Ingredients:

  • Olive oil: 2 tablespoons
  • Ground beef/turkey/chicken: 1 pound
  • Onion, diced: 1 large
  • Garlic, minced: 4 cloves
  • Beef or chicken broth: 6 cups
  • Crushed tomatoes: 1 can (28 ounces)
  • Tomato paste: 2 tablespoons
  • Italian seasoning: 2 teaspoons
  • Salt and pepper: to taste
  • Lasagna noodles (or what you have available): 10-12, broken into pieces
  • Ricotta cheese: 1 cup
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded: 1 cup
  • Parmesan cheese, grated: ½ cup
  • Fresh parsley, chopped: for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Heat and Sauté: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned. Add the diced onion and garlic, sautéing until the onion is translucent.
  2. Simmer the Soup: Stir in the broth, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes to meld the flavors.
  3. Add Noodles: Add the broken lasagna noodles to the pot. Cook until the noodles are al dente, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  4. Prepare the Cheese Mixture: While the noodles are cooking, mix together the ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl.
  5. Assemble the Soup: Once the noodles are cooked, check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. (Add a scoop of sugar to bring out the tomato flavor.) To serve, ladle the hot soup into a bowl, and top with a spoonful of the cheese mixture in each bowl, .
  6. Garnish and Serve: Garnish with fresh parsley and extra Parmesan cheese if desired. Serve hot for a cozy, comforting meal.
