Lasagna Soup

I need an excuse sometimes.  It doesn’t have to be a great excuse, just an excuse to do the things I want to do.

For instance, tonight, I want to put a whopping dollop of ricotta cheese in my soup and have no one question me about it.

I didn’t say it was an excuse to behave recklessly or be a brat,  I just said I needed an excuse.

And you reading this is my validation.  So thanks for that.

IMG_4254But seriously, tonight’s soup is really healthy, if you don’t count that whopping dollop of ricotta.  And even then, it’s not sour cream people.  Pick your battles.

Instructions:

Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Add oregano, red pepper flakes and tomato paste, cook for 2 minutes. Salt and pepper well. Add diced tomatoes and chicken broth and bring to a simmer for 30 minutes. Add the pasta about 15-20 minutes before serving. Mix the cheeses and salt & pepper together in a small serving bowl. Put a heaping spoonful of the cheese mixture into the soup and top with basil.
