Sunday evening was one of those nights were I had no idea what we were having for dinner. I had spent the afternoon at a friends baby shower, which was way too much fun. I came home and had no motivation to cook. I set out looking for a soup recipe but wasn’t having any luck. You see, my husband isn’t really a soup fan, so it has to be something hearty with meat. lasagna-soup-3 After searching Pinterest high and low, I decided to just start cooking. My original thought was some sort of chicken barley soup. Then I thought maybe a tomatoey soup with grilled cheese croutons. But I finally landed on a lasagna soup. I am so glad I did. It was divine. The hubby even like it. A lot! YAY! lasagna-soup-2 This soup is hearty, filled with lots of veggies and meat. It’s a one pot stop and delicious. I love that it has all those lasagna flavors – basil, oregano, garlic, and parsley. It’s creamy, dreamy, and cheesy. My small appetite Jobie ate two bowls of it. This is defiantly a recipe I want to remember. lasagna-soup-4 My friend Keri has a vegetarian lasagna soup that I have been dying to try but I don’t have a food processor. It is on my list of recipes to try once I get a food processor. And yes, I know, someone who cooks as much as I do should own a food processor. Someday. For now, I will stick with this yummy recipe.

I love it. It makes me laugh so hard. She just recently discovered her nose. It’s a new favorite pastime. Anyway, enjoy the yummy soup and think of this picture while you’re making it – because it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1/2lb hamburger meat
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 oz of your favorite pasta*
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

optional garnishes:

  • fresh chopped parsley
  • extra ricotta cheese
  • extra parmesen cheese

Directions

Add your carrots, onions, and hamburger meat to a large pot. Cook until the veggies are tender and your meat is browned. Then add your garlic and cook for another minute or two. Add in your jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce and your chicken stock along with all the spices - oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Bring that to a boil. Add in your pasta and cook until your pasta is done. I had to keep stirring mine to keep the noodles from sticking to the bottom. You can feel it out and see if you need to do that or not. Once your pasta is cooked through, remove from heat and add in your ricotta and parmesan cheese.

Serve with some fresh parsley, ricotta cheese, and parmesan. This would be great with some yummy garlic bread dipped in it. I just finished dinner and I am already wanting more. MMM MMM good!

    This DOES look good! Aaron is not a big soup fan either, but I think I will try this. Did you actually have the ricotta and parmesan cheese on hand, or did you use something different??

      I did have both on hand. You don’t need either cheese. You could try a little mozzarella sprinkled on top, but I don’t recommend stirring it in because it’s a very stringy and gloppy cheese when melted. But on top would be great. Hope Aaron loves it too ;)
