Ingredients

  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground beef (can be subbed for italian sausage, or half and half)
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 14 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 4-6 cups chicken broth (start with 4, add more as needed for a thinner soup)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 TBS Italian seasonings
  • 10 lasagna noodles (broken into 1-2 inch pieces)

For the Cheese Topping:

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Add your olive oil to a large stock pot and heat over medium high. 
  • Add in the diced onion and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring regularly, until the onions get fragrant and start to turn translucent. 
  • Add in the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. 
  • Add in the ground beef, and cook until its cooked through, stirring often. Drain out the grease. 
  • Dump in the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, chicken broth (start with 4 cups), salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and broken lasagna noodles. 
  • Continue to cook as the mixture comes to a boil, and cook until the noodles are cooked through. Stir occasionally. It should take about 15-20 minutes.  Add more chicken broth as it cooks if needed for the consistency you want for the soup.

For the Cheese Topping:

  • While the soup is cooking, mix together the mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta, and salt in a small bowl. 
  • Once the noodles are cooked through scoop the soup into individual bowls. 
  • Top each soup bowl with about 2 TBS of the ricotta mixture. 
  • Serve hot. Stir the cheese mixture into the soup as you eat.
