White Lasagna Soup

This is a Pioneer Woman original recipe that I tweaked to make my own. Now that I have, I’m not sure I’d use the term “lasagna” to describe it but it does grab your attention! Give this easy, hearty, creamy soup a try and let me know what you’d call it, besides delicious! Enjoy!!

Ingredients: Feeds 4

  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 16oz sliced mushrooms (I like portobello)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • 2tbsp flour
  • 6 cups low sodium stock (chicken or veggie work best)
  • 1 cup light cream or milk
  • 1tbsp prepared pesto sauce
  • 8oz no-boil lasagna noodles, broken into pieces
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken (optional)
  • 4 handfuls fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
  • shredded parmesan and/or ricotta as a garnish

Directions:

  1. In a large enamel coated cast iron pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally, until soft and moisture has evaporated.
  2. Add garlic, Italian seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add flour and stir to coat mushrooms.
  3. Pour stock over mushroom mixture and mix well. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until soup begins to thicken. Add cream/milk and pesto, then the noodles and stir. Continue to simmer and stir as soup thickens.
  4. Once thickened (soup coats the back of a wooden spoon), reduce heat and add cooked chicken and spinach. Stir to incorporate and let heat a few minutes more until spinach is wilted. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan or a dollop of ricotta although in my humble opinion, it doesn’t even need it!
