Slow Cooker Ground Beef Lasagna Soup is great for a weeknight meal. We love this one at my house – even the kiddos!

  2. Add all of the spices and bouillon cubes to the slow cooker.
  3. Add water and spread your broken UNCOOKED lasagna noodle pieces all around. (do not use no-bake noodles, make sure they are regular lasagna noodles like the ones shown here.)
  4. Crumble RAW ground beef over top.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 7-8 hours or on High for 4-5 hours.
  6. Approximately half hour or so before done, stir in the Ricotta cheese.
  7. Serve with shredded Mozzarella Cheese on top!

Happy Crocking!

Yes! That was my one complaint! Next time i will add them 60-90 mins later.
But the ground beef was perfectly cooked in only 4 hours on HIGH.

Is the tomato soup cream of tomato? If not would you be more specific. Thank you so much.

I’ve made this twice, and love it! I put Ricotta cheese in each bowl, rather than the big crock pot. Next time, I want to try raw spinach on top about an hour prior to serving. Thanks, I love your Crocker recepies!!!!

How does the ground beef turn out not pre-cooking first? Just wondering…..never tried it that way. Always “heard” it was best to brown ground beef before adding to a crock pot, but this way is quicker & easier!

Whenever I am making a crockpot recipe that calls for ground beef, I always put the beef in raw and it turns out fine. Just make sure your are using the 93% lean ground beef or higher, otherwise it will add a lot of fat to your recipe and make it greasy. Also, be sure to crumble the beef into the desired size because large chunks do not fall apart during crocking.

I was wondering if it would be ok to use pasta sauce instead of the cans of tomato products? I happen to have pasta sauce on hand and was wanting to use it up.

I have used cottage cheese for lasagna but I put it through the food processor until it has the consistency of ricotta.

the cottage cheese will add extra salt to the recipe where ricotta cheese doesn’t have that much salt in it. I am going to try this – sounds really good –

You could use extra dry cottage cheese instead of ricotta. The dry cottage cheese does not have as much liquid as regular and before using it strain out the liquid. Hope this helps

It was a team a effort for the family. I prepared everything the night before. The following morning my husband put the lasagna n beef n in the afternoon around 3 when our daughter got home from school she added the ricotta cheese n we all top it off with the mozzarella cheese n it was delicious. Will cook this again n again.

Can ground turkey be substituted for the beef as long as I brown it first?

Amy

I’ve loved a lot of your recipes, but this one didn’t turn out well for us. Everything was a gloppy, mixed mess. I followed the directions exactly. I used the low setting and the noodles were falling apart and almost indistinguishable from the rest. Everything sort of combined to make a thick gravy like substance. My sons likened it to lasagna put through a blender. I’m sure a soup like this would be good, but perhaps a crockpot recipe would have the noodles added much later in the day?

Linda

I’d like to know if you put the noodles in later so they don’t get mushy, how long do they have to cook for before they’re done? I’ve never cooked pasta in the crock before. Thank you.

Tried this today. Very sad. The noodles were so mushy they resembled missed potatoes. And after cooking 8 hours the ground beef still wasn’t cooked. Had to throw out the whole pot! Hope others have better luck!

I used ground turkey. I’ve never made this before, and I probably never will again. I think it would have been better if I browned the ground turkey and put it in. The whole thing had the consistency of baby food. I’m super disappointed ๐Ÿ™

I loved it. I actually put the noodles in for only 2 hours on low and I left out the ricotta all together (because I was a ding dong and forgot to buy it!!) I was wonderful!!! Definitely a hit.

I made the recipe exactly as in the recipe and it came out perfect..no mushy noodles or anything…I did cook it on low and am wondering if cooking on high might change that but I plan on making two batches for a school function tomorrow…the teachers will love it!

I used a roaster and doubled the recipe and left it for half the day. It didn’t turn into a soup, but instead, it turned into the best easiest to make and moist lasagna we have ever tasted. I don’t think I want to make a soup out of it now.

First crack at this and it turned out great- only had beef oxo, used 3 tsps, added extra lasagna noodles from the start, and used pasta sauce. Everything cooked up fine after 7 hrs on LOW including ground beef- noodles were nice and soft, but not mushy. If you’re worried about noodles just cook them separately and add them with ricotta cheese.But found this recipe very easy to follow and versatile with what I have on hand.Thanks!

Hi there- is there any way to decrease the sodium on this? For example, do I have to use tomato soup, beef bouillon and chicken boullion? All those are high in sodium. I was thinking of just removing the tomato soup altogether and doing 4 cups of low sodium beef broth instead.

Thanks!

Just wondering…. I was telling someone about this recipe and they asked me this question… “Wouldn’t it be pretty greasy if you don’t brown the ground beef first?” Got me thinking about it.. How does that work?

Thank you!

I am a dummy and just threw everything in the crock pot! Even the ricotta cheese. Do I need to throw it out? Sorry didn’t read till later that you added that the last hour… Ugh

Made this tonight & we loved it! This will become
a regular dish in our rotation. We added a can of
Rotel (drained of juices) because we prefer spicy.
Also sprinkled in red pepper flakes with the other
spices. I added the noodles 2-2 1/2 before we were
to eat and I put in 10-11 broken noodles. We love
pasta so the more the merrier. Really loved
the flavor & consistency. Thank you for the recipe!

THIS RECIPE IS SO EASY AND FLAVORFUL. IT TASTES LIKE LASAGNA BUT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO MAKE. THE NOODLES COME OUT PERFECT! THIS IS PERFECT FOR A COLD NIGHT OR A POT LUCK. MY HUSBAND REALLY LIKED IT. WOULD DEFINITELY MAKE IT AGAIN.
