Basically lasagna in a bowl with LOTS of extra sauce. yes. You can even get that baked cheese top. So comforting and perfect rainy season dinner. Its definitely easier for week nights since its a one pot meal. It would also be easy to do in the slow cooker for that perfect simmer! (just add your lasagna noodles when you’re ready to eat!). We use beef but you can replace the meat with whatever you like (same for the veggies)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 TB chopped fresh basil
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp celery powder
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 1 can crushed tomatoes
- 2 bay leaves
- 6 cups unsalted beef broth
- 1 cup corn kernels
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 8 oz. lasagna noodles, broken into small pieces
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat a large pot over medium high heat, then add the olive oil and the ground beef seasoned with green seasoning, onion powder , garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and cumin powder. Brown and fully cook the beef for about 5-6 mins. When the beef is completely cooked, turn the heat down to medium and add the yellow onion. Season with salt, black pepper, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes, and cook for 10 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.
Add the garlic, stir and cook for 1 minute, then add the marinara sauce, crushed tomatoes, bay leaves and unsalted beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and put the lid on. Let the soup simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, cook the lasagna noodles in a separate pot. Bring a pot of water to a boil, season the water generously with salt, then cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions. When done cooking, drain and rinse the lasagna noodles, and set aside.
When the soup has finished simmering, check for seasoning by tasting the soup. Add more salt or pepper, if desired.
When ready to assemble the lasagna soup, place some lasagna noodles into the bottom of each bowl, ladle the lasagna soup on top, then top with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of basil. Serve hot. To get that browned cheese top- use oven safe bowls, place bowls on top of a tray and place under oven broiler for a couple minutes! SO GOOD!!
