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!

  • 1. Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven over high heat. Add the onion, celery, and red pepper, and cook until the veggies are softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook 1 minute.
    2. Add the meat and sausage. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up the meat as it cooks, until browned all over, 10 minutes. Add the tomato paste, basil, oregano, thyme, and chili flakes and cook 5 minutes, then pour in the wine. Add the crushed tomatoes and broth. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 10-20 minutes until thickened slightly.
    3. Stir in the milk and cook until warmed through, 10 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, boil the noodles until al dente. Drain and add back to the pot with the cheeses. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve topped with parmesan and fresh herbs. Enjoy!

    Another hit in my house! The perfect cold and rainy (or snowy) day comfort food. Super quick to throw together and satisfies my Italian cravings without too much pasta. I made enough to throw in the freezer (I left out the noodles) and it was just as good the first time we had it!

    1. Hey Kari,

      1. This s soooooo good. I made a few weeks ago and cut the recipe in half and was really wishing I’d had left overs. I made the full batch again today and now I have some for the freezer and lunch this week.

        1. Hi Leslie,
          Fantastic!! I love to hear that the recipe was enjoyed, thanks for giving it a try. Have the best week:)) xT

  4. I’ve made this once before and it was absolutely delicious! The whole family loved it. I’m going to make it again but wondering if I can add spinach in and where in the process I should do that?

    1. Hey Faith,
      Awesome!! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! I would just add the spinach at the end, the warm soup will wilt the spinach into the broth. xx

    Delicious and so easy. I may never make traditional lasagna again. I added a dollop of ricotta to each bowl before serving to amp up the creaminess. Truly scrumptious!

    So delicious and filling! It was hard to stop eating it! I used mild sausage since my 5 and 3 year old aren’t too into spicy yet. Will definitely make again.

    Excellent, full of flavors, can add more or less red pepper flakes to taste. Believe it or not, freezes well. Perfect for cold , damp nights

    1. Hey there,

    I made this last night – soooo delicious! The prep came together rather quickly and the cooking time was short too. I think next time I will cook the lasagna noodles and then cut them into smaller pieces – I had barefoot piercing shards of uncooked noodles on the floor – they fly! I just read other reviews – diced carrots sound like a great addition to up the veggie factor and trying a different pasta – duh! I always make a recipe the way it’s written first time – farfalle (my fave) would work great! A definite make again recipe – thank you Tieghan!
