  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (1½ teaspoons)
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 (15-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground thyme
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 8 uncooked lasagna noodles, broken into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Ricotta cheese, for serving (optional)
How to Make It
  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it browns, for about 10 minutes. Pour off any extra grease from the pan and slowly stir in the chicken stock.
  2. Add the tomatoes with their juice, the tomato paste, oregano, thyme, and basil. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the lasagna noodles and cook until the noodles are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, then stir in the mozzarella and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with Parmesan, fresh basil, and ricotta, if desired.
