Lasagna Soup

I made this soup after seeing it on Pinterest. Like most of my recipes, I looked around at several recipes to get the gist of what's in it. Then I came up with my own version. This soup is gluten free, however you can use whichever type of pasta you please. I happen to only have quinoa pasta in my house, so that's what I used. This soup is like a little bowl of heaven, if you love lasagna. Usually lasagna is too tomato-y for me (I'm not a huge fan of red sauce) so this soup was perfect. I threw in some fresh spinach for color and added nutrients, and with some crusty bread, this soup will not disappoint.


1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 box of chicken broth
1 cup quinoa pasta shells
1 cup of water
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups raw spinach
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
olive oil

chopped basil (for garnish)
ricotta (for garnish)
shredded mozzarella (for garnish)
parmesan cheese (again, garnish)

In a pot cook ground turkey with garlic, salt, and pepper, and about a tablespoon of olive oil. Once turkey is cooked, add tomato paste and remaining seasonings, then carefully add 1 cup of water and half of the box of chicken broth. Add in pasta and allow to gently boil, 6-10 minutes, stirring ever so often. Once pasta is al dente, throw in can of tomatoes, remaining chicken broth and spinach. Bring heat up just enough for the spinach to wilt. Ladle soup into bowls with ricotta (important if you really want it to taste like lasagna), mozzarella, and parmesan.


  1. This looks delicious! I've never had lasagna soup! I will def be making this sometime soon!

  2. Yum! It's sunny but cold up here still so this seems like the perfect weeknight dish to cuddle up on the couch with!
