8 cups


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion

  • 6 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 (28 ounce) can no-salt added crushed tomatoes

  • 4 cups water

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 6 ½ lasagna noodles (about 6 ounces), preferably whole-wheat, broken into 1 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

  • ¾ cup part-skim ricotta cheese

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost translucent, about 5 minutes. Push onions to one side of the pot and add sausage to the other side. Cook, breaking up the sausage into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, until the tomato paste is heated through, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, water, broth, sugar and salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Add lasagna noodles and stir to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is just cooked through but not completely soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar.

  2. Meanwhile, combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan in a small bowl; set aside.

  3. Ladle the soup into 6 bowls. Top each serving with a dollop of the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with basil.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
