Suzy is loving this Lasagna Soup from SkinnyTaste.com for the cold months ahead. It's simple to make and absolutely delicious.
For the soup:
14 oz sweet Italian chicken sausage, casing removed
1/2 onion, chopped
2 crushed cloves garlic
4 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, divided
3 cups low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth*
2 1/2 cups water
2 cups quick marinara sauce (recipe here)
2 bay leaves
fresh cracked black pepper
6 oz broken lasagna noodles, whole wheat or gluten free*
6 tbsp part skim shredded mozzarella cheese*
1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh basil chiffonade
*check labels for gluten free
Heat a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, spray with oil and add the sausage; cook until browned, breaking it up as it cooks with a wooden spoon about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the chopped onion and crushed garlic and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add the parsley, broth, water, marinara sauce, bay leaves and fresh black pepper and bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes.
In a medium bowl combine the ricotta, parmesan, and 2 tbsp parsley and mix.
Add the broken pasta and cook uncovered according to package directions. Divide between 6 bowls and top each with 2 tbsp ricotta cheese mixture, mozzarella, fresh cracked pepper and fresh basil on top. Makes about 8 cups.
