making 30-minute Turkey Lasagna Soup

Today feels like an ordinary day … you know, the to-do list—laundry, cooking, dishes, cleaning, and my daily work on my blog. And then there’s dinner…

This time of year, I love a good soup recipe (grab some of my favorite soup recipes at the bottom of this post).

Blogging and creating a recipe site is a fun job, but it’s also hard work. In 2016 I started my blog, and then in 2011 I got  more serious about posting daily recipes for my wonderful readers.

Important Tip for BEST Lasagna Soup

What I love about this recipe is that you don’t spend hours in front of the stove, and it’s ready in 30 minutes!

The first step is important for this recipe. Sauting the onions and garlic, and turkey meat first is key. It just adds so much flavor.

  1. Heat a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat; add the oil and cook the onion, adding the ground turkey and cooking until browned.
  2. Add the crushed garlic and cook some more.
  3. Put in the cilantro, broth, water, marinara sauce, black beans, and fresh black pepper and bring to a boil.
  4. Break the lasagna pieces into small pieces and add to the pot; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is tender.
  5. In a bowl, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, sharp white cheese and cilantro, and mix.
  6. Top each serving with ricotta cheese mixture, fresh-cracked pepper and chopped cilantro on top.

So get a pot of soup simmering on the stove. Make the topping to serve on top of the soup right before it’s time to eat.

The topping is a ricotta cheese mixed with two of my favorites cheeses, plus cilantro.

What to serve with Lasagna Soup?

A nice easy salad is an obvious choice for this soup. Another good option would be to bulk up the soup with additional ingredients like roasted bell peppers, corn, or a different type of beans.  

Garlic bread or garlic knots (Gina’s recipe is fantastic!) would also be delicious!

Other lasagna soup TIPS:

How to freeze lasagna soup? Make ahead without the cheese, and add just before serving, so it melts and is nice and fresh. Of course you would not make the topping ahead or freeze it. This would need to be made fresh the day of or a few days before serving the soup.

Can you make this in the crock pot? Yes, brown the turkey first, add the ingredients (except the cheeses) into the crock pot and cook on low for about 2 hours. Test to make sure the pasta is cooked through, and then serve with cheese topping.

This recipe makes about 8 cups.

Breaking bread together doesn’t always mean it has to be shared in your home. You can bring a pot of soup to bless another family! And sometimes it is inspiring to put a new twist to the way that we serve a meal by including an attractive dinner board! :)
