Fresh or frozen ravioli cook in minutes and turn this light vegetable soup into a main course. Look for whole-wheat or whole-grain ravioli in the refrigerated or frozen section of the supermarket. Tortellini can be used instead of ravioli as well. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell.

This soup had a really nice flavor. All the ingredients go really well together, family loved it and so did I. Very filling so I snacked less at night. Great for leftovers too. I followed the recipe to the letter and it came out great.

Really enjoyed this soup, Used the veggies I had - carrot celery onion and squash. Used chicken broth. Found whole wheat cheese pasta at Costco - topped with some Parmesan - family loved it.

I love this soup. have made it several times and just add more seasoning and put the zucchini in before the ravioli. It lets the vegetables cook more and the ravioli only takes a minute or two.

This was really good. I used frozen broccoli instead of zucchini and tortellini instead of ravioli because they are what I had. Just for personal preference, next time I'll use the petite diced tomatoes instead of the larger chunks. I also add my pepper right before consuming it (again, personal preference). I made this on a Sunday night and portioned it out for lunches for the week. Three days later and it's still holding up well!

I also added a little cayenne because I want everything a little spicy but delicious and so easy!

This was so easy and really yummy! I used spinach and cheese ravioli and didn’t change the recipe. I thought it needed a little added salt and I think next time I will add more red pepper flakes too. It will be even better leftover. Very fast and easy for busy weeknight.

I made this delicious dish yesterday, I used chopped green peppers only, chopped onions,2 garlic cloves and i chopped my zucchini and sauteed it all together, i used diced tomatoes in a can instead of crush tomatoes, i used chicken broth and then i added my frozen raviolis, basil and crush pepper which gave it a twist! I thought maybe i wouldve had left overs lol but my family enjoyed it to the last bit.
