  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced or diced carrots

Equipment

How To Make Lasagna In a Soup Bowl

To make it, you start by preparing your Crock Pot by spraying the crock with non-stick spray.

If you have time, cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon. Stir in the onions after the sausage is no longer pink. Sauté the onions until soft.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the meat and onions to the prepared crock. Discard the drippings. If you don’t have time, you can crumble the uncooked sausage straight into the crock. Stir in the onions, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon.

Add the carrots, chicken broth, chopped stewed tomatoes, and tomato sauce, stirring to combine. Cover, set the cooking time for 4-5 hours, and cook on Low.

Stir in the uncooked pasta and garlic and cover and continue cooking on Low for 1 to 1 ½ hours or until the pasta is tender but not mushy.

Stir in the mushrooms, cover, and cook another 10 minutes on Low. Just before serving, stir in the sliced spinach. (No need to cook the spinach; the heat from the soup will wilt it.)

To serve, divide the diced provolone or mozzarella cheese evenly into bowls and ladle soup into bowls. Top with Parmesan cheese and torn fresh basil.

Can I use ground beef, turkey, or chicken?

Yes. You can use lean ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken in place of sausage. Be sure to cook the meat prior to adding it to the slow cooker. The flavor of the soup will change depending on which meat you use.

What should I serve with Lasagna Soup?

This delicious soup pairs well with crusty bread and a garden salad.

Is this recipe dairy-free?

No. If you avoid dairy, you will need to use vegan-friendly mozzarella shreds in place of the mozzarella cubes and a vegan-friendly Parmesan.

Can I use something other than chicken broth?

You can use chicken stock or vegetable broth in place of chicken broth.

About Stock the Crock Slow Cooker Cookbook

Stock the Crock cookbook.

Lasagna In a Soup Bowl is just one of 100 recipes in Stock the Crock. What makes this new cookbook stand out is that there are 200 easy-to-follow variations that you can use to adapt the recipes for any dietary preference, such as gluten-free, paleo, and vegan.

Phyllis Good is the author of the extremely popular Fix-It and Forget-It series. Her cookbooks have outsold more copies in the US than Ina Garten, Giada De Laurentiis, and Jamie Oliver – combined!

What’s Inside Stock the Crock

Stock the Crock is a beautiful cookbook with full-color pictures to accompany the recipes, providing the reader with a little tasty temptation. Phyllis begins the book with an introduction, followed by advice on how to use the book. (I love how she encourages readers to write notes in the book.)  There is a section on Slow Cooker Fundamentals that includes some tips and tricks, as well as information on how to poach in a slow cooker, how to cook in it, along with some slow cooker hacks.

The recipes are divided into seven sections:

  • Soups, Stews, and Chowders
  • Vegetarian and Pasta Mains
  • Poultry
  • Beef and Pork
  • Fish and Seafood
  • Sides
  • Sweet Treats

What I find appealing is that most of the recipes are made with simple ingredients that you can find at your local grocery store. Also, I like tips that are included with the recipes, such as the Simple Swaps, Make It For Two, Make It For Picky Eaters, and Make It Vegetarian.

Dessert In a Slow Cooker

Did you know that you can use your slow cooker to make desserts? It’s true, and in Stock the Crock, there are 20 recipes for sweet treats that you can make in your crock. Among the recipes are Pumpkin Spice Creme Brulee, Slow-Cooker Brownies, Coconut Rice Pudding, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake with Sauce.
