Lasagne Soup


Lasagna Soup
When I lived up in Northern California, I had a wonderful friend named Deb. Deb loved to cook. We were like two peas in a pod! She used to have a fun girls night over at her house where we would drink wine, make huge pots of a few different soups, have dinner then  package up and divide the soups between all the girls to take home and freeze.  This was one of my favorite soups that we used to make.

My whole family loves this soup. It’s a rich tomato based soup enhanced with red wine. It’s loaded with Italian sausage, pasta, mushroom and spinach. It’s served hot then chunks of Provolone and a sprinkle of Parmesan and basil. Doesn’t that sound like a whole lot of YUM!!!

    In a large Dutch oven brown sausage over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot: saute 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and garlic , and saute another 3 minutes.

    Add Chicken broth, wine, tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes and pinch of sugar to Dutch oven. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.

    Add pasta and continue to simmer until pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes. Add spinach and cook just until spinach is wilted.

    In individual soup bowl's add desired amount of Provolone or Mozzarella cheese cubes.  Add hot soup to bowls. Top with Parmesan and basil. Serve :)

      i miss our soup nights and this is one of my favs too. the only thing i do different is half pound hot italian sausage and half pound ground beef.

      don’t forget if you want to double the batch to freeze some take out the portion you wish to freeze before adding the pasta. when you get ready to use the frozen portion bring you add the pasta and cook it until tender!

      I have made a version of this and it is so perfect for someone eating alone. The great flavors of lasagna without making a whole pan of it.

      turning lasagna into soup is a perfect way for someone like me who eats alone to get that flavor, without making a huge amount!

        I think you’re totally right! My girlfriend Deb would make large batches of this omitting the pasta and cheese and freeze it in small serving size portions. Then defrost it when she wanted it and added the pasta and cooked until the pasta was done. Then added the cheese. I think that’s brilliant :)
