Don’t be scared away by the long list of ingredients, they are mostly pantry staples. I find especially with soups that it is helpful to prep the ingredients before you get started, so you have everything you need ready to go.

I like this soup with Italian sausage, I think it gives the soup a great flavor. You can substitute chicken or turkey sausage or even shredded chicken. You can also use any shape of pasta that you like, but I really like how rustic the broken lasagna noodles are. Just make sure that you break them into pieces that are small enough to fit on a spoon…just trust me on that one.

  • 8 cups  low sodium chicken broth

  • 1 cup  half and half or milk
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 cup  grated Parmesan cheese
  • shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese - for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot, at least 4 quarts, over medium-high heat. Add sausage and sauté until cooked through. Remove the sausage to a plate and drain any excess fat.
  • In the same pot, heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Sprinkle with flour and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in 8 cups of chicken broth. Whisk 3 tablespoons cornstarch with the 1 cup water and add to soup. Stir in the sausage, seasonings, and lasagna noodles.
  • Bring soup to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cook until lasagna noodles are tender, stirring occasionally so noodles don’t stick to bottom (about 20 minutes).
  • Remove the bay leaf and stir in half and half and spinach and warm through about 5 minutes. Stir in grated Parmesan cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish servings with cheese.
