The BEST Crockpot Lasagna Soup recipe!

Having a vegetarian hubby, we have a lot of lasagna for diner. It’s easy to make vegetarian, the kids love it, AND it’s fun to switch up the different fillings to make new and different kinds of lasagnas.

My Mexican Lasagna is a great example of ways to switch it up. (’s to die for, just sayin’)

Anywho, the other night while I was making my lasagna sauce, it HIT me! This would make an awesome soup! And what better way to cook a soup, then in the crockpot. Score! This one pot meal will be in our winter menu rotation, for sure!

Crockpot Lasagna Soup

Do you love lasagna? Then you are going to love this one pot Crockpot Lasagna Soup recipe. It literally is a one pot wonder!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 7 hours
Total Time 7 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 lb ground beef, lean or vegetarian crumble
  • 3 cups of beef broth or vegetable broth to make vegetarian
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 TB dried parsley
  • 1 TB dried basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1, 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1, 6 oz can of tomato paste
  • 1 cup V8 or any vegetable drink
  • 2 cups uncooked shell pasta
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • Optional topping- shredded cheese


  • NOTE about beef: The pictured meet is the vegetarian crumble... that is why it looks browned. You do NOT have to brown the beef before putting into the crock pot. I did not pre-cook the meat first. If you are using a higher fat ground beef (like an 80/20) you might want to precook to drain off some of the fat. But if you don’t mind the extra fat…that isn’t even necessary, just a suggestion.

  1. We just moved and I can’t find my crock pot! HELP!! Has anyone made this without? Also, do you “crumble” the meat in there, or just add the lump of it raw, and it falls apart while cooking?

    1. If you are going to do this recipe stove-top instead of the crockpot…this is what I would do. I would cook the noodles separate and set aside.Next, Saute the onion and garlic until soften. The add beef and cooked until browned. In a large pot, combine all the ingredients except the noodles. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 30-40 minutes, stirring every once and awhile. The last 10 minutes, add the noodles. Hope that helps!

      I did this tonight on the stove-top and it only took about 30 minutes to make. I browned the ground beef and onions together, in some water then drained and rinsed them (to get rid of as much of the grease as possible). Then I put everything in a pan, set it on medium high and stirred it every few minutes. I added water when it looked like it needed it and when the noodles were done I served it. I didn’t have any tomato paste so I just left it out, although I added a dash of sugar to give it a little sweetness that I thought the paste would of provided. This recipe turned out great and 3 of my 4 kids want to eat this again ~So that means it’s a success in my book! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    3. Hi. What is the answer to the other part of her question. Do you crumble up the raw hamburger when you put it in or just plop it in there and it crumbles as it cooks? Thanks!

    4. Nevermind, I saw my answer further down! Thanks!

      Corey, I did the stove-top method as you suggested. Perfection! Gracias for a great go-to recipe.

    6. So glad you loved it Phyllis!!

  2. Just to clarify…you put the noodles in uncooked, correct?

  3. Since every other crockpot recipe you’ve featured has been incorporated into our family’s favorites, this one is a no brainer to try next. Looks fantastic! Yum!!

    1. We love this soup! The only thing I change/add is a cheese mixture when I serve it. I mix 1 cup of shredded Parmesan, 1 cup of shredded Mozzarella, and 1/2 cup of Ricotta together in a bowl and put dollops in the soup when I serve it! It makes it taste more like Lasagna and gives it that creamy and cheesy texture and flavor it is missing without!

    can you just use a pasta sauce along with the beef broth and v-8 or does the paste, tomato’s and juice change the thickness?

    1. hmmmm. I have never tried it this way, but I don’ think it would change it that much. Maybe add an extra cup of water to it if it seems too thick. I would LOVE to hear how it turns out for you. I am sure the pasta sauce will work fine. Just watch your thickness 🙂 Hope that helps!
