Lasagna Soup

My cravings for soup start up right around the time of the first frost. There is something so comforting about the smell of soup simmering on the stove on a cold fall day. We had our first freeze last week and I couldn't wait to make some soup. I made our kids' favorite, Lasagna Soup. I use the term "soup" lightly. The way I make it, it turns out a little more like a stew. A friend introduced me to this soup years ago, and I love that it is one of those that is hard to mess up!

What you will need:
1 jar (24 oz) spaghetti sauce
1 large can (28 oz) diced tomatoes
1 cup water
2 tsp itallian seasoning
2 medium size zucchini squash cut into 4ths (I use one green and one yellow)
3/4 cup uncooked noodles - I used bowtie noodles this time, but love using broken lasagna noodles
salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup diced yellow or white onion
1 lb itallian sausage - pork sausage tastes best, but I usually use turkey sausage to keep it a little lighter.

- Combine spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes,  and water into large pot. 
- Add the italian seasoning, squash, and uncooked noodles.
- Bring pot to a boil for 1 minute, then reduce to simmer.
- Cook sausage and onion in large pan. Drain grease.
- Add cooked sausage and onion to soup pot.
- Reduce heat to low.

Depending how soupish vs stewish you want your soup, you may need to add a little more water to your soup prior to serving. I like to garnish with mozzarella cheese. Yum!! Now I want to go eat some of my leftovers in the fridge ;)

What is your favorite soup to make in the fall?
