Ingredients for this fast and easy one-pot lasagna soup

These are what we need for the soup:

2 Tsp Olive oil

1 1/2 lb Italian sausage

2-3 Cups chopped onions

4 Garlic cloves, minced

2 Tsp dried oregano

1/2 Tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 Tbsp tomato paste

1 (28 OZ) Can Italian style diced tomatoes (you can use any type of diced tomatoes)

2 Bay leaves

8 Cups chicken stock

8 Oz Fusilli pasta or any curly pasta ( Preferably cooked separately)

1/2 Cup of dried basil leaves or finely chopped fresh basil leaves 

Better than bouillon chicken base (Optional)

Salt and ground black pepper to taste 

These are what we need for the cheesy yum:

8 Oz ricotta (You can substitute it with cottage cheese)

1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese ( reserve 1/2 cup)

1/4 Tsp salt

Pinch of ground black pepper

Cooking instructions

1- First, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Then add the ground beef or the sausage, breaking up into bite-sized pieces, and brown for about 5 minutes. 

2- Second, add the onions and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Then add the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes—Cook for 1 minute. Now, add the tomato paste and stir well to incorporate—Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the tomato paste turns a rusty brown color.

3- Third, add the diced tomatoes and bay leaves. Pour in the chicken stock, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add about 1 Tbsp of chicken bouillon.  

The best ways to add the pasta into the soup

You have two choices on how to cook the pasta:

1- First choice, add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente. Do not overcook or let the soup simmer for an extended time at this point, as the pasta will get mushy and absorb all the soup broth.

2- Second choice, cook the pasta separately. (That is what I always do) But cook it al dente or even undercooked.  This will be a genius move if you are anticipating any leftovers.

Add the cooked pasta and dried basil when you are about to serve the soup—Cook for about one minute and season with black pepper and salt. Be careful with the salt if you add some chicken bouillon.

How to make the cheesy yum

 

While the pasta is cooking, prepare the cheesy yum. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, parmesan, salt, and pepper. To serve, place a dollop of the cheesy yum in each soup bowl, sprinkle some of the reserved mozzarellas on top and ladle the hot soup over the cheese. 

Enjoy!

  • 3 Cup Onions Chopped
  • 4 Garlic cloves Minced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tsp Dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato paste
  • 1 28 Oz Can Italian style roasted diced tomatoes Or any canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 6 Cups Chicken stock
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh basil leaves Finely chopped. You can use dried basil leaves.
  • 1 Tbsp Chicken bouillon Optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 Oz Grated parmesan cheese

For the cheesy yum

  • 2 Cups Shredded mozzarella cheese Divided. 1 Cup for the the cheesy yum, 1 Cup for sprinkling on top of the food.
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • 1- First, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Then add the ground beef or the sausage, breaking up into bite-sized pieces, and brown for about 5 minutes. 
    2- Second, add the onions and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Then add the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes—Cook for 1 minute. Now, add the tomato paste and stir well to incorporate—Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the tomato paste turns a rusty brown color.
    3- Third, add the diced tomatoes and bay leaves. Pour in the chicken stock. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add about 1 Tbsp of chicken bouillon.  Add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente. Do not overcook or let the soup simmer for an extended time at this point, as the pasta will get mushy and absorb all the soup broth. You may even want to consider cooking the noodles separately (that is what I always do) and then adding some to individual bowls before ladling the soup over them. This will be a genius move if you are anticipating any leftovers. You can also cook the pasta separately but undercook them; then, add the pasta and dried basil when you are about to serve the soup—Cook for about one minute and season with black pepper and salt. Be careful with the salt if you add some chicken bouillon. 
    For the cheesy yum:
    While the pasta is cooking, prepare the cheesy yum. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, parmesan, salt, and pepper. To serve, place a dollop of the cheesy yum in each soup bowl, sprinkle some of the reserved mozzarellas on top and ladle the hot soup over the cheese.

Notes

  • Cook the noodles separately to not get overcooked, turn mushy, and absorb all the soup broth. It will also be beneficial if you are anticipating any leftovers. 
  • You can use any of your preferred meat to make lasagne soup, but ground sausage is the most popular. 
  • Fresh basil or dried basil leaves both works for this recipe. But if you have fresh basil leaves, feel free to use them.
  • Any can of diced tomatoes will work for this recipe but for the best result, use fire-roasted diced tomatoes or Italian-style diced tomatoes, which is my favorite to use. 
  • Use some chicken bouillon to elevate the flavor of the chicken stock. It will really make the broth taste so good.
  • The soup will taste the best when it is warm, and the leftover even tastes better. 
  • Make it as cheesy as you want. 
  • Be careful with the use of salt if you use chicken bouillon because it can get too salty.
