Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • ½ medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 stalk celery sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 piece bay leaf
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 pieces uncooked lasagna noodles broken into random pieces
  • 2 tablespoon ricotta to serve
  • 2 tablespoon parmesan cheese to serve
  • Fresh basil to garnish

Instructions

  • Heat a heavy bottom pot; add oil followed by ground chicken, break it up the chicken and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion, celery and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes until the onion softens.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, bay leaf, oregano, Italian seasonings, rosemary, thyme, basil, black pepper and salt. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add the lasagna noodles; cover and cook the soup for 12-15 minutes until the pasta is cooked through on a medium flame.
  • Once done, serve the lasagna soup in a bowl topped with a spoonful of ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese and garnished with fresh basil.

Notes

  • Fully cook the ground meat until it is no longer pink. 
  • Swap the ground chicken for your favorite ground meat. 
  • Add more vegetables such as carrots, bell peppers, spinach or kale. 
  • Do you like your food a little spicy? Add red pepper flakes for a bit of spice. 
  • Break the noodles into bite-sized pieces before stirring them into the broth. 
  • Use your favorite pasta in place of the lasagna noodles. 
  • If you prefer a thinner soup, add additional water or broth. 
  • The leftover soup will absorb a lot of liquid as it sits. Add additional water or broth when reheating to reach the desired texture.
