I’ve been dreaming up this recipe for a looooong time. I have this ongoing list of recipe ideas on my phone, but then other recipes will pop into my head and those old recipes will be forgotten about. But when the temperature was a balmy 12 degrees F yesterday, I thought it was finally a good time to whip this guy up. Nothing makes me happier than a bowl of soup on a freezing cold day. JK. That was a straight up lie. You know what makes me happier? Sitting on a beach in a swimsuit drinking a margarita. That makes me much happier. But this soup still hits the spot while Denver has gone down the crapper when it comes to weather. Luckily the weatherman said that we haven’t hit the all time low record of -24 degrees F. So I guess I’m cool with 12. Count your blessings, am I right?
There are a few things you need to know about this soup before you make you it and love your life:
- It’s made with Cappello’s Lasagna Sheets. These lasagna noodles don’t need to be pre-cooked. All you need to do is thaw them out of the freezer then dunk them in the soup for a couple minutes. They are made with almond flour, cage-free eggs, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, and sea salt, which means they are paleo! What a rad company. And they are Colorado-based. Love them. But you can also use gluten free noodles, if you prefer!
- It’s topped with Kite Hill Ricotta Cheese. This alternative ricotta cheese is made with almond Milk (Water, Almonds), salt, enzymes, tartaric Acid, cultures. What a cool creation. If you’re a no-no when it comes to dairy, this is a great choice! But if you’re a yes-yes when it comes to dairy, simply use regular ricotta cheese, instead. You do you, baby boo!
- Last but not least, this soup is made with Kettle & Fire Bone Broth. If you’re making soups, USE BONE BROTH! There are so many health benefits when it comes to bone broth so just do it. No stock, just bone broth, ok? Just trust me and care for your body. It’s quite simple.
Ok, I think we can stop talk about soup at this point. Instead, let’s talk about the fact that I slept until 5:30am today. What a miracle. My body has been betraying me lately and waking me up at 4:30am every day, but it gave me a break today. It’s probably due to the fact that I watched 3 HOURS of the Bachelor. Three freaking hours. Thank god I watched it the next day so I could fast forward through the commercials, but I was still exhausted after watching all of it. And now they have another episode on tonight. That’s how dramatic these girls are on this season – they need 5 HOURS IN ONE WEEK to get through all of it. I had to take 2 seasons off of the Bachelor because Colton was as interesting as watching hair grow and Hannah said bbbbbbbuuuuuuut far too much, but I’m here for this season. Peter is a hot mess that simply wants to bang every girl so he’s telling every single one that he’s falling for them. And all the girls are young so they are super unstable and mean to each other. And I get it, I was 23 once. If you followed along when I first started my blog, you know I was incredibly unstable, as well. Luckily, my instability only played out online for 5 people to witness, instead of on television for millions to watch. Man, The Bachelor is pure gold. Google Mykenna’s tongue right now and enjoy the rest of your afternoon. You’re welcome!

Juli, speaking of the Bachelor, did you see the show Burning Love? It’s a Bachelor parody, and it’s now streaming free on Pluto TV. It’s got every comedic actor you can think of from the early 2010s. Check it out; it’s completely ridiculous and funny! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2292621/
never heard of it, but it looks hilarious!
Lasagna soup?! I love you for this I can’t wait to cook this up! I want to thank you again for all of the content you have created over the years. I have reached out through email and you read my “story” on your podcast, but you have really initiated a lot of positive change me and my family’s life through the years! And this fitness program is BOMB. Keep doing you Juju (yes, weird that my all of my sisters know exactly who I am referring to when I say “oh, this is Juju’s recipe” and “omg have you seen Juli’s story?”), I can’t wait to wrangle my boyfriend into doing this program with me :))) You’re a fucking badass boss lady!

I made this soup last night and it was amazing!!! I could not find the almond flour lasagne noodles, therefore, I put chickpea pasta noodles in the soup. So so good!! I was a little skeptical about the ricotta cheese on top but that is what made this soup so incredibly good!! Thank you!!!!
wooooohooo! glad you loved this soup as much as i did!!
I used chickpea pasta noodles too! Thank you costco.

I’m on day three of leftovers and loving life!!!!! I cannot wait to make this again.
I made this soup tonight and it’s delicious. I used collard greens instead of Kale but it still tastes great. It was also very easy to make! My 6 year old daughter loves it too!
so glad you liked it Shannon!
I made this last Friday night. I love your Friday emails and had to make this one right away! I used gluten-free rotini cause it’s what I had and it was fab! All the boys in my house loved it and that is a WIN! Thanks for a new regular for the rotation!
so glad you liked it Candice!
Such a good soup on a cold day. Love it and all your recipes…keep them coming girl 😉

So good! Made this for dinner last night and am currently eating leftovers for lunch! Taste just as good the next day. The ricotta topping is a must!
so glad you like the recipe Kelly!
So good! Easy to pull together on a weeknight. Great for leftovers.
so glad you liked it Krista!
This recipe was so easy to make and my husband loved it. He is not a fan of Kale or dairy alternatives and he actually said “I’m so glad you made me try this ricotta, it really adds to the soup in a delicious way”. So, Thank you for being here for these recipes and having them be free for all to enjoy.
I would love to make this!! It looks amazing! I do have a house of picky eaters, what would you recommend using instead of kale? Would spinach work?
that would definitely work, just put it right at the end because it won’t need to cook long
