Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook hot and mild sausage, stirring to break up into pieces, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onions; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir tomato paste into the paste. Fill tomato paste can with water and pour in; mix well. Pour in beef broth, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, and wine. Stir in basil sprigs, salt, and pepper. Bring soup to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until flavors combine, at least 30 minutes.

  • Mix ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  • Divide pasta among serving bowls; spoon some of the ricotta cheese mixture on top. Ladle soup over cheese mixture.

Cook's Notes:

Use fresh or frozen basil, not dried. Substitute 3 bay leaves if you prefer. Discard before serving.

I never cook the pasta in the soup! It gets mushy quickly, doesn't freeze well, and soaks up all the soup broth.

I make this soup frequently, however, I omit the pasta as called for and add fresh tortellini (Butoni ) just until it cooks at the end for a few minute- if you add it too soon - the tortellini will disintegrate. But it makes for a heartier soup Read More

I halved the recipe because I only had 1 lb sausage. The soup definitely needs more seasoning I added basil onion powder and garlic powder I also added 1 tbsp of brown sugar as it tasted very tinny from the tomato paste. I had half a green pepper to use up so I added that in I think mushrooms zucchini and baby spinach would be nice additions as well. I used vegetable broth for the beef and added about 1 extra cup of water after I added the pasta to make it soupier. I used whole wheat penne pasta because that is what I had. I added the pasta to the soup and heated through then served. The cheese mixture was very dry so I added some milk to it to make it scoopable I aslo added oregano basil and minced garlic to it. My son and his friends enjoyed the soup especially the cheesy part. I made this for Allrecipes Allstars Canada April Challenge #ARFaceless Read More

It was just okay. It needed more seasonings for flavor in my opinion and husband agreed. I might make it again, but will change up the seasoning for sure. Read More

Being lazy I did not follow the suggestions to cook the pasta separately. Indeed it became a big vat of pasta rather than soup the next day. But it is yummy! Don t be afraid to add a little more meat. I will make again and even follow the directions. Read More

Love the cheese of the recipe a smidge too hot with the red pepper and hot sausage. Added green pepper with the onion. Added more basil. Really a keeper! Read More

Followed recipe exactly. Loved the bow tie pasta in the bottom of the bowl with a spoonful of the ricotta, Parmesan, and mozzarella cheese mixture on top. Then ladling the soup over the pasta and cheese was perfect. Nice blend of flavors and a step up from a regular bowl of soup. This will be one of our favorites! Read More
