Want an easier way to make lasagna? Make lasagna soup! This easy one-pot meal will please everyone…even the pickiest eaters and it can be doubled to feed a large crowd or made as the recipe states and divided into multiple meals for the week! For an added boost of protein, try adding cottage cheese to your serving! We love to dish out a serving and then add one serving (1/2 cup) of low fat 2% cottage cheese to add 13 additional grams of protein to our meal!


  •  93/7 ground turkey (1 lb or 16 oz)
  •  Chicken Broth (4 cups)
  • Lasagna noodles (we used Barilla oven-ready lasagne) (102 grams dry or 2 servings)
  • Canned diced tomatoes (14.5 oz can)
  • Tomato paste (5 tbsp or 82.5 g)
  • Diced onion, red or white (50g)
  • Garlic powder (2 tsp)
  • Italian seasoning (2 tsp)


  •       In a large pot, saute the diced onion with a few sprays of cooking oil or 1/4 cup of water until soft and then add ground turkey, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.  Cook on Medium heat until brown. Next, add chicken broth, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste. Stir until everything is  combined and the tomato paste has melted into the soup. Break the dry lasagna noodles into pieces and drop into the pot, stir and place lid on to cook noodles. I keep the temp on medium low. The soup will be finished when the noodles have softened, usually 10-15 minutes.  Mix in cottage cheese for added protein and chili pepper flakes, aka pizza peppers for added heat! *I also add salt and pepper to taste.
