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