Ingredients for White Lasagna Soup Recipe

Butter: I prefer to use unsalted butter, but if you’re using salted one, reduce the amount of salt  in the recipe.

Onion and garlic: Mince the garlic and chop the onion. These aromatics are used to add the texture and flavor in soup.

Seasonings: Use Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper and crushed red chili flakes. And if you love something more spicy, you can add more chili flakes or use a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Chicken breasts: Uncooked chicken breasts will go directly to the soup. But you can also use leftover chicken, shred and stir it in the last 5 minutes of cooking.

Chicken broth: I prefer to use low-sodium chicken broth, but you can use regular one, and to make the soup vegetarian, you can go with vegetable broth too.

Sun-dried tomatoes: I like to add a touch of sun-dried tomatoes in soup, however, it is completely optional, and you can skip it.

Pasta: You can use traditional lasagna noodles, or any of your favorite pasta in small shapes. If using lasagna noodles, break it into small pieces.

Cream and cornstarch: A blend of cream with cornstarch makes a slurry in soup, helps create a rich and creamy texture of soup.

Spinach: I’m using fresh baby spinach. But you can use the regular one too. And if you’re using frozen spinach, make sure to thaw and squeeze it out completely before adding in the soup.

How to Make White Lasagna Soup on Stove Top?

Step 1

Here I’m making the soup over stove top. Take a skillet or soup pot and heat the butter over medium to low flame until it melts.

Then add chopped onion and minced garlic and cook it for 2,3 minutes, or until the onion change its color.

Then add the aromatics like Italian seasonings, salt, black pepper, and chili flakes. If you want more spiciness, you can add more chili flakes. Cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 2

Now add chicken broth. I’m using low-sodium chicken broth, but you can also use the regular one.

And if you are making a vegetarian version of soup, simply replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth.

Add raw chicken breasts directly to the chicken broth, and then add sun-dried tomatoes. Now cook it until the chicken turns soft.

Cover the pot and cook it for at least 20 to 25 minutes on low flame.

Step 3

Meanwhile cook the lasagna noodles or small pasta, whatever you’re using. For this soup, I’m using pasta. Sometime, I prefer to cook the pasta in broth, and for this, just add the pasta and increase a 1/2 cup of broth and cook it after the chicken has been cooked and shredded on slow flame for an additional 15 minutes or until the pasta gets softened.

But now, I cook the pasta separately. Check the chicken breast pieces and if it has done, remove them from broth and shred using forks.

Add the shredded chicken to the cooked broth again.

Step 4

Now take fresh cream, and mix cornstarch. This will help making a creamy slurry in the soup.

If you want less fat, you can replace fresh cream with half-and-half. But the more you add the fat in soup, more you will get the creamy texture of soup.

Add this roux in the soup, and add cooked pasta. Give it a good mix to mix everything well. Now add spinach. If you are using baby spinach, you can add spinach leaves directly.

Pro Tips for Lasagna Soup

If you have leftover chicken, or turkey, you can use it instead of raw chicken breasts. Just shred the meat and add it in last 10 minutes of cooking.

If the soup is too thickened, you can add some water or more broth to make the consistency according to your needs.

If you want more thickness, simply add some more slurry of cream and cornstarch, or you can add some softened cream cheese if available.

If you’re using frozen spinach, make sure to thaw and squeeze it out completely before adding in the soup.

Before storing the leftover soup, don’t forget to remove the noodles from broth, it will help to prevent the noodles from getting soggy.

Recipe Swaps

  • Add more veggies: To boost the nutrition of this soup, you can add more of your favorite veggies like chopped celery, carrots, mushrooms, red pepper, zucchini, or broccoli.
  • Make it gluten-free: To make the soup gluten free, replace the regular noodles with gluten-free noodles. Make sure to use other ingredients of the recipe gluten-free. 
  • Make it vegetarian: You can easily make a vegetarian version of this soup by replacing the chicken with your favorite veggies. For this, also use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. 
  • Cream or half-and-half: As cream is added to enhance the creamy texture of soup, but if you’re not using it, you can replace it with half-and-half. But keep in mind that, the more fat you use in soup, the more creamy the texture of soup you’ll get.

What to Serve with?

Once the pasta is done, its best to serve the soup right away! I love to serve it with salad like Pasta House Salad or with roasted vegetables.

Its also best to serve the soup with a side of homemade bread like garlic bread or breadsticks.

How to Store the leftovers?

If you plan to enjoy leftover soup, be sure to remove the pasta from the soup before storing it in the refrigerator. This will help prevent the pasta from soaking up all the broth. When reheating, simply add the pasta back in and enjoy.

Leftover white lasagna soup can last in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Try to consume the soup within these days to enjoy the best and fresh flavor of soup.

How to reheat the soup?

When you are ready to enjoy the soup, simply remove it from refrigerator, reheat it on stove top or using oven, during this, add the pasta again. Top it with your favorites and enjoy with your favorite sides, like garlic bread or pasta house salad.

Can you freeze white lasagna soup?

If you are making a large batch of soup to freeze and enjoy it for later, be sure to freeze it before adding pasta and cream.

To freeze the soup, make the soup until the chicken is cooked. Then remove the chicken breasts from the broth, shred and add it back to the broth with spinach.

Now instead of adding cream and cornstarch slurry, and pasta, remove the soup from the stovetop and let it cool at room temperature.

Store the soup in an airtight container. You can store it for 2 to 3 months in the freezer. When ready to enjoy it again, thaw the soup in the refrigerator overnight.

Then warm the soup over stove top, then add cream and cornstarch slurry and freshly cooked pasta, and enjoy.

What type of pasta should you use for lasagna soup?

You can use any short pasta for the soup. I am using Mafalda Corta noodles which look like mini lasagna noodles.

But you can use any of your favorite or easily available pasta shapes like fusilli, rotini, bow-tie or regular lasagna noodles is also best choice for this white lasagna soup.

If using lasagna noodles, simply break them into small bite size pieces and then cook according to recipe.

How do you thicken lasagna soup?

If the soup isn’t thickened after adding the cream and cornstarch slurry, you can add more slurry, or simmer it longer to evaporate more liquid.

Softened cream cheese can also be a good option, as it can thicken the soup, and will make the soup more creamy. Don’t forget, the soup will also get thickened as it sits.
