Ingredients and Variations

MEAT: Seasoned ground beef can be replaced with ground turkey, chicken, or Italian sausage, or omit the meat altogether and use black beans for a vegetarian version of lasagna soup.

PASTA: Lasagna noodles are simply broken into small pieces for this recipe so smaller, bite-sized pastas like penne, bowtie, or even orzo can work. For keto and gluten-free lasagna soup, replace the pasta altogether with zucchini noodles (zoodles).

BROTH: Chicken broth and crushed tomatoes and a splash of balsamic vinegar provide a savory balance and texture to the soup.

EXTRAS: Instant pot lasagna soup is a great way to use up bits of leftover veggies from the refrigerator, or you can add spinach, kale, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, or toss in a bag of your favorite frozen vegetable medley if you don’t have time to prep!
