All the flavors of lasagne packed into a bowl of delicious, cheesy goodness.
Heat large pot over medium-high heat. Put 3 T. extra virgin olive oil in bottom of pot. Add vegetables and garlic. Sprinkle oregano, red chile flakes, and 1/2 tsp. salt over the top. Mix around with a wooden spoon until soft and slightly brown, around 5-7 minutes.
Add sausage without their casings. Break up with a wooden spoon until no pink remains, about 5-7 minutes.
Add tomato paste. Mix around with a wooden spoon until slightly darkened, around 2 minutes.
Add tomatoes, chicken stock, and bay leaves. Mix and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer with lid partly on/off for 25-30 minutes.
Add pasta and cook for 6-8 additional minutes.
Just before serving, add parsley and basil. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve immediately in individual bowls, piled high with cheese and more parsley and basil.
