SLOW COOKER LASAGNA SOUP

SLOW COOKER LASAGNA SOUP

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms, optional
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cans water
  • 1 cup rotini or other small pasta
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, for topping

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine sausage, onions, and carrots. Cook until the sausage has browned and the vegetables has softened, 5 to 7 minutes, breaking up any large pieces of sausage with a wooden spoon. Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Meanwhile, add diced tomatoes and their juice, tomato sauce, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, basil, fennel, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper to the slow cooker. Stir in water and sausage mixture.
  3. Cover and heat on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours. During the last 10 minutes of cooking time, stir in the pasta, cover, and continue to cook until softened. Serve with mozzarella cheese on the side.
