You guys.

This turkey lasagna soup is amazing.

This soup (stew?) was whipped up on one weekend of chaos. My friend came up for the weekend with her girls and the house was a whirl of shrieking kids, the dog barking with joy and the cat hiding in my room to avoid the aforementioned kids and dog. The noise in my house had reached sonic boom level. The adults were trying to get ready to go out for a fancy dinner and I had known I would have to feed the masses lunch at one point that day.

The masses were fed. The masses were entirely satisfied with this soup.

Sometimes I feel that I just don’t have the words to describe how awesome a recipe is and this is one of those times. I can tell you that I wondered why I ever bothered eating lasagna in its solid form. I can tell you that the cheese + lasagna noodles + rich Italian flavored base = heaven in a bowl. Words like hearty, soul satisfying and comfort food also pop into my mind.

You’re just going to have to make it and try it for yourself, I think.

Now it really is more like a stew, or a deconstructed lasagna rather than a soup with a light broth.

It’s heavy, with barely any broth to it. If you wanted, you can certainly up the broth to seven cups instead of six, see what it’s like at the end and decide.

Holy Dinah, lookit that cheese. Doesn’t that make you just sigh with delight?

So my loves, put this on your menu this week. I mean it. Make it. Sometimes I can be incredibly bossy and this is one of those times, do not skip this recipe. If you want you can sub in ground beef but there is something bang on perfect about the turkey in this recipe, plus it’s a little bit healthier for you.

You can also sub in white pasta noodles instead of whole wheat (but there is something so toothsome and right about those whole wheat noodles in a soup) and use low-fat cheese if you like. Feel free to play around with it.

Here’s my new video showing how to do so quickly and easily (part of my new series, The Kitchen Magpie Cooks! on YouTube)

Happy cooking everyone! Let me know what you think!

    I have to try this soon! I think it will be a huge hit with my family!

  2. Mary P Hoffman says

    It looks amazing! What a great cold weather treat!

  3. alexleerichard says

    I made this for dinner last night and it was AMAZING! However, I made a few changes… I did not use tomato paste because I didn’t have any on hand! So I used a jar of my favorite spaghetti sauce (Classico- Florentine spinach @ cheese) Also,  I used a can of Rotel and green chilies in place of the can of diced tomatoes. I did not add the sugar as I am not a fan of sweet sauce. Instead of the mozz cheese I put a scoop of Ricotta on top. Wow!!! I cant wait to eat some of the leftovers for lunch today. MUST TRY! Thank you, KARLYNN!

  4. Amy Melby says

    I made this last week, and it was delicious. Thumbs up from all family members, including the 7 year old daughter. Will definitely be making again! Thanks for the recipe! (oh, and I had 6 cups of stock and it was still more on the soup-y side, which was great).

  5. Tania Brunet says

    Let me know how it turns out! I’ve been eying up this recipe for a while.

  6. Amy Melby says

    Just assembled this to throw into my crockpot in the am for dinner tomorrow! Yum!

  7. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Strong tasting. I find the stuff in the cartons VERY weak. I make my own, and make it strong!

  8. Victoria Boscow says

    Made this last night. It was a HUGE hit! I did not have any paste though so I used 2 cans of tomato sauce and it turned out just fine. Maybe supier than the original recipe, but my family didn’t know any better. We just sopped up the extra liquid with bread and butter. 😉

  9. Victoria Boscow says

    Awesome.. thanks! Now it’s just needs to COOL OFF here so we can enjoy hot food! Sigh…

  10. The Kitchen Magpie says

    You bet, just replace it with a lb of shredded or diced Turkey!

  11. Victoria Boscow says

    So, when you said you can use left over Thanksgiving turkey, how much turkey would you use? I have a whole turkey breast in my freezer I was going to pop in my pressure cooker for this recipe and make a couple recipes worth. Would it be about a lb of shredded turkey breast you think?

  12. Victoria Boscow says

    Yum!! I’m working on converting this to a freezer meal right now…LOL

  13. Judith Hilborn Ball says

    I enjoyed your video just wish I could get my husband to eat pasta , he is British , won’t eat ground turkey never mind pasta. Me, anything with pasta and I ‘m in. The sugar tip was a good idea, when my children were growing up they too loved their pasta and my trick was always to add a little sugar in the sauce.
