Cheesey Spinach Lasagna Soup-adapted from What a Crock
1 lb itlalian sausage
1 onion, diced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 10 oz box frozen spinach, thawed, drained
1 qt chicken broth
1 pkg frozen cheese tortellini or 1 cup mini pasta
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil
8 oz mozzerella, diced(optional)
Brown and crumble sausage. Remove from pan and drain. Leave some oil from sausage in the pan and saute onion and garlic. Add in tomatoes, tomato sauce, and broth. Stir in seasonings. Bring to a boil. Add in pasta if using it and cook until al dente. OR cook tortellini separately and add to the soup.
Mix in spinach and cheese if using. Top with parmesan cheese.
**This was really good! I know the other lasagna soup I have was more of a tomato base where this did have some tomato in it that wasn't all that it was! Perfect for a fall day...or summer day!
