Lazy One Pot Lasagna Soup on Stove

Easy one pot lasagna soup on the stove top is a cheap dinner with ground beef or sausage. No boil lazy lasagna soup with noodles is cooked in spaghetti sauce for a cheesy meal that is a family favorite.

Lazy Lasagna Soup

Lasagna soup with ground beef is so much easier to make than the layered version. NO boil noodles, you just break them up, throw them into the sauce and they’ll get tender boiled in the spaghetti sauce. With ricotta and mozzarella cheese in every bite, you get the same flavors with less work. (affiliate links present)

You could make this same thing in the slow cooker. You’d just follow our No Boil Crockpot Lasagna recipe but break the pasta into smaller pieces and add an extra cup of sauce for there to be more liquid at the end. You could easily adjust that at the end with broth too until you got enough soupiness for your liking.

Same thing goes for our Pressure Cooker Lasagna Casserole, you’d just thin that out at the end too. For that one I used medium shells instead of the traditional long and flat versions. You could easily do the same thing with this and it would actually take a bit less time to get to tender.

Now you could make this as a Frozen Ravioli Recipe if you wanted filled noodles instead of flat and floppy in there. Jarred spaghetti sauce could be used with broth to thin it out or use our directions below to make that homemade. It is really so easy and better from scratch if you want to spend another 10 minutes or so to make it.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 4 c beef broth
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 8 oz. lasagna noodles broken, or use medium shells
  • 1 c mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 c parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 c ricotta cheese
  • salt and pepper to tast

The only difference between this and Lazy Lasagna Casserole is that there is less liquid or sauce used. I mean both are favorites and you should make all during meal planing to see which is your family’s favorite dish to make over and over again.

You don’t even need to know How to Make Lasagna Step by Step to make this, that is the whole point. Literally no prep, boiling or layering required for this one. That is why they call it lazy y’all.

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon.
  • If using sausage, cook until no longer pink.
  • Add the chopped onion and garlic to the pot, cooking until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour in the crushed tomatoes, beef or vegetable broth, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, dried basil, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer. Break the lasagna noodles into smaller pieces and add them to the pot. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the noodles are cooked, remove the pot from heat.
  • Stir in the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese until melted and well combined.
  • Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with ricotta cheese, basil, or parsley if desired. Serve hot.

I mean you could make a No Noodle Lasagna out of this but my kids would be like huh? if I did that. Lower carb options would be to integrate spaghetti squash pasta or zoodles instead. If you did that they only take a fraction of the time and you don’t want those to get mushy so stay close.

I have mentioned a few tweaks you can make to this along the way but let’s do a rundown shall we? As far as meat goes you could use anything ground, I mean even leftover steak would work. BUT traditionally you’d use beef but ground turkey or chicken would be lower in fat for sure.

  1. 2 jars of marinara sauce would substitute all of the ingredients necessary to make it fresh.
  2. Dried herbs work but aren’t as great as fresh basil of course.
  3. Regular lasagna noodles were used here and broken into large bite size pieces, any shape works though. The smaller they are the faster they will get tender of course.
  4. Use water, beef, vegetable or chicken broth to thin out the sauce to your liking.
  5. You can stir cheeses in there but I would recommend also adding shred and a dollop of ricotta to the top when serving it with your Little Caesars Cheese Bread as well.
  6. There is NO need to boil noodles beforehand like you do traditional lasagna but I suppose you could if you didn’t want them cooking in the sauce. Cuts down on meal prepping though if you do as stated below.

If you have leftovers you can freeze lasagna soup after it has cooled down, takes about 30 minutes to do so. Store in a sealed container in the fridge up to 3 days. I reheat in the microwave for 1 minute with a bit more cheese on the top so that melts. Serve with Toaster Oven Garlic Bread  for the ultimate comfort food again on cold days.

Boiling Noodles in Spaghetti Sauce

You don’t have to use any meat at all either if you want it to be vegetarian. There are meat alternatives out there too that can mimic the same outcome and add protein to this meal. For dairy free I have used Daiya cheeses that taste surprisingly similar to normal ones, they just don’t melt quite as well.

Can you put uncooked noodles in spaghetti sauce?

Yes!! We show you how to do just that to make our easy lasagna soup recipe. You can do the same thing when cooking spaghetti noodles in spaghetti sauce for dinner. It is actually better than plain water as the pasta soaks up the flavors while they get tender and taste better.

Does boiling spaghetti sauce make it thicker?

This can help thicken it to some extent, but it may not be the most effective method. The primary purpose of boiling spaghetti sauce is to cook and blend the flavors of the ingredients.
As the sauce simmers some of the liquid evaporates, which can naturally make the sauce thicker.
