I got this recipe from Carl’s Bad Cravings:
1 lb lean ground beef
1 yellow onion diced
4-5 cloves of garlic minced (I used 2-3 tbsp garlic powder)
1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 jar Classico sauce (whatever kind you like)
8-10 cups low sodium chicken stock
1 (14 oz) can crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried oregano
1 whole bay leaf
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
10 uncooked lasagna noodles
1/2 cup heavy cream (This is optional & I did not use it)
Mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta whatever you like
In a pan brown meat and onions (you can do this in the big pot you will be using for the soup but I find it hard to drain off fat that way) . Add in garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for about 30 seconds. Drain off any fat.
Place meat in big pot (dutch oven). Pour 6 cups stock in pot along with the rest of the ingredients except the heavy cream. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer until the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally (took about 20 minutes).
Discard bay leaf and add in heavy cream if you like. Also add in any remaining chicken stock until you reach the desired consistency you want. Serve and garnish with cheese of choice.
I serve this with garlic buttered french bread.
