Things You'll Need
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp sea salt, to taste
1 lb lean ground beef
2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
6 lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 cups grated mozarella cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
Fresh oregano and basil for serving, optional
Add the oil to a large stock pot and heat over medium. Add the chopped onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes.
Add the garlic, all of the dried herbs and the salt. Continue sautéing and stirring until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
Push the onion and garlic off to one side of the stock pot and add the ground beef. Allow it to sear on both sides for 2 minutes each before breaking it into smaller chunks and stirring.
Add the two cans of diced tomatoes and stir well.
Next, add the chicken broth and the tomato paste and stir well. Cover and bring soup to a full boil.
Break the lasagna noodles into smaller bite-sized portions, about 2 inches long each. Add the lasagna noodles to the pot of soup and stir well. Bring the soup back to a gentle boil and cook, stirring occasionally until noodles are cooked through, about 8 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the grated mozzarella, ricotta and parmesan cheese until well combined. Scoop heaping portions of lasagna soup into bowls and add desired amount of cheese mixture on top. Either serve soup immediately, or place bowls on a large baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350° F for 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese has melted. If desired, garnish with fresh oregano and basil.
