Hi! I’m Ruthie from What’s Cooking with Ruthie where I love to talk about cooking, gardening, and whatever else happens to be Cookin’ around our house! I’m so happy to be here with all of you at I {heart} Nap Time today. I’m excited to share this delicious fall soup recipe with you! It’s just perfect for the cooler days that will soon be knocking at all of our doors…

 

Lasagna Soup tastes just like lasagna in a bowl… while my family was eating this savory soup they kept saying, “this is SO good! I can’t believe how good this is” which always makes me smile :)

 

Easy and delicious lasagna soup

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 3 C onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 7 C water
  • 6 chicken bouillon cubes (or in place of water and bouillon 7 C chicken stock)
  • 10 oz whole grain extra wide egg noodles
  • 1/2 C fresh basil leaves, finely sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cheesy Mixture
  • 1 C low fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 C shredded parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper

Instructions

  1. Soup Base: In a large stock pot, sprayed with cooking spray, over medium heat- add sausage, onions, and garlic. Stirring regularly to break up sausage. Brown 7-8 minutes until sausage is cooked and onions are transparent. Add oregano, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste stir well, continue cooking 3-4 minutes until the tomato paste turns a rusty brown color. Add diced tomatoes, bay leaves, water, and bouillon. Stir and bring to boil over high heat. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer for 30 minutes. Add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente. Do not over cook soup at this point. If you expect leftovers cook the noodles separate and add noodles to each bowl and then ladle broth on top. The noodles will soak up the broth when stored. Right before serving add in fresh basil, sea salt and pepper to taste and finish with a dollop of the cheese mixture. Enjoy!
  2. Cheese Mixture: In a small mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Keep refrigerated until serving. Add a dollop on top of each bowl of Lasagna Soup.

I’m sure you’ll all love this Lasagna Soup as much as we did! I love it when dinner only dirties 1 pot… which means extra fast clean up and that’s a BIG plus for me!
