Lasagna soup

oh my; oh me, oh my. LOVED this! This is Paula Deens Recipe, with the motifications I made, for Lasagna Soup. Super good!

Lasagna Soup
1 pound ground beef (or Italian sausage for an extra kick)
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped (I left mine large, then removed when serving)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 (32-ounce) box chicken broth
2 (14.5-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups broken lasagna noodles
1 (5-ounce) package grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


In a large Dutch oven, combine ground beef, onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until beef is browned and crumbles. Drain well.

Stir in brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add noodles, and simmer until noodles are tender. Stir in Parmesan cheese.

Serve in bowls, and sprinkle with Mozzeralla cheese
