Easy Lasagna Soup

These few simple ingredients are all you need to make this quick, easy, delicious, hearty, satisfying, Italian style, soup! Did I forget any descriptive words?

If you use store bought, pre-cooked meatballs and jarred sauce...or leftover meatballs and sauce, this soup can be done in about 20 minutes! I used 'oven ready' lasagna noodles, so I didn't need to pre-cook them. You can find them in the pasta isle. I love those noodles! I always use them when I make lasagna! This soup idea is a great way to get your lasagna fix quickly! And it uses much less lasagna ingredients than if you were making a regular lasagna! So, it's a great way to save time and money, but still get all those flavors you love from lasagna!

Easy Lasagna Soup

INGREDIENTS:
24 ounces prepare pasta sauce
1/2 lb. meatballs, cooked and diced
2 cans (14.5 oz. ea.) low sodium chicken broth
9 sheets 'oven ready' lasagna noodles, broken in pieces
1/4 cup ricotta cheese, plus more for topping
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley, optional for garnish

DIRECTIONS:
In a large soup pot bring the pasta sauce to a simmer. Then stir in the cooked, diced meatballs and chicken broth. Bring to a low boil and add in the broken lasagna noodles. Stir and let cook for 5 minutes or until noodles are tender. Then add the 1/4 cup ricotta and 1/3 cup grated parmesan. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Serve warm with an extra dollop of ricotta on top and a sprinkle of mozzarella and optional fresh chopped parsley.
Serves 8

    1. This cooks up so quickly using the 'oven ready' lasagna noodles that you wouldn't need the crockpot. But I guess if you use the lowest setting and cook it for less than an hour, it would work just as well as on the stove top. If you try it please let me know! Thank you =D
