Tastes Like Lasagna Soup

Tastes Like Lasagna Soup

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 (32 ounce) box chicken broth or 4 cups
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups radiadori or radiatore pasta, uncooked ( or any other shaped pasta will do) (I use gluten free)
  • heaping 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • garlic croutons, optional

In a large Dutch oven, combine ground beef, onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until beef is browned and crumbles. Drain well.

Stir in thyme, brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. In the meantime, cook pasta according to package directions in a separate pan. Drain.

Add cooked pasta to soup and stir in Parmesan cheese.

Top each bowl of soup with shredded mozzarella soup and croutons, if desired.
