I thought this recipes was incredible. I followed the recipe exactly, but then while I waited for the flavors to meld together I went through the comments and added what I thought would be delicious. I ended up adding salt, oregano, parsley, carrots, marjoram, and a bay leaf. I also let it simmer for a lot (20 minutes) longer than the recipe called for. I usually do this because it helps the flavors come out. I also added the zucchini before I put the ravioli in because I originally was going to blend the veggies to make more of a cream soup, but I ended up just eating it with veggies chunks. I really enjoyed eating it this way, but my husband said he would have rather of had it blended. I think if the soup had been creameded it would have resembled normal ravioili's and marinara sauce...thats really what the soup tasted like. Oh and I didn't think the red peppers added too much heat, if anything I will add more next time I make this. I will be making this again!
Ravioli & Vegetable Soup
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
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.

This was wonderful. Very tasty and healthy. Before I added the ravioli I blended the soup to make it a little creamier and to hide some of the veggies.
Another winner recipe. One big thing I'll change next time is using much smaller filled pasta(tortellini maybe) instead of larger ravioli. Instead of having 4 or 5 larger ravioli, I would have preferred to have some pasta in most bites. I also used fresh red pepper and onion since I don't like green pepper and it can out tasty. Used chicken broth since I had some ready to use.
This may be my favorite recipe from the site! I substituted fresh peppers/onion since I had them on hand and was amazed how well the dish came out. Very easy to prepare and the whole family enjoyed it.
This soup is yummy and incredibly filling! I think the next time I make it I'll cut the amount of red pepper in half... I'm a big fan of spicy foods, but my mouth is on fire by the time I finish a bowl of this soup! All in all, a definite keeper!
