Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup I Mommy Hates Cooking

A first for us but a soup that I have been looking forward to trying for a while now is Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup.  I thought I would try to adapt my Mom’s Easy Lasagna recipe into a soup.  Guess what?  It worked!

This tasted like a warm delicious slice of lasagna heaven.

Even better is that I had to do very little work to make this tasty dish.

Did I mention I have a mobile baby now?

Yes, very mobile.

What does this mean?

I can kiss the dreams of cooking dinner in peace goodbye!  We have a baby gate on the side of our kitchen that leads in from our playroom to keep my daughter from crawling into the kitchen.  As soon as I start dinner it never fails that she entertains herself perfectly fine then I start dinner.  Then she stands up on the side of the gate looking all pitiful like I locked her in jail.  Well, I can’t live with myself looking into those sparkly blue eyes so she usually wins!  That means, I need quick dinners, slow cooker meals, or daddy to the rescue!

Typically it’s daddy to the rescue but as we get closer to the holidays my husband’s work day gets later and later, which means he is normally coming in ready for dinner!

So, the slow cooker wins!  This soup did not disappoint, it was perfect for a very cold day.  It would be delicious paired with garlic bread or french bread.  I opted to try it with gluten free flavored bagel chips.  They were perfect!  So, you could also use bagel chips too.

One thing to remember when making this is soup is always put the noodles in within 30 minutes of finishing up the cook time and do not set the slow cooker to warm, be sure to remove the soup from the cooker or your noodles will continue to swell up in the slow cooker.

Are you ready for this yummy dinner?

    This looks delicious Kristy. I love slow cooker soups and lasagna so this would be a win/win.

    Made this yesterday. I did do it a bit different. I didn’t add the spinach because I usually dont eat regular lasagna with it. I used my regular recipe for lasagna for inspiration mostly. Next time I will add a can of diced tomatoes. I did add salt and onion. I used 2 ts of minced garlic though. I didn’t have basil. So, normally I would use oregano but for the life of me couldn’t find it. So, I used a tablespoon of italian seasoning. LOL. I was also low on lasagna noodles and used a little of Ditali pasta I had left over. Turned out perfect! Yummy! Will make again. Thanks for the recipe! Never thought to do lasagna as a soup and it turned out perfect and had cheese garlic bread with it.

    Yea this was really really nice, substituted mozzarella for cheddar cheese and used dolmio sauce instead of the recommended prego, but anyway was delicious, thanks for this!

    The soup turned out great – tasted exactly like lasagna. My only disappointment was the leftovers. I was so looking forward to having soup but all of the liquid absorbed into the noodles and it was more like a casserole .

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! With the leftovers, you may want to try adding some water or broth to it and maybe that would provide some more liquid.
