Lasagna Soup #SundaySupper
 
 
A simple and fairly quick recipe to make Lasagna Soup.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (I didn't have fresh so I used minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 box (32 oz) of beef broth, or mix 4 cups boiling water with 1 to 2 tablespoons of better than bouillon beef base (I used the better than bouillon)
  • 1 (28 fl oz) can of whole peeled tomatoes (san Marzano), pulsed in blender
  • 1 (1 lb 8 oz) jar of pasta sauce ( I used Ragu Sauteed Onion & Garlic)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups broken lasagna noodles
  • 1 (5 oz) package of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella (the new pizza mozzarella is the bomb)
Instructions
  1. Brown your ground beef, onion, and pepper in a large dutch oven. It should be broken into fine particles and cooked till juices run clear.
  2. In the last minute or two add the garlic.
  3. Now add your brown sugar, tomatoes, sauce, oregano, basil and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add the noodles and simmer until they are tender. Stir in parmesan.
  5. Turn on your broiler.
  6. Transfer soup into ovenproof soup bowls.Top with oodles of cheese. Place in oven and broil for 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with a big old I love pasta smile!
