I absolutely never get sick of soups. Even in the throws of Summer when it’s blazing hot outside I still crave a bowl of soup on a regular basis. This is one of my new favorites and I already know I’ll be making this for the rest of the year.

This soup is rich, creamy, and comes together in about 30 minutes. Everything I want in a quick weeknight dinner! The best part is that it’s a soup version of a pasta dish I just can’t get enough of. I’m rarely a fan of traditional ground beef and red sauce lasagna but white chicken lasagna is right up my alley.

This soup is so easy and so delicious I know that you and your family will love it. To make it, start by cooking chicken in a large pot just until cooked through, then transfer it to a plate and cover to keep warm while you make the soup.

In the same pot where you cooked the chicken, make a roux by melting butter and stirring in some minced garlic for a minute or so until nice and fragrant. Stir flour into the butter so that it thickens, then gradually whisk in milk and chicken broth.

Add seasonings and shredded parmesan cheese and cream cheese and stir until cheese is melted and incorporated into the soup. Give it a taste, add salt and pepper if needed, and add cooked lasagna noodles and the cooked chicken. Serve soup immediately and top it off with cracked black pepper and additional parmesan cheese.

hey girl- this soup looks so yummy!

I tried this last night, and it was delicious! The kids really liked it as well- a nice and comforting soup. One thing that I found is that the lasagna noodles, even though they were broken up smaller, seemed too much for a typical spoon to handle. It was almost like you needed a fork. I think I might try penne next time for easier eating. Other than that, it was SO amazing.

I made this soup last week. OMG this is sooooo good. My family moans and groans when i make soups or stews for dinner. This however, was a major hit. It is a super rich soup that fills your belly with just a half of a serving. Next time I make it, which will be tonight, I will use milk INStead of half and HALF to cut down on the richness. I will also use either elbow Or penne PASTA due to the lasagna noodles being so awkward in a BOWL. This recipe is a keeper.

    It’s for sure one of our most favorite soups around here as well! Happy to hear it was enjoyed by all!
