth and noodles separately. Storing the noodles in the broth will make the noodles mushy.

Fridge: Let the soup cool to room temperature then transfer the soup into airtight containers; glass ones with tight-fitting lids work best! Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Freezer: Lasagna soup can be frozen! Pour it into freezer-safe containers, leaving about an inch of space at the top to allow for expansion. Label with the date (always a good habit) and pop it into the freezer for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to reheat, it’s best to thaw overnight in the fridge. Then, warm it up on the stove, stirring occasionally.

Expert tips for making lasagna soup

  • Sauté to perfection: Begin by slowly sautéing your vegetables, especially the onions and garlic, in olive oil until they’re soft and translucent. This process releases their natural sugars, creating a deeper flavour profile for the entire soup!
  • Use good quality broth: Don’t skimp on the vegetable broth! A good-quality broth adds a rich depth of flavour. Consider making your own or opting for a store-bought version with low sodium and no artificial additives.
  • Use fresh basil: While dried Italian seasoning brings classic flavours, adding fresh basil at the end can make a world of difference. This provide a burst of freshness that perfectly complements the soup’s rich taste.
  • Cook the noodles separately: Mafalda noodles or any other pasta can absorb a lot of liquid and become overly soft if left in the soup for too long. To prevent this, cook the noodles separately and add them directly to the bowls of soup.
  • Add cheese on top: To get that true lasagna feel, serve with a dollop of ricotta and a sprinkle of parmesan on top. If mixing it into the soup, do it at the very end of the cooking process. Overheating can cause the cheese to separate, which might alter the texture of your soup.
