Came up with this by accident. Has become a family favorite. Cheap, easy, and everyone loves it. If desired (try it without first) top individual servings with favorite cheese. I have never used cheese in it and no one notices. Goes great with garlic bread.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook and stir the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease. Pour in the water, bring to a boil, and stir in the bouillon cubes until the cubes are dissolved. Mix in broken lasagna noodles, tomato soup, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until the lasagna noodle pieces are tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove about 1 cup of sauce from the skillet, and mix with the cornstarch; return mixture to skillet, and simmer to thicken, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

I give this 5 stars for ease of preparation. It sounds really tasty. I'll try it but make this change. The beef cubes are usually really salty....I recommend substituting beef broth. Read More

This is probably my favorite recipe from this site. We make it about once a week. I do make a few changes. We use only a half pound of ground beef, 2 cans of tomato soup, 2 cups of rotini noodles. We like ours a bit more soupy and 1 lb of ground beef was far too much. Garlic powder instead of cloves because it is much easier (1/8tsp per clove). I do keep the bouilon in the recipe, a little less italian seasoning and omit the cornstarch altogether because it didn't seem to do much aside from leave clumps of cornstarch. We used to make a lasagna soup and this has definitely replaced it. Amazing! Read More

I used reduced sodium beef broth in place of the water and sodium filled bouillon cubes and healthy request canned soup. Mixed in the "Italian Seasoning Mix" from this site for the Italian seasoning. This took longer than the time specified for the noodles to cook. After 10 minutes uncovered I simmered covered for another 10 minutes. This made the broth thick so no corn starch was needed. My daughter thought this had a little sweet taste to it. After all was said and done thumbs up. I mixed in low-fat cottage cheese in mine. Hubby added crushed red pepper flakes to his. The pre-packaged mixes might be a little cheaper but this hands down tastes better. Read More

I didn't have all these ingredients on hand so I used 1 cup chicken stock and 3 cups water instead of the beef bouillon and a can of tomato paste instead of tomato soup. I also added a quick bechamel sauce (butter sour cream flour garlic powder fresh ground pepper) to top it off. Then sprinkled a bit of mozzarella. Was very good passed hubby's test will make it again! Read More

This was a huge hit tonight with my family! Couple of changes... I used 1 cup water and 3 cups beef broth instead of bouillion. No cornstarch and no Italian seasoning. It thickened up just fine not soupy at all! We added some cheese on top and even my picky eaters had seconds! Super easy! Read More

I really like this recipe because it is easy quick and I usually always have these ingredients on hand. I did do one thing different though I substituted the beef bouillon cubes with beef stock. Read More

I loved this recipe on it's own and would have given it 4.5 stars if that was possible. I made some changes to make it a 5 star for my family. - 1/2 the called for Italian seasoning - Add a can or two (15 oz)of either Stewed or Italian Stewed tomatoes - Used pre-minced garlic from the jar. - Kept adding broken lasagna noodles till it was just exploding with them...we like noodles!! The point is its sooooo easy to adjust this recipe for your own taste. Read More

I made this and it was okkkkk but I am not sure it'll go into the main rotation. Instead of the bouillon cubes i used a can of beef broth and a can of chicken broth. Used a can of tomato sauce instead of soup. It was so thick I ended up having to add more broth and cooking another 20 minutes in order to get the noodles soft so I never used the cornstarch.
