What are oven-ready lasagna noodles?Oven-ready lasagna noodles are pre-cooked noodles that have then been dehydrated before packaging. They can be found at most major grocery stores.Can I use other types of noodles in Lasagna Soup?Any Italian pasta will taste great in this Lasagna Soup. I prefer large bites of noodles, so if I’m changing things up I would choose medium-sized shells, farfalle, or Mafalda, which look like miniature lasagna noodles. Want a real savory and comforting soup? Try adding cheese filled Tortellini’s instead! Make sure that you alter the cook times depending on the type of noodle used.How do I store and reheat leftovers?Lasagna Soup can be stored in the fridge for as long as 4 days. It also freezes really well for up to 3 months. The cheese mixture can’t be frozen, so you’ll need to remake that portion of the recipe once you thaw your soup. To store leftover Lasagna Soup in the freezer, transfer it to an airtight container. Thaw in the fridge overnight then reheat slowly on the stove, stirring often.Can lasagna soup be made in the crock pot? I know how tempting soup in the slow cooker can be. Technically this recipe can be made in the crock pot, adding noodles about an hour out and adding ricotta mixture about an hour out. However, there are so many layers to putting in ingredients in at a different time, I highly recommend sticking to the stove top version.
