A New Recipe for me and for you….

6 Nov

This is what I am going to try this weekend… I’ve not made it before so we can try it together!  I got the idea from the woman in line in front of me at Target.  I overheard her tell the cashier that she was making LASAGNA SOUP and I thought, now that sounds fantastic!  I googled it and chose the recipe I thought looked both tasty and easy… I altered it a bit, by adding things I love in lasagna…  Here is what I found:

Lasagna Soup

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground italian sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 (32-ounce) box beef or chicken broth
  • 3 (14.5-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mini lasagna noodles
  • 1 (5-ounce) package grated Parmesan
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

In a large Dutch oven, combine ground beef, sausage onion, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until meat is browned and crumbles. Drain well.

Stir in brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add noodles, and simmer until noodles are tender. Stir in Parmesan cheese.

Preheat broiler. Ladle soup into 8 to 10 ovenproof bowls. Evenly sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Broil soups, 6-inches from heat, 3 to 4 minutes, until cheese is browned and bubbly…  Serve with Garlic Bread and enjoy!

    I am commenting because I had an idea… What if you used three cheese tortellini instead of mini lasagna noodles??? Then it would really be lasagna-ee… Just a thought! I’ll try it that way next time!

    Just curious, how did it turn out? It sounds amazing!

      It was pretty good… I think I used too many noodles, but I also added a few more than the recipe called for because it seemed like so few to me…
