Lasagna Soup and Camera Issues

           I was making some delicious lasagna soup the other day, and got my camera to take pictures of it when I realized that the camera wasn't working! I thought it wasn't reading the card, but then I saw it was saying "Protected Card". I had no idea how to fix this at the time, so there is no current pictures of the lasagna soup :(. The camera is now fixed though, so the next time I make it, which will be soon, I will add them. 

Lasagna Soup

1 onion finely diced
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic finely minced
1lb. ground beef

2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
4 cups chicken (or vegetable or beef) stock
2 bay leaves
1 lb. tri-colored corkscrew pasta

shredded Mozzarella cheese


In a large Dutch oven, brown the ground beef. Drain and set the meat aside.
Heat the oil in the same pot at medium heat and saute onion until golden. Add garlic and warm through about 1 minute. Add your meat.
Add oregano, basil, spaghetti sauce, chicken stock and bay leaves. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
Add pasta and increase heat to bring to a boil and cook for recommended time on pasta box for "al dente".
Discard bay leaves and adjust seasonings by adding salt & pepper.
Serve with a sprinkling of shredded Mozzarella cheese.Enjoy!

       This was sooo good and super easy! Pops said it tasted just like lasagna, and Thing One loved it!
    If you eat it right away it has a "broth" and is more like a soup. We left it on the burner for a while on low, and it turned into a really yummy stew/pasta with sauce. This is definitely going in to our rotation of regular meals.

UPDATE: Here are the photos I promised!
