  1. Ingredients

  2. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  3. 1 pound Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
  4. 1 onion, chopped
  5. 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  6. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  7. 1 (32-ounce) container chicken broth
  8. 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  9. 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
  10. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  11. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  12. 4 ounces broken whole-wheat lasagna noodles (about 4 noodles)
  13. 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  14. 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  15. 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  16. 8 Whole-wheat breadsticks or grissini (optional)
  17. Directions

  18. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick saucepot or Dutch oven. Add the sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is crumbled and browned, 8 – 10 minutes.

  19. Add the broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes. Add the noodles; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the soup thickens slightly and the noodles are tender, 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in mozzarella, basil, and the Parmesan. Serve with the breadsticks, if using. (whole-wheat lasagna noodles take a little longer to cook.)
