Lasagna Soup

I love when the weather gets cooler and it's soup time!  This wonderful soup is from Cuisine at Home.  I find that Cuisine's recipes are fairly quick and yet extremely flavorful.  If you're in the mood for lasagna, but don't want to spend the time waiting for it to bake, try this soup.  I think you'll love it!
It's so colorful and full of flavor!

1 lb. ground Italian sausage
2 cups onion, chopped
1 cup carrot, diced
2 cups button mushrooms, sliced (optional)
2 T. garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
1  (14.5 oz) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes
1 cup mafalda (mini lasagna) pasta or campenelle or bow ties
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
Parmesan cheese and sprigs of fresh basil


Brown sausage in a large saucepan over medium-heat heat.

Add onion and carrot; saute' 3 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms and garlic and saute' another 3 minutes.

Add broth and tomatoes; bring to a boil.

Stir in the pasta and simmer until cooked, about 10 minutes (or according to package directions).

Add the spinach and cook about 1 minute or until wilted.

To serve, place cubes of mozzarella in each serving bowl, then ladle soup over and let sit briefly to melt the cheese.

Garnish with grated Parmesan and a sprig  of basil.

Bon Apetito!!

  5. Hi Kitty!

    Your soup looks delicious and comforting. A nice loaf of rustic bread and your soup would be perfect for lunch or a light dinner! Light dinners means desert ;)

    I know that I could sure use some cool wet weather here... today will be 105 or more! I LOVE soup on a rainy day, It makes my house feel so cozy. Soup is nourishment for the soul.

    Rain, soup and a good movie or book. That is what is on my want list!
