Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use ground beef instead of ground pork?
Yes, you can substitute ground beef for ground pork if you prefer.
Ground turkey or chicken can also be used for a leaner option.
Can I make this soup in advance and reheat it later?
Absolutely! Lasagna Soup reheats well.
Simply store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave until hot.
Can I use pre-cooked lasagna noodles?
Yes, you can use pre-cooked or no-boil lasagna noodles to save time.
Just add them to the soup during the last 5-7 minutes of simmering, or according to the package instructions.
How can I adjust the spiciness of the soup?
You can control the level of spiciness by adjusting the amount of crushed red pepper flakes you add.
If you prefer a milder soup, reduce or omit the red pepper flakes.
For extra heat, add more to your taste.
What can I serve with Lasagna Soup besides sourdough bread crisps?
While sourdough bread crisps are a great choice, you can also serve this soup with garlic bread, a simple green salad, or even a side of steamed vegetables for a balanced meal.
Is there a way to make this soup vegetarian or vegan?
To make this soup vegetarian, you can use plant-based ground meat or crumbles instead of pork, and ensure your broth, cheeses, and noodles are vegetarian.
For a vegan version, use vegan cheeses, vegetable broth, and eggless pasta, and skip the meat altogether.
Can I use fresh lasagna sheets instead of broken lasagna noodles?
Yes, you can use fresh lasagna sheets instead of broken noodles.
Just cut the fresh sheets into bite-sized pieces and add them to the soup.
Fresh pasta will cook quickly, so adjust the cooking time accordingly.
What can I do if I don’t have Italian seasoning on hand?
If you don’t have Italian seasoning, you can make your own blend by combining dried basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary in equal parts.
You can also use dried basil and oregano as a simple substitute.
Can I freeze Lasagna Soup for later?
While it’s possible to freeze Lasagna Soup, the texture of the pasta may change slightly upon thawing and reheating.
If you decide to freeze it, allow the soup to cool completely, then store it in airtight containers or freezer bags.
It can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating on the stovetop or in the microwave.
