This Weight Watchers Lasagna Soup is so delicious! It’s warm and comforting and there’s no actual pasta in it! But I’ve got a special surprise to take it’s place – and I loved it! This soup even has a touch of cheese and is 5 points on Green and 4 each on the Blue and Purple plans.
The one thing NOT missing is that warm comfort that you get with traditional lasagna soup. I topped this with a tablespoon of ricotta and a sprinkling of Parmesan – it really worked. I also froze the leftovers and they reheated really well!
What did you use instead of pasta in your lasagna soup???
Traditional Lasagna Soup has 14 points in a bowl! This only has 4-5!
Hearts of Palm! I came across these lasagna “sheets” that are only 2 points for the whole package! They come in slices about 2″ x 4″ and then I cut them into more bite-sized pieces since they’re going in a soup.
The brunt of the points in this recipe come from the pasta sauce – I used a Tomato Basil Sauce that was 14 points for the jar. You could swap for a fat free marinara type of sauce – I just couldn’t find one.
The points saving by using the hearts of palm lasagna sheets was crazy! 2 oz of lasagna noodles are 6 points and you would need at least 6 oz – so 18 vs 2 – I think that is DEFINITELY worth the trade off.
Tell me about Weight Watchers?
I joined WW right before the new year and have been on it before. It works for me because it allows me to be flexible. With the blog, I eat what I cook – so I need that flexibility of kind of eating what I want. It’s nice though because it forces portion control by giving you “points” for the day.

How do you make Weight Watchers Lasagna Soup?
- Start by turning your ground turkey into a turkey sausage! I added a few seasonings to give it that sausage flavor (fennel, oregano, rosemary, parsley, salt)
- Brown ground turkey, onion and garlic
- Stir in your “noodles”, chicken stock, marinara, water, salt and pepper
- Bring to a boil and simmer
- Then serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan and a dollop of ricotta (the ricotta makes it for me!)
Can you freeze Lasagna Soup?
Yes!!! I froze without the ricotta – then topped it after reheating. I always have small container of fat free ricotta on WW. it’s 1 point for 6 tablespoons and is great on pizza, soups and more!
