Creamy Spicy Lasagna Soup – great for when you’re wanting lasagna…but not all the work. A mix of vegetables simmered with meat, spicy sausage, Italian seasonings, tomatoes, and lasagna noodles. Finish each bowl off with parmesan and serve with your favorite garlic bread. It’s warming and so delicious, just like lasagna, but lighter and easier.Spicy Lasagna Soup |

I so badly wanted to share a super classic, traditional style lasagna with you guys this year. It’s something I often make around the holidays when all of my family is in town because it serves so many people. I usually make one traditional lasagna with meat and white lasagna with just vegetables.

Lasagna can be time consuming to make, but also nice because once they’re in the oven, you’re pretty much done.

All that said, this week is just so busy. Layering up lasagnas is sometimes just too much.  So, I thought lasagna soup would be the perfect comprise. I even have a white lasagna soup I can make too, so it’s perfect.

And this is delicious. A also a little less heavy than a whole lasagna, so it’s nice for a simple weeknight dinner over the holidays!

Here are the details

What I love about this recipe is just how fast it really does come together. You need mostly one pot, then a pot to boil the noodles in.

I start with the veggies and cook those off, then add in the spices and meat. For the meat, I’ve really gotten into using ground bison lately, it’s so much healthier (bison even has lower cholesterol levels than chicken). It also has great flavor. But ground chicken or beef work great too! Then, for a little more flavor I use some spicy Italian sausage. My family loves this, but of course, you can use addition ground meat if you prefer not to cook with sausage.

Once the meat is added, next comes the tomatoes paste, wine, crushed tomatoes, and a bit of broth. Simmer this for few minutes, or longer if you have more time.

At this point the soup is pretty much complete, so you can let it cook over low heat to develop more flavor, or move onto the noodles.

Boil off the noodles, then stir them into the soup with a mix of Italian cheeses. I like to let the soup thicken a little, then ladle it into bowls with parmesan on top.

This is great to serve with a nice winter salad and garlic bread on the side.

The perfect dinner to entertain with this holiday season. You can prepare the base of the soup in advance, keep it on the stove all day, then add the noodles just before dinner.

Love dishes like this for holiday entertaining…they make life so easy! And my cousins all love soup, so this wil be great!

    This was so delicious! We added a bag of spinach at the end and served it with your Easy No Knead Bread. Another winner!

    This dish is phenomenal. I had to make some substitutions (more soy sauce instead of white miso paste, no chili paste, and olive oil for toasted sesame oil) and the flavor was still amazing. My husband, who does not like any type of Asian cuisine, even went back for seconds. This will be in our winter menu rotation. So delicious!!

        Thanks for the recipe.
        I made this with a few changes and plan to make it again with a few more.
        I swapped the celery for carrots to give it more of a bolognese taste and added a can of white cannelloni beans.
        Next time I will add another can of beans and leave out the red peppers and the provolone. The red peppers clash with the other flavors and the provolone doesn’t fully dissolve into the soup, creating a curdled look and a weird texture on the spoon.

    This recipe was so good! I left out the wine because I didn’t have any and I added about 1/2 cup of ricotta instead of the provolone. I think I would use ricotta every time going forward. It gave it such a nice flavor! This is now on rotation

    came out soo yummy! everyone loved it including my 16month old!
    i used a mix of chicken and beef bone broth. Also a fire roasted can of crushed tomatoes for a little more flavor. And Still was just as yummy with just ground turkey-no beef or sausage!
    Will be making this again and again.

    We love this recipe.

    I’m curious why you opted for chicken broth instead of beef?

    I just made some beef bone broth and will probably give it a go, but curious why you didn’t opt for it in the first place?

    This recipe is freakin delicious and has become a fast favorite in our house! Made a couple of tweaks based on some of the comments – used all sausage, added half a brick of cream cheese and a couple of big handfuls of spinach. Best part is that if you manage to have leftovers, it gets gets even better a day or two after making. Thanks for sharing this!!

    Great recipe! 12 lasagna noodles was barely enough for 4 so go with the whole box for 6. We don’t salt much but decided the pasta water needed salt to make the noodles tastier. I think I’d try putting the cheese onto the individual bowl of noodles rather than in the pot. Seems like a lot of cheese gets lost and stuck in there.

    Made this for our Christmas dinner. Big hit with the whole family! Even my 12 and 7 year old. I always look forward to trying out a new recipe from HBH!

  10. Left out the celery and wine and it was still amazing! A perfect Sunday soup on a dreary day, will be making it throughout the winter! Next time will probably make a loaf of beer bread to go along with it. I thought starting the noodles after the soup was cooking allowed a great amount of time for all the spices to simmer together, even the picky eater had seconds.

    This was really good. I added 2 extra cups of broth. Then added cream, cheeses and pasta and just cooked it for an additional 10 minutes to cook the noodles. Would just add the cream/milk and noodles next time then add in the cheese at the end. Definitely took. Longer than 45 minutes to make but probably could reduce that time if prepped the veggies earlier.

  12. This dish is delicious. Amazing flavors. My family loves it. I wish it was more soup like. What would you use to thin it out to make more like a soup?
