I am sure that long time readers of The Kitchen Magpie are familiar with my love for my Turkey Lasagna Soup. It’s what I serve at games night, what we eat when we are craving comfort food, it is my go-to soup recipe, hands down.

What if I told you that I just tweaked the recipe and it’s now even better?

The goal? To come up with a simple swap using their delicious sausage products – which are already a household staple – to boost the flavour in my dishes and then share my recipe revamps with all of you. Can we say F-U-N? This is what I live for, making comfort food even better!

I knew instantly when I saw ground Italian Sausage that I was going to use it to amp up my standby Turkey Lasagna Soup recipe. Since it’s already ground, there’s no de-casing the sausages – something I’m sure that we’ve all done to incorporate ground sausage into a dish – and it’s seriously the simplest, most delicious swap that I’ve ever come up with.

You start out the same way as my old recipe except this time we are frying up the mild Italian Sausage meat. It browns absolutely beautifully, with tons of moisture and the beautiful part is that you start smelling those herbs and spices right away. I love that I didn’t have to mess around with more spices. I also love when a product really does come through for you; the spices in this are divine. I love that I didn’t have to take any sausage out of their cases and fried this up as easy and can be.

I also approve of the flavour choices, Most ground italian sausage  comes in Mild, Sweet and Hot. While I was very happy to find the mild flavour, I know that there are a lot of you out there that would enjoy the heat of the Hot flavour in this soup!

Once it’s ready, you just pile on the mozza cheese – we prefer the pizza mozza as it gets all stringy and lovely when you eat it – let it melt and enjoy!

I made this Italian Sausage Lasagna Soup for lunch for Mike and I the other day and in all honesty, there’s no going back to my turkey version again. I swapped in beef broth and that combined with the ground Italian Sausage made the best soup that I have ever tasted. We ate this for lunch, then I proceeded to feed it to us all (including the kids) for supper that night as well. It makes a large portion that is perfect for leftover lunches the next day

I have two more recipes coming with sausage in the next couple of weeks, stay tuned for my next recipe revamps! I am really excited about these ones as well, you’ll just have to wait and see!

Love you more than chocolate.

  1. Becky Williams says

    You need to correct the amount of tomato paste and tomatoes. You left off the size can, so I went with what you have listed in the Turkey recipe.

  2. Jill says

    Do you really only use 1 ounce of tomato paste and diced tomatoes? That doesn’t seem like much.

    • Madeline St. Onge says

      You need to correct the recipe 1 OZ of tomato paste is nothing 🙁

  3. Estee Kennedy says

    I was really please how this Lasagna Soup turned out. It’s a winner for sure, everyone including my picky husband just loved it! I told my son about it and he’s a chef and he said I had to send it to him, so I did. I know he’s going to love it as much we do! Thank you so much for such a terrific recipe. Oh and as a side note I followed the recipe exactly, no additions or changes which extremely unusual for me.5 stars

  4. Ethel MacDonald says

    Oh and my sister snuck in some extra noodles while I wasn’t looking so that is why it looks so thick 🙂

  5. Ethel MacDonald says

    This is currently in my crockpot right now, T-2 hours and counting. It smells so yummy! Will let you know how it turns out 🙂

  6. Carleen Rous says

    I also use it in my hamburger soup. No additional spices required and so good!

  7. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Right? Turkey is still a good choice for those who don’t eat red meat, but the Italian Sausage makes it like the best lasagna you’ve ever tasted, in a soup. I would use it in an actual lasagna too!

  8. The Kitchen Magpie says

    There are two more recipes coming with their products as well!

  9. Carleen Rous says

    ….and we thought it was amazing with turkey! Must try your new version!

  10. Ethel MacDonald says

    ohhhh yummy, might try it this weekend 🙂

  11. Kimberley Tremblay says

    I LOOOOOOOVE the Johnsonville sausage!!!!!! Can’t wait to try this recipe! *droooooooooool!!!!!*

  12. Amy Melby says

    We aren’t big fans of Italian sausage at my place so I’m sticking with the ground turkey. My family loves it! Last time I added a big container of spinach to it as well and my 7 year old STILL gobbled it up, haha
