lasagna soup

This soup will confuse you for days...looking just like any other normal tomato-based soup this one actually tastes exactly like LASAGNA! What?! Truth. Try it, you'll see.

Ingredients (for 6 servings based on this recipe):

1 1/2 lb spicy chicken sausage
3 onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbs dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
4 tsp tomato paste
1 28oz can diced tomatoes with garlic

4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
1 lb fusilli pasta
2 tbs chopped fresh basil
Salt & pepper to taste
8 oz ricotta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 

1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and sausages. Stir and cook until browned, about 8 minutes, chopping sausage with the spoon as they soften.

2. Add minced garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Stir to coat, cook another 2 minutes.

3. Add tomato paste and stir to thoroughly coat. Cook for another 4 minutes.

4. Add diced & crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, chicken stock, and water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for another 30 minutes.
