Lasagna Soup

Want to make your house smell like Italian heaven? Make this soup. It is incredible. Another recipe compliments of Pinterest strikes again. If you can't tell, I am a huge Pinterest fan. I will include the link to the original recipe. I usually don't follow the measurements as closely. And yes, the recipe includes a "cheesy yum."

Lasagna Soup

1 1/2 lbs Italian sausage
3 cups diced onion
4 minced garlic cloves
Oregano and crushed red pepper flakes to taste
2 Tbsp tomato paste
28 oz fire-roasted tomatoes
6 cups chicken broth
1 lb pasta (I used fusilli)
Basil, salt, and pepper to taste

for the cheesy yum:
8 oz ricotta
1/2 cup parmesan
salt and pepper to taste

2 cups Mozz cheese

Brown the sausage. I used 2 lbs because I didn't feel like have a 1/2 lb of sausage left over. Once sausage is done, add in onions. Cook until onions are tender. Add in garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Add tomato paste and stir until combined. In a large pot, combine tomatoes, chicken broth, and meat mixture. Add basil, salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Add pasta and cook until pasta is done. Don't cook too long..the pasta will get mushy. While the pasta is cooking, make the cheesy yum. Combine the cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl.

In soup bowls, put a dollop of cheesy yum. Top with mozz cheese and ladle soup over top. Enjoy!
