Tastes like Lasagna Soup

Shortly after I joined Pinterest, I kept stumbling upon Paula Deen’s recipe for lasagna soup.  That seemed like a sign that I should make it.  And it’s good.  But don’t be misled.  It tastes like Lasagna SOUP.  It doesn’t taste like lasagna.  And that’s fine.  Turns out, I like lasagna flavored soup.

You need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 (32-ounce) box chicken broth
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups large shell pasta
  • 1 (5-ounce) package grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

In your large soup pot, combine ground beef, garlic, and Italian seasoning.  Cook over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until beef is browned and crumbles.  (I had a picture of this, but it basically just a shot of the steam over the beef, and you know what this part is supposed to look like.)

Stir in brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and salt.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Add noodles, and simmer until noodles are tender (about 15 minutes).

Add parmesan.

Preheat broiler.  Ladle soup into 8 to 10 ovenproof bowls.  Evenly sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  Broil soups, 6-inches from heat, 3 to 4 minutes, until cheese is browned and bubbly!
