Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup is the a quick mix of easy, winter, slow cooker, pasta and cheese perfection. We’re a huge fan of slow cooker soups because they’re warm, filling and easy!

Plus with holidays and cold weather and school in full swing, time is in short supply.

You can certainly cook the “gravy” or meat sauce on low for 8 hours if you’d prefer and add the noodles in cooked or in the last two hours of cooking.

I’ve set this to the same timing as my Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese because I prefer to have everything cook together but if you have different time requirements you can certainly make adjustments.

The BEST Slow Cooker Beef Lasagna Soup ever!

Some important notes about cooking this Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup:

  • This recipe calls for crushed tomatoes. Buy the best quality crushed tomatoes you can, I recommend these.
  • For tomato paste, if you don’t use it often buy a tube. Less waste! OR freeze leftover tomato paste for another recipe.
  • For the Parmesan cheese use shaved or shredded. Grated cheese won’t melt well.
  • I use all beef in this lasagna soup, but the sausage flavor in most restaurant lasagnas is one I love duplicating. To do that easily here without using sausage, I add in some fennel seeds with goes a long way in making it taste like a Slow Cooker Beef and Sausage Lasagna.
  • Check the doneness at the lower end of the times given, if not quite done cook for the additional hour.

How long does it take to cook pasta in the slow cooker? Pasta in the slow cooker is something you need to be mindful of for your personal slow cooker. Some can cook it through in 90 minutes, some take 3 hours. The first time you make this recipe check the doneness after 2 hours.

Tools used in the making of Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup:

    1. I’m in the process of testing my recipes using a instant pot so stay tuned! If you need it sooner than I can provide, you might be able to find a recipe online with similiar ingredients and use that as a guideline to follow for the IP.

  1. I would love to make this! Can I stretch the cooking time 8hours? I work long days it’s tough to do short cooking times. I’m guessing cook the noodles just before eating.

    1. Most slow cookers will turn to a “warm” setting once the cook time is done but I’d be afraid if you left it in there that long, it might dry out the noodles. I think making the noodles separate will eliminate that issue. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Thanks!

  2. I made this yesterday – in part because it was cold, and because it sounded good and I made the white chicken chili recipe from this site the day before and it was totally delicious. It made a TON of soup (2lbs of meat and it’s just 2 of us, lol!), and ours came out a little thicker, almost like a lasagna chili, if that makes sense. I didn’t add quite as much cheese, mostly because cleaning up cheesy messes is such a pain, but it didn’t need a ton, in my opinion, because it’s so flavorful. It is FILLING, in a totally good way! Yum!!

  3. We made this a few nights ago. Friggin delish! I used bowties instead of lasagna noodles because I wanted bite sized pasta pieces. We will be doing this one over and over. Thank you!!

  4. Way too many noodles !!!! It absorbed all the liquid so I added more liquid the next day when I cooked leftover. I’d recommend only a few strips . other than that it was delicious! Only took 2 hours

  5. I made this today…cold and snowy in WI in mid April. :(. It was perfection!  Husband and 5 yr old gave a solid thumbs up. Thanks for the recipe.
