Lasagna Soup

My back-fence neighbor Cherie is a wonderful cook.  Several years ago I borrowed her personal recipe file and copied all of it!  She put this recipe in our ward cookbook several years ago.  The word spread right away that this was one of the recipes everyone HAD to try.  It is a great fall soup that isn't your typical soup.  I love it!  Give it a try.

Lasagna Soup
Cherie Peterson

1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 28oz can Italian style diced tomatoes (use petite diced if you want smaller chunks)
Crushed red pepper flakes, optional
1 beef bouillon cube (or 1 tsp)
3 chicken bouillon cubes (or 3 tsp)
4 c water
 1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
5 lasagna noodles, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan Cheese, shredded
Cottage Cheese

Brown ground beef, onion and garlic.  Drain fat.  Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, bouillon cubes, water and seasonings.  Heat to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes.  Add lasagna noodles and heat through.  Serve hot with a dollop of cottage cheese and sprinkle with Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. 
(I threw in a little fresh basil from my garden as a garnish)
