You don’t have to be Italian to fall in love with this fabulous soup. It is much easier and faster to make than a pan of lasagna, while filling the body with deliciously warm soup. The flavor is incredible. Trust me, make this soup!
1. In a large pot, brown sausage over medium heat, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks. Cook until well done, about 8 minutes. Add onions and garlic and cook for 5 minutes.
2. Add Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, chicken stock, marinara and tomato sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Bring to low boil and cook for 30 minutes.
3. Add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 to 15 minutes. Do not overcook as the pasta will begin to fall apart.
4. While pasta is cooking, prepare the cheese topping in a medium-sized bowl. Mix the ricotta with the shredded cheeses.
To serve, pour soup into bowls and add at least 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture to each bowl. Serve immediately.
Mafalda pasta can be used in place of bowtie, if you can find it!
If soup broth gets too thick after cooking the pasta, add more chicken broth, or marinara or tomato sauce. Doing so will not compromise the flavors.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
