Thermomix Lasagna Soup

Published , Last Updated

Lasagna soup is everything you love about lasagna, the delicious flavour, the rich meaty goodness, and the warming homely feel. However, the soup version is so much simpler and quicker to make and a little friendlier on the waistline.

This recipe was suggested by one of my lovely Facebook group members. She sent me the link to a recipe on Taste and asked if I thought it could be made in the Thermomix. On that particular day, it was windy and wet. A soup was exactly what I wanted to eat!

I looked at various different recipes for the soup and also reviewed the comments after each recipe. There was a mix of opinions on each of the recipes. Some people were praising the concept and others were commenting that the dish tasted like watery bolognese.

I’m sure you can imagine how much the negative comments worried me. I didn’t want my Lasagna soup to taste watery, but I also didn’t think a big bowl of thick bolognese could be classed as a soup. BUT, I knew If I nailed this recipe I would have a very happy family!

Does your family LOVE lasagna? Mine does, but I absolutely hate making it!! It’s not that it’s a hard dish to make, but it does take time. Firstly I make the meat sauce, then the béchamel sauce. Then the dish gets assembled by alternating between layers of meat, béchamel sauce and pasta sheets. Once complete the lasagne is baked for 40 miutes until the pasta sheets are al denta and the top is golden.

It’s a labour of love and it takes time and a lot of dirty dishes. So I don’t make it very often. When I spend hours in the kitchen I want to prepare a masterpiece… not lasagna. So I had high hopes for this recipe. My dream was the family would embrace this soup and I would never have to make a traditional lasagna again!

The Taste Test

So in the moment of reckoning, what did the family think?

Firstly, he who does not eat… aka the 16-year-old came home from school in a HORRIBLE hormonal mood. He got cranky because I bought the wrong 2 minute noodles. Yes, he thinks 2-minute noodles are food. I apologized for getting the wrong noodles and then felt like an idiot for apologizing to an ungrateful hormonal teenager. So I told him to eat the dinner I had served instead and then go to his room if he can’t be polite.

I quickly exited the kitchen and went back to editing the pictures of the soup for this story. Next thing a voice from the kitchen yells out.

“This is awesome! It’s exactly what I felt like. Thank you so much mum!!”

I nearly fell over dead on the spot. What a miraculous turn around!!!

The rest of the family enjoyed the soup also but it was the huge change in attitude from the teenager that was mind-blowing!! I will continue to make this soup just so I have a weapon to calm the hormonal one!

Soup Serving Suggestions

Like all soups this one is perfect served with a crusty roll or garlic bread. I’ve included a cheese and sour cream topping for the dish so that it mimics the bechamel sauce in a traditional lasagna. But if you wanted a lighter meal you could easily omit the topping.
