Tastes Like Lasagna Soup

This recipe comes from Paula Deen.  As you know by now, I love my soups! This one has got to be the best soup on the planet! I changed it up a little bit from her recipe, to make it even better for us.  Mmm, I love this soup. The best part, is that it tastes just like lasagna. It's amazing!

1   onion, chopped
3   cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1   (32 ounce) box chicken broth
2   (14.5 ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes
2   (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups broken lasagna noodles
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large stock pot, combine ground beef, onion, and garlic. Cook until browned. Stirring occasionally. Drain well. 

Stir in thyme, brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add noodles, and simmer until noodles are tender. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Top with mozzarella and serve immediately.
