Sooooo I copied this from one of my favorite blogs...http://serendipitybistro.blogspot.com/...I saw this and had to try it. I really like Rachael Ray recipes, and it seems that is where this recipe originated. It was really good. We had garlic bread and Caesar salad with it!
2 tbsp olive oil
1# ground chuck
Salt & pepper
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled & grated
3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
One 32-ounce container (4 cups) chicken broth-I used only about 3 cups...
One 28-ounce can Italian crushed tomatoes
1 pound lasagna noodles, broken into jagged pieces-I only used a half pound of noodles
1 c basil leaves, torn
1 c whole-milk ricotta
Grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese, to pass around the table
In a soup pot, heat the EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the beef, season with salt & pepper & cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the onion, carrots & garlic and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in 2 cups water (I used 1), the chicken broth & tomatoes; cover and bring to a boil. Add the pasta & cook until al dente about 15 minutes. Stir in the basil & season with salt & pepper. Serve the stoup in bowls & dollop with the ricotta. Pass the parmigiano-reggiano at the table. Enjoy!
The whole meal! Notice the large amount of cheese....:)
