Peel off onion & garlic & chop finely. Peel the carrots & celery from the soup vegetables & cut into cubes. Clean the leek, cut in half lengthways & cut into strips. Next, heat up a large pan or pot with a good dash of oil, add 500 grams of ground beef & fry over medium to high heat until crumbly for about 4 – 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Then add the prepared vegetables & fry for another 4 – 5 minutes, turning occasionally. When that’s done add 1 heaping tablespoon of tomato paste, stir in & briefly toast, then deglaze everything with 150 milliliters of red wine & allow the wine boil down almost completely while stirring.
Next, add 1.25 liters of vegetable or meat stock & 500 milliliters of sieved tomatoes, season everything with 1 heaping tablespoon of Italian herb mixture and a generous pinch of salt & pepper to taste & then break the lasagne sheets into pieces & add to the soup as well.
Briefly stir in the lasagna sheets so that all noodles are covered with sauce & then allow to simmer gently over low heat for 10 – 15 minutes until the pasta is cooked & the vegetables have reached the desired consistency, stirring every now and then.
Finally, add 1 cup of creme fraiche to the pan & stir into the soup, also add a handful of fresh basil leaves & then distribute the lasagna soup on plates & serve garnished with a little grated Parmesan cheese. Have fun cooking!
