  4. Drain the fat.
  5. Stir in the garlic, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Stir in the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and all the seasonings and sugar.
  7. Bring to a boil.

  9. Ladle in bowls, top with ricotta cheese mix, and fresh parsley.

Recipe Notes

*I used dried spices, unless otherwise noted.
**Look for the tubes at your grocery store. So much easier to work with when only needing a couple of tablespoons.
