Serving suggestions

  • Serve this easy vegetarian lasagna soup warm topped with three cheese topping and freshly cracked pepper, salt flakes, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes (optional).
  • The soup is good on its own and a complete meal but to make it more filling serve it with a side of salad or sandwich or cheesy garlic bread.

Notes

  • No boil, as well as regular noodles, work for this recipe. Or replace it with your favorite pasta shape.
  • Break the noodles in bite-size pieces and mix them well so they don't stick to each other. Also, make sure they are under liquid so they cook evenly.
  • Lasagna noodles (like pasta) have a tendency to soak up all the liquid so serve immediately.
  • If planning to serve later, cook the noodles separately, and add to the soup just before serving and give it a boil so the flavors soak up.
  • To prevent burn errors, make sure to deglaze the pot and mix everything well before closing the lid.
  • This recipe can be doubled, cooking time remains the same.
  • Adjust the liquid quantity (veg broth) to the consistency you like for the soup.
