It’s gloomy weather here in San Diego. Perfect for a big ol’ bowl of this nourishing lasagna soup topped with creamy vegan pesto ricotta, and a sprinkle of plant based Mozzarella cheese.

Perfection in a bowl.

Oh, and did I tell you how easy this is to make? And that you only need one pot to make it? Hello, less dishes to wash!

Serve with fresh herbs and red chili flakes. Yum!

Heck, if you’re really in to serving things “family style” you can just give everyone a spoon and dig into the pot. No serving bowls required!

Sorry to repeat myself, but you have overwhelmingly asked for more quick and easy recipes on my Spicy RD Nutrition Survey, so ask, and you shall receive!!!

I made this vegan lasagna soup with my current vegetable obsession, asparagus, plus frozen peas because peas are AWESOME, and totally underrated IMO.

And, while I don’t follow a vegan diet, I love experimenting with more plant based foods, like vegan cheeses and pesto. I can attest that vegan cheese has come a long way since the first time I ate it, so give it a try!

Ingredients for Easy One Pot Vegan Lasagna Soup

  • Broth & Sauce. Vegetable broth, jarred marinara sauce, and tomato paste. Don’t have marinara? Use plain tomato sauce instead and add Italian seasoning or fresh basil.
  • Noodles. Gluten free (or regular) lasagna noodles.
  • Veggies. I used asparagus and frozen peas. Feel free to add whatever yummy veggies you have on hand.
  • Vegan Cheese & Pesto. Optional but tasty-nutritional yeast adds a boost of umami flavor.
  • Red Pepper Flakes. Totally optional, but totally necessary IMO.
