Simple Lasagna Soup

(I used Farfalle pasta for this batch.)

Makes 10-12 servings

2lbs ground beef
½ tsp garlic powder
7 c Beef broth (w/onion if available)
2 cans (14.5oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cans (6oz) tomato paste
1½ tsp dried Italian seasoning
3c uncooked mafalda or rotini pasta
½ c grated Parmesan cheese

Brown ground beef with garlic powder and drain off fat. Stir in broth, tomatoes, tomato paste and Italian seasoning. Heat to a boil. Stir in the pasta. Reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir for 10 minutes until pasta is tender but firm (al dente). Stir in the cheese. Serve with additional cheese, if desired.

(Can use ground turkey and skip the cheese for a low-fat version.)
