Lasagna is a recipe that is as old as time in one way or another. It originated in Italy and is made with freshly made pasta, hand-picked tomato, fresh cheese, and freshly picked herbs for a robust and sweet flavor that can’t be beaten. If you have ever made lasagna or tomato sauce from scratch; you know how time-consuming it can truly be. The sauce and pasta will be better than everything you can buy from the store, but your kitchen will be destroyed. Sauce all over the place, bowls, measuring utensils galore. What if we told you that you could have the delicious flavor of homemade lasagna wrapped into one dish and made in one pot?
Introducing our One-Pot Lasagna Soup is a hearty and comforting meal. The lasagna noodles are cooked in the soup and then baked with cheese and tomato sauce. With this recipe, you can have lasagna without the fuss of making a tray of lasagna noodles.
This One-Pot Lasagna Soup recipe is made in one pot, which makes it easier to clean up afterward. Using a large dutch oven, you can combine all the ingredients into one place without tearing apart your kitchen and trying to find the right size pan recommended by a certain recipe that you haven’t seen in over six months.
We used two different types of meat to give you more depth in your sauce and flavor ground beef and spicy sausage. Include your herbs, cheese, balsamic vinegarette, and every other ingredient and your family will be lining up for seconds.
What sides go with this soup?
