Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Course Soup
Servings 4


  • 1 pound ground beef lean
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt kosher
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 cups beef broth low-sodium
  • 1 jar marinara sauce 24 ounces
  • 28 ounces canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Parmesan cheese rind optional
  • 8 ounces dried lasagna noodles 8 to 10 sheets, broken into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  • In a large skillet, cook the lean ground beef until it’s no longer pink. Break it into crumbles as it cooks and drain any excess fat.
  • Add diced onion to the cooked beef and cook for 2-3 minutes until the onion turns translucent. Stir in minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  • Transfer the cooked beef, onion, and garlic mixture to the crockpot.
  • Add the remaining salt and pepper, low-sodium beef broth, marinara sauce, crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan cheese rind (if using). Stir to combine.
  • Add broken lasagna noodles to the crockpot. Stir to ensure even distribution in the soup.
  • Cover the crockpot and set it to cook on high heat for 3-4 hours or on low heat for 6-8 hours. This allows the flavors to meld and the soup to simmer and thicken.
  • While the soup cooks, prepare the cheese mixture. In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese, shredded Mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and dried oregano.
  • Once the noodles are tender and the soup is ready, ladle it into serving bowls. Spoon a generous dollop of the cheese mixture on top of each serving.
  • Garnish each bowl of Lasagna Soup with fresh basil leaves.
  • Enjoy the delightful flavors of this Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup with its comforting layers and cheesy goodness!
