In a large pot or deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and brown the ground beef and Italian sausage. Drain any excess oil if necessary.
Set the meat aside, add a little more olive oil and fry the onion until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant.
Stir in the tomato paste, then pour in the marinara sauce and broth. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Add the broken lasagna noodles to the pan, along with the spinach and parsley. Stir and cook until the noodles are al dente.
If using the optional ricotta mixture, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, egg, parsley, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a bowl. Drop spoonfuls of this mixture into the soup, cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Alternatively, a drizzle of heavy cream can be used instead.
