Soups are my THING…OK?! I love to turn all of my favorite dishes into a hearty soup. What is lasagna soup? Well, this one is also a spin on traditional lasagna. It’s made with a cream sauce, very similar to my Seafood Lasagna, instead of marinara.

What Kind of Pasta to Use

I use standard lasagna, not oven ready. Oven ready will cook too fast than needed for this recipe. You can use any type of pasta you wish. In general, you want to cook pasta in the Instant Pot for half of the time noted on the package and subtract one additional minute. Pay close attention to this, especially, if you are using whole wheat pasta.

What Kind of Chicken to Use

I like to use chicken breasts, but you can use any type of chicken you like. You can use cut up chicken thighs or legs and the cook time will remain the same. Be sure to brown the chicken first.

You can also buy a rotisserie chicken from the store and cut it up to use in the soup to save time. You won’t need to pressure cook the ingredients. Cook the soup on medium-high until warm.

How to Make Lasagna Soup

  1. Add olive oil, sliced chicken, 1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste to a pot.
  2. Cook for the chicken for 3-4 minutes until browned and no longer pink. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  3. Drizzle an additional teaspoon of olive oil in the pot. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the veggies are soft and the onions are fragrant.
  4. Add in the garlic and stir.
  5. Add the chicken broth to pot, along with the cooked chicken. Top with the broken lasagna noodles.
  6. Pressure cook or cook on stove top.
  7. Add in milk, heavy cream, shredded cheese, cream cheese, dry white wine, and spinach. Stir until the cheese has melted.
  8. Combine flour and water in a separate bowl. Stir and add it to the pot. Stir the soup to thicken.

Can You Cook the Pasta in with the Soup?

Yes, if you use an Instant Pot.

How to Thicken the Soup

I create a slurry using all-purpose flour and water (in equal parts). Combine the two and pour the slurry into the cooked soup and stir. You can also substitute cornstarch.

If you are interested in a low carb thickener, you can use xanthan gum. Take 1/2 a teaspoon and add it to a small bowl with a few tablespoons of cooked soup. Stir until it thickens and add it back to the pot.

How Long Will it Last in the Fridge

The soup will last 3-4 days stored tightly sealed in the fridge.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze this soup. I like to use these freezer molds from Amazon. It allows you to freeze the soup in individual portions. Because this is a creamy soup with dairy, when you defrost and reheat the soup, you will notice separation.

Notes

  • I use standard lasagna, not oven ready. Oven ready will cook too fast than needed for this recipe.
  • You can use any type of pasta you wish. In general, you want to cook pasta in the Instant Pot for half of the time noted on the package and subtract one additional minute. Pay close attention to this, especially, if you are using whole wheat pasta.
  • The soup is meant to be thick and creamy. You can add more or use less broth to adjust the soup to meet your desired consistency.
  • I like to use chicken breasts, but you can use any type of chicken you like. You can use cut up chicken thighs or legs and the cook time will remain the same. Be sure to brown the chicken first.
  • You can also buy a rotisserie chicken from the store and cut it up to use in the soup to save time. You won’t need to pressure cook the ingredients. Cook the soup on medium-high until warm.
  • You can lower the fat in the recipe by using fat free cream cheese if you wish, along with coconut milk to substitute for the whipping cream.
  • You can substitute cornstarch for all-purpose flour.
  • If you are interested in a low carb thickener, you can use xanthan gum. Take 1/2 a teaspoon and add it to a small bowl with a few tablespoons of cooked soup. Stir until it thickens and add it back to the pot.

Truly a delicious triumph! With 3 kids it’s hard to know if these veggie rich soups will be a good option and this one did not disappoint! The kids all tore it up, even the picky toddler was able to get down with the broth.

I did pre-cook my chicken breasts ahead of time and still made the soup in the IP. I added the chicken after the noodles cooked before the milk and cheese which was plenty of time for the chicken to heat up to soup temperature without the chicken getting over cooked. Will probably break up the lasagna a bit more next time to save the kids the stress of cutting up long noodles.

So tasty!!
