Servings: 8
Calories: 283kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Lasagna broken pieces
  • 1 jar Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 450 grams Ground Beef or meat substitute
  • 1 Yellow Onion diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic Crushed
  • 8 cups Chicken Broth reduced salt if store bought
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Pepper
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Fresh Basil to taste

Instructions

To prepare on stove-top: 

  • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, pour in some oil and sauté the onions for a few minutes (until they’re becoming translucent), then add the ground meat. Once the meat is well cooked, add the garlic and spices. Mix well and cook until fragrant.  
  • Break up your lasagna noodles into pieces.
  • Add tomato sauce, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and noodles. If vegetarian, add meat substitute now. Use medium-high heat to bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low-medium to simmer until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, add cheese mix.
  • Serve in a bowl and add grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil to your heart’s content.

To prepare in slow cooker: 

  • Follow steps 1 & 2 as outlined in stove-top instructions.
  • Add tomato sauce, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and sugar. If vegetarian, add meat substitute now. If set to high, cook for 4 hours. If set to low, cook for 8 hours.
  • 30 minutes before the soup is ready, add broken noodles and top with cheese mixture.
  • Serve in a bowl and add grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil to your heart’s content.

Notes

Remember: if you plan on freezing this dish omit the pasta noodles. Instead, cook the soup without noodles, freeze it, and then when you’re ready to eat it, thaw the soup, cook the noodles, mix the soup and noodles together, and serve immediately.
