This warming lasagna soup recipe is proof that you can make a healthier version of your favorite comfort food and enjoy it every bit as much.

If you're thinking about making your own Italian seasoning blend, then look no further! All you need is handful of herbs + spices, mix them together, and wallah! You'll need 2 teaspoons of each simple ingredient:
You can keep leftover seasoning in a small tightly sealed jar and at room temperature for up to 6 months like your other herbs + spices.

I like to add some extra texture to velvety soups like this one. Most people might enjoy this creamy lasagna soup with a side of bread, which is totally fine. But I wanted to share a few more ideas incase you make this soup more than once and want to switch things up!
Other topping ideas include:
When it comes to most soup dishes, I often enjoy them with a side of bread of some sort. Most times, I make my own homemade Garlic Bread, however, you can choose to spruce things up with many other options such as:
A delicious Salad
Leftovers can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, for optimal freshness. Can also be frozen for 4-6 months. To defrost, simply place soup in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature before re-heating on the stove top to serve.
Technically, since this is a vegan lasagna soup, using lasagna noodles is ideal, however, like with most of my recipes you can always substitute the ingredients that work best for you! In this case, you can use any shape pasta that you desire. These work great: Penne, Tortellini, Gnocchi, Orzo, Fusilli, Rigatoni, Paccheri, Orecchiette, etc. are perfect.
Yes! To make this soup GF-friendly, simply substitute lasagna noddles with a gluten-free version (or other pasta) and ensure that other ingredients are GF-friendly and you use GF bread on the side, if using.
To make this soup in the slow cooker, simply sauté garlic, onions, and tomatoes before adding everything (including lasagna sheets) into your slow cooker and cooking on a low setting for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
