Lasagna Soup

All the delicious lasagna taste, without as much work.  And this is a short cut type recipe – as I used jarred sauce.  You could certainly use your own homemade as well, or the jarred of your choice.

Ingredients:

Soup:

1 lb 93% lean ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 tsp of minced garlic
4 c beef broth
1 jar of trader joe’s organic tomato basil marinara
1 small can of petite diced tomatoes
1 TB dried oregano
2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
4 whole wheat lasagna noodles/sheets (4 ounces dried), broken into pieces

Topping:

3/4 c ricotta
4 TB parmesan
1 TB dried basil (or if you have some fresh that would be better)
1/2 tsp minced garlic

Directions:

  1.  Brown the ground beef, breaking up with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and  saute a few minutes.
  3. Add all the dried spices, the marinara sauce and broth.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for around 10 minutes.
  5. While soup is cooking, mix together topping ingredients.
  6. Increase heat and add the noodles when boiling. Cook 10-13 minutes, until noodles are done. Serve immediately.

Serving:

Divide soup into bowls, top each bowl with a portion of the topping mixture.  Serves 6-8.
