This Vegetarian Lasagna Soup combines all the rich, creamy texture of lasagna with the warming comfort of a hearty bowl of soup. It’s also quick and easy to get on the dinner table, AND it all comes together in one pot! This could very well be the most perfect winter meal.
If you have a few extra minutes, grate your own parmesan. Pre-grated cheeses contain preservatives designed to keep them from clumping together in their packages. Those same preservatives, however, mean the cheese doesn’t melt together as smoothly as you’ll want it to. For the best texture, get a wedge of parmesan and grate it at home!
Can’t find crushed tomatoes? No problem. You can use tomato puree, canned tomato sauce, or jarred spaghetti sauce instead – the soup will just have a smoother consistency. Alternately, you can get a can of whole, peeled tomatoes and crush them yourself for a more chunky tomato texture in your soup!
You can use whatever kind of pasta you have on hand for this creamy vegetarian lasagna soup. I like to use bowties (or farfalle) because they slightly resemble the edge of a classic lasagna noodle, but penne, rotini, rigatoni, or even macaroni would work well in this recipe!
Any sturdy green will work. You can easily swap out the kale for another sturdy green like baby spinach. I sometimes like to use Swiss chard, mustard greens, or collard greens. I have even used arugula in a pinch, which added a little bit of a peppery flavor! Use whatever you’ve got in the fridge! And because it’s going to wilt anyway, you can use greens that are slightly past their prime!
