I am totally going back to buy the frozen ginger. How often do you buy fresh ginger for a recipe, to only throw away the rest. Now you can have these flavors in convenient little cubes to use at your leisure.
This soup recipe is a simple weeknight meal that the kids will go crazy for. You can choose either turkey, pork or even vegetarian Italian sausage as your protein.
Just pop in your basil cubes at the end and allow them to slowly defrost into your soup.
Once the soup is finished, add a generous dollop of the ricotta mixture. It will slowly melt into your lasagna soup so we kept more on hand.
Since I made this a few hours before dinner, I did not add the pasta to the soup. I boiled water in a separate pot and then added them to each bowl and ladled the warm soup on top.
