i've made this twice now, and love it! i used tortellini instead of the ravioli, but followed the recipe pretty much as written. good flavor! will definately be making 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.

I omitted the hot pepper as my partner is not fond of spicy foods. I also used about 900mL/30oz of veg broth, as it cooked down quite a bit. We elected to use three-cheese ravioli this time, I'm sure it would be good with meat ravioli as well. Good recipe overall!
I love this recipe, but like many other commenters I changed it quite a bit. The first thing to go was the crushed red pepper. I used it the first time I made it and it was too, too spicy. (I'm a wimp when it comes to spicy foods.) I also left the onions out (personal preference) and added carrots and squash. I think it would work well with any vegetables you prefer, and I chopped everything up fresh rather than relying on frozen ones.
I've made this a couple of times and we think it is very good. Last night I decided to make it and didn't have crushed tomatoes on hand. I opened a bottle of Prego spahetti sauce, added some sauted garlic and basil to our taste then followed the rest of the recipe. Turned out that our "in the pinch" substitution was wonderful. I noticed a comment from someone about the acid from the tomatoes. A small amount of sugar added to the broth helps. I start with 1/4 tsp. and only add more as needed.
I omitted the hot pepper, used canned italian plum tomatoes, that I chopped myself, dried basil and oregano, used fresh onion and red bell pepper, which I also sauted with 2 fresh carrots, and 1 celery stalk, and added a drained & rinsed can of cannellini beans, for some added protein...Perfecto!
