Spinach Lasagna Soup

More Soup, num num num…

Why am I so obsessed with soups lately? Oh yeah, I know why. They are awesome! My third soup for this upcoming fall/winter season is a Spinach Lasagna Soup that I first saw in Pinterest. I didn’t pin it at the time so I found a few other blogs that had variations and I came up with this lovely masterpiece.

Spinach Lasagna Soup
Makes 6-8 cups  
1.5 cups per serving.

Ingredients
4 cups chicken broth
1 pound Italian turkey sausage (you can use ground turkey, ground beef, or reg. Italian sausage as a substitute.)
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves chopped garlic
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (for some spice)
15 ounces canned diced tomatoes
15 ounces canned tomato sauce
3 ounces bow tie pasta (or broken up lasagna noodles)
large handful or 2 of fresh spinach.  
Salt & pepper to taste
How to
Spray a large pot with cooking spray. Add onions and sausage (if you can only find sausage in the casing, just break the casing open and break up the meat in the pot) until fully cooked and browned. Add the garlic, spices, tomatoes, tomato sauce and broth and bring to a boil. Drop in the pasta and let cook until al dente (depends on what the packaging says). Stir in the spinach and let cook through for just a minute or two. Serve and savor!

Add a little parmesan or mozzarella cheese on top too if you like.

Again, I froze half of it for later.
