Soup season is around the corner and I can already tell this vegetable lasagna soup is going to be in our regular rotation! It’s super easy to make and this one is a crowd-pleaser! The Vero Gusto® sauce by Barilla® adds delicious flavor to the base of the soup, and plenty of vegetables, lasagna noodles, and cheese turn this soup into a hearty meal! By cooking the noodles in the sauce, they soak up even more flavor!

If you haven’t tried the Vero Gusto® by Barilla® sauce, you have to pick some up! It’s made in Parma, Italy and it doesn’t contain anything artificial or any added sugar. It’s made with a flavorful soffrito base comprised of onion, garlic, and finely chopped carrot, with 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It tastes just like homemade sauce but without all the work!

How to Make Lasagna Soup

Begin by sauteing the carrots and onion in a little bit of olive oil until softened.

Add the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant.

Break the noodles into smaller pieces, but be careful! The noodle pieces can go flying! I recommend you slide the end of a noodle under your palm, then lift your wrist upward to crack the pieces of pasta into your hand. This was the least messy strategy I tried!

Add the broth, Vero Gusto® pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, lasagna noodles, and zucchini and simmer until the noodles are al dente. 

While the soup is cooking, combine the ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. 

Once the noodles are finished, divide into servings and add a dollop of the cheese mixture to each bowl!

Substitution Ideas

  • If you want to make this recipe vegan, use vegan ricotta and vegan mozzarella cheese. You can skip the Parmesan, just add an extra pinch of salt, if necessary.
  • If you want to make this with extra veggies, add a handful of spinach to the pot as you stir in the ricotta cheese. It will cook quickly in the hot soup.
  • For a little heat, add a pinch of red pepper flake on top of each bowl.

How to Store Leftovers

If you’re making this recipe in advance, I recommend cooking the noodles separately and stirring them into each portion when ready to serve. This helps prevent the noodles from getting soggy. This isn’t necessary if you’re planning to eat most of it when you first cook it, but if you like to meal prep for the week, you may want to consider that option!
