One Pot Lasagna Soup

Here is another one pot recipe!,,,I am just loving these!!,,,,,I guess you could call this deconstructed lasagna!,,,,,I used elbow macaroni for this but you can use other pastas too,,,I think Rotini or Ziti would be nice, also I used Italian sausage with fennel but you could use plain or even use ground beef if you like!,,,And the Ricotta mixture you add to the bottom of each bowl, then another dollup on top makes this extra yummy!!,,,Here is what I did,,,Enjoy!!

5 links Italian sausage (removed from casing)
1 medium onion (diced)
2 Tablespoons tomato paste (I use it from the tube)
2-3 cloves garlic (minced)
2 teaspoons dry oregano
2 teaspoons dry basil (you could also use fresh chopped)
pinch red pepper flakes
2 bay leaves
4 Cups chicken broth
2- 14 1/2 ounce cans petite diced tomatoes
2 Cups Elbow Macaroni
salt and pepper to taste
Ricotta Mixture for garnish
1 1/2 Cups Ricotta
1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan
Remove sausage from casing and add to a dutch oven or large pot with a lid
add diced onion and brown sausage until it is no longer pink
Once sausage is cooked add the tomato paste and garlic,,,,then add the rest of the ingredients....give it a stir then bring to boil uncovered,,,,,,Once it comes to a boil, turn to simmer and cover.
Stirring every 5 minutes or so continue to cook until pasta is cooked about 12- 15 minutes
Add a spoonful of the ricotta mixture to each bowl ladle soup over it and then add another dollup of the mixture on top and Enjoy!
