You have 3 ways and options to prepare this recipe. You can prepare it on the stove, in a slow cooker or an Instant Pot pressure cooker. This dish is simple so stovetop is my favorite method.

🥩What Type of Meat to Use

I use organic, grass-finished beef. You can also use ground turkey, ground sausage, ground chicken, or whatever you like.

🍝What Type of Pasta to Use

I use standard lasagna, not oven-ready. Oven ready isn’t necessary for this recipe. You can use any type of pasta you wish. If you want to prepare this recipe in the Instant Pot, cook the 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.

How to Store Leftovers

Leftovers can be stored tightly covered and sealed and stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to Reheat

This is a great soup for leftovers and reheating. I recommend storing the cooked noodles separate from the soup if you know you want this dish for meal prep and if you want to avoid soggy noodles. This dish can be reheated in the microwave or on the stove.

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. Defrost overnight in the fridge.

Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I’m not a fan of lasagna for whatever reason, but this made my taste buds happy and a great alternative to the traditional oven recipe.
