Lasagna soup has been gaining popularity recently and for good reason! This soup has all the flavors, spices, and comfort of lasagna but the simplicity and ease of soup. A couple of viral videos on TikTok are reminding everybody of just how easy and delicious a hearty lasagna soup can really be!

This lasagna soup is made with sautéed onion, garlic, and ground beef in a robust tomato sauce with lasagna noodles and creamy ricotta cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. It has a rich, homemade meat tomato sauce with Italian spices and three creamy cheeses to make it extra savory.

There are a couple of different versions floating around on Instagram and TikTok, but this is my delicious take on the viral lasagna soup. You are going to love it!

What is TikTok Lasagna Soup?

Lasagna soup is a comforting dish that takes inspiration from the classic Italian lasagna but transforms it into a warm and hearty soup.

This popular recipe typically includes the key elements of traditional lasagna, such as ground meat, tomatoes, pasta, mozzarella cheese, and ricotta cheese but in a soup format. It is absolutely delicious and everyone loves it!

Lasagna soup ingredients:

It is so much easier to make lasagna soup than it is to make homemade lasagna. Here are the simple ingredients that make this lasagna soup recipe so amazing!

  • Olive oil, onion, and garlic: Sautéed together, these three ingredients give an incredibly strong and flavorful base for the lasagna soup. The onion should be sautéed until completely softened so that the onions are crunchy in the soup.
  • Ground beef: The ground beef will help add heartiness to the soup and is key in giving it the classic lasagna flavor. If you prefer, you could also use ground turkey to lower the fat and up the protein of this soup recipe. You can also use half Italian sausage and half ground beef.
  • Crushed tomatoes: This is the base of the soup! It’s important that you use a can of unflavored crushed tomatoes since we will be adding in our own spices.
  • Chicken broth: This works as a thinner to the soup. It also brings an earthy and hearty flavor, complimenting the lasagna well.
  • Spices: These include salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and red chili flakes. You can adjust the spices according to your preference. For example, if you want a little more kick to your soup, add more red chili flakes. These spices are really where the soup gets its Italian lasagna flavor and make it shine!
  • Noodles: The noodles in this recipe are what make it “lasagna” soup. If you would rather do another smaller noodle then you can substitute out the lasagna noodles.
  • Cheese: This soup uses a mixture of ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan. These cheeses are soft and melt perfectly into the soup (along with the heavy cream, if you choose to add any) to make this soup creamy, cheesy, and rich.

How to make Homemade TikTok Lasagna Soup:

  1. Start by sautéing onion in olive oil until it starts to become soft. Add garlic and sauté for only 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until it browns and cooks through. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Add crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, and Italian spices. Let it simmer.
  3. There are two options for the lasagna noodles. They can be cooked separately according to package instructions or the dried noodles can be added straight to the pot to be cooked in the sauce. I prefer to cook mine separately in another pot and then add my cooked noodles to the soup. If you choose to cook the noodles in the sauce, you will most likely need more chicken broth, about 1 cup. 
  4. Make a creamy cheese mixture using ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan Cheese. I like to season this mixture with some garlic salt to give it extra flavor. 
  5. Serve warm and give each serving a generous dollop of ricotta parmesan mixture.

Lasagna Soup FAQ’s:

Here are some common questions people have when making this lasagna soup recipe…

Can I just cook the lasagna noodles in the soup?

Yes! I do suggest cooking the lasagna noodles in another pot but you can skip a step and cook the lasagna noodles right in the soup. I suggest breaking the lasagna noodles into bite-size pieces before adding them to the soup and making sure the soup is hot enough to cook the noodles.

Can I use fresh herbs in this homemade lasagna soup recipe?

Absolutely! Fresh herbs makes everything taste more vibrant and fresher. I love to use fresh basil both in the soup and as a garnish as well. Since dried herbs are more concentrated, you need less dried herbs than you do fresh herbs so make sure to add extra fresh herbs to the soup.

Can I use ground turkey or chicken instead?

Yes! You can use either ground turkey or chicken in this recipe. You can even use Italian sausage.

How to store lasagna soup

You can make this lasagna soup up to 5 days ahead of time, and it can easily be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Can you freeze lasagna soup?

Yes! Lasagna soup freezes very well. I suggest putting it into a freezer-safe container to avoid freezer burn. When ready to serve, just let it come to room temperature and then reheat it in a pot on the stove or in the microwave.

What to serve with Lasagna Soup:

There’s nothing better than a warm comforting bowl of soup in the winter and pairing it with homemade bread makes it even better!

    Delicious! I pretty much make this weekly now. I use chickpea noodles instead, cook a batch separately and add it in the bowl whenever we want some. Husband loves it too. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. 5 stars
    Sooo good. I subbed ground chicken for the beef, and a jar of marinara for the crushed tomatoes (that’s what I had on hand). The servings we didn’t eat froze well too. Will make this a regular rotation.

  3. 5 stars
    Amazing, My family had 2nds & 3rds. Good thing I made a double batch. Thank you for your wonderful recipes. They never disappoint.

  4. I made this recipe with a few changes. Turkey sausage, whole wheat noodles, low fat ricotta and skim mozzarella. It was delicious!

  5. 5 stars
    This soup was delicious! We had it on New Year’s Eve and it was a hit – we’ll definitely make again and again! Thank you Melissa Stadler… you create amazing recipes and I talk you and your website up to all my friends!

    A few tips: I used whole peeled tomatoes, and blended them in the blender first before putting them into the pot with the other ingredients. Makes for a really smooth soup. Next time I will omit the Mozzarella cheese from the pot of soup, and instead garnish in the individual bowls of soup. It was a bit of a disaster to clean the pot, ladle, and scrubbing brush used to clean the pot. I also like to cook the meat separately and drain the fat off before adding to the onions and garlic. Last tip, keep the cooked noodles separate from the soup. Add them into your already warmed soup when ready to eat. Definitely like my noodles al dente. If added to the soup pot and there are leftovers, they tend to get too soggy for my taste. Hope this helps. Thanks again Melissa for putting fabulous recipes on our table… you are a gift to all who make your recipes and eat your food! (love your parents too!)
