Lasagna Soup

This is one of the best soups I’ve made this year…it tastes just like lasagna.  So easy and so good.  Thank you  Bobby Dean for the recipe!!  Another winner I will be making a lot!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 lb. of ground italian sausage
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 (32 ounce) chicken broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) tomato sauce
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) petite dice tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red peppers
  • about 4 broken whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large Dutch oven. Add the sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is crumbled and browned, 8 – 10 minutes.
Add the broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes. Add the noodles; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the soup thickens slightly and the noodles are tender, 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in mozzarella, basil, and the Parmesan. (whole-wheat lasagna noodles take a little longer to cook.)

Serve with your favorite crusty bread or bread sticks.  Enjoy!
