A big bowl of soup nourishes the heart as well as the stomach, spreading that feeling of love and satisfaction all the way through you. This Lasagna Soup is indeed like lasagna in a bowl, packed with the comforting flavors of the lasagna we know and grew up with. What puts this soup over the top is the most decadent ooey-gooey spoonful of ricotta that is scooped on top and melts right into the other ingredients.
If you think this sounds too complicated to pull together, think again. This Lasagna Soup has 20 minutes of active cooking time and then it simmers for another 30 minutes on the stove. As one of my new favorite recipes these days, this easy and delicious soup can feed a crowd.

1 yellow onion, chopped
