  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 lbs Italian sausage casings removed
  • 3 cups chopped onions about 1 large yellow onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic cloves minced
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 14.5 oz cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 12 oz radiatore pasta or any other pasta will work just fine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh herbs parsley, oregano, basil... for topping
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella for topping

Herbed Ricotta

  • 8 oz ricotta
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the sausage. Crumble the sausage and cook for 5 minutes. Add the onions and cook until the onions are softened and translucent and the sausage is cooked and no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes. Drain excess fat and grease. 
  • Add the garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste to the sausage. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the tomato paste turns a rusty color. 
  • Add the fire roasted diced tomatoes and chicken stock. Stir to combine. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. 
  • Add the pasta to the pot and cook until al dente. *
  • Ladle the soup into individual bowls and garnish with fresh basil, shredded mozzarella, and herbed ricotta

Herbed Ricotta

  • Combine the ricotta, parmesan, salt, oregano, and basil in a small bowl. Stir to combine. 


*Even cook the pasta slightly under al dente. 
If you foresee having leftovers, I suggest cooking the pasta on the side and then adding the pasta to individual bowls. The pasta will soften as it sits in the lasagna soup. 
**Note, this becomes less soupy as it sits, due to the pasta soaking up the juices.
