Warm & Hearty Lasagna Soup

Lasagna Soup Leftovers

So, this past week, a cool front came through and I must say, it was WONDERFUL!  Here in deep South Texas, it’s November and yet our temps are still in the 80’s/90’s.  Weird, I know!  To celebrate the cooler temps, I made this Hearty Lasagna Soup and as a result, it was just what we needed!

I have a love/hate relationship with Lasagna.  I utterly love the dish and can lick my plate clean if no one’s around but because of all the work that’s involved in preparing it, I also hate it.  Well, hate is a strong word, it’s probably more of a “It’s too much work, I don’t want to make it unless someone’s going to help me do it AND clean up” kinda feeling.

I’m thinking I need to clone myself, that way, I can play Candy Crush while mini clone me makes it.  Sounds *almost* possible, right!?  No, I guess not really but until it is, I will easily volunteer to make this Lasagna Soup at moment’s notice!

This recipe can be easily customized to suit your taste buds.  It is fantastic with this Italian Sausage but if that’s not what you have on hand (or like), use ground beef or turkey.  I also added Cayenne Pepper to give it a little kick but it can be 86’d or just adjust the quantity to suit your liking.  In my opinion, the Italian Sausage is the one I like most of all but, that’s just me.

Lasagna Soup

Cooler, and wetter, days are imminent therefore, take a look at some of my other favorite soups that are especially relevant warmer-uppers this upcoming season.  My Pozole and Pasta Fagioli recipes are a couple of all-time favorite’s so be sure to take a look.

With soups like these, leftovers are inevitable which is why soup is so great!  They store pretty well and the flavors become BFF’s after hanging out in the fridge overnight.  In a recent trip to our local Sam’s Club, we found these storage containers and I immediately fell in love!

For one thing, they’re glass which means they won’t warp or get that orange-y colored film that always bubbles up in the microwave…Yuk-a-roni!! This set comes with 6 square and 6 rectangle containers with corresponding matching airtight and leak-proof lids!

* Safe to use in freezer, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and oven  * Made of tempered, shatter-resistant glass  * BPA free * Nesting Containers

Plus, because they are NESTING containers, they have quickly become my favorite ones to use!  Snap the lid on each container then nest them to save space!  No more fussing with the lids or trying to find them…they can all be stacked nice and neat.

Then when you’re ready to have some more of this delicious Lasagna Soup, simply grab the container from the fridge, remove lid and pop in the microwave!  No more grabbing a container only to find leftover corn from last week that somehow, managed to get shoved to the back of the fridge and forgotten.  These containers are clear, making it’s contents easily identifiable, which is a win in this house!

Now, here’s the recipe you’re going to want to make tonight!

    Your recipes are sooo yummy! This is one I might try sometime in the future! 🙂 I tried making the seasoned fries one and they were addictive (because they were so yummy). Your pics of the food are also mouth-watering! 🙂

    • Cori says:

      Aww, thank you Patricia 😉 I agree, those seasoned fries are totally addictive and if I could, I’d make them as a stand alone meal for myself, lol. I appreciate your sweet words, totally made my day 😉

  2. I love lasagna and soup, so I will totally have to try this! I am so happy for Fall and this cool weather, because it is perfect for soup and some nice crusty bread 🙂 Mmmmmmm!

    • Cori says:

      Yes, crusty bread to soak up all that goodness is *almost* mandatory, lol. Soups like these are one of the reasons why Fall is my favorite season!! 😉

  3. Priya says:

    I’ve never heard of lasagna soup but maybe I can make the vegetarian version of it.

  4. Suanlian Tangpua says:

    It looks Yummy!! can I use sunflower oil/coconut oil instead of Olive Oil?

    • Cori says:

      Definitely, of course! Either would work just keep in mind that the coconut oil might give it a mild “coconut” taste. For that reason, I’d probably choose sunflower over coconut unless you’re okay with it 😉

  5. lucicoo says:

    This looks really delicious. I live in Louisiana and it still in the 80’s which make me sad.

    • Cori says:

      Thank you, Luci. I completely understand…I live in deep South Texas and we’ve been in 80/90 degree weather all week. We get teased with “cool” weather occasionally, which is when I take advantage and make soups like this one 😉

  6. I am making this the second that the first snowflake falls this winter! I love lasagna and there’s nothing better than soup on a cold night.

  11. Lasagna soup is such an interesting idea. I had a friend bring a taco soup to a football Sunday one year, and I was amazed how much taco flavor he was able to put into that soup. If this is anywhere close to that, I might have to try to make this over the weekend.

    • Cori says:

      Oooh I’ve made Taco Chili before and that was so good, I can imagine it’d be great as a soup also. I hope you do get to try it out. Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping in today 😉 (and for the inspiration, lol)

    • Cori says:

      I can’t either, Jessica! Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the cooler temps but even more so, the soups that come with it! I hope y’all try it 🙂

  29. This sounds so good and perfect for fall! I love lasagna too, but it can definitely be time consuming to make.

    • Cori says:

      It’s one of the reasons I don’t make it more often. This soup version is SO much quicker and tastes just as great! Thanks for stopping in 😉
