How to make One Pot Lasagna Soup
Step 1: Place a large pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Step 2: Add in the beef and onion. Cook until the beef turns brown while stirring from time to time.
Step 3: Add in the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for another 30 seconds. Drain the excess grease.
Step 4: Add in 6 cups of chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, Prego sauce, tomato paste, sugar, balsamic vinegar, spices, and lasagna noodles. Stir and allow the mixture to boil.
Step 5: Turn the heat down to low and simmer until the lasagna noodles are al dente’. Cook and stir for 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 6: Remove the bay leaf and add in the heavy cream and stir. Pour about 2 to 4 cups of the chicken broth and stir until you achieve your preferred consistency.
Step 7: Sprinkle a lot of cheese on top.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
1. I use lasagna noodles because it gives a nicer texture compared to pasta noodles.
2. If you do not want a thick soup, do not use heavy cream. Instead, try adding cornstarch.
