I made this while the cable guy was out installing my cable. It was ready right before he left, so it's really quick & easy. I also made a special trip to the store to buy all of the ingredients and it cost me around $13, for four servings. Again, it could use some spice and seasoning, but it was good.
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 recipe is a tasty way to force myself to eat lots of veggies! In addition to what the recipe called for, I added carrots, celery, yellow squash, and a can of chickpeas. In an unfortunate stroke of bad luck, my grocery store was out of whole wheat ravioli and tortellini, so I had to make do with regular (non-whole wheat) tortellini. (I tried to convince myself that I was making up for the lack of whole wheat pasta by adding extra veggies...). I normally don't even like half those veggies, but in this soup, everything was delicious! I will be taking some of the leftovers for lunch at work every day this week, and will definitely make this again in the future.
This has become one of my family go-to recipes; especially on a cold day.
I highly recommend this soup if you like tomato-based/chili soups. This was simple & had a really great flavor. I used low sodium chicken broth & no-salt tomatoes, plus I used fresh marjoram and just used a lot more than I would have if it was dried marjoram. In the end I added some ground kosher salt to make the flavor pop; but even so, I probably used a lot less than if I had used full sodium broth & tomatoes. Because when I reheated this, my ravioli's fell all apart, next time I will cook the ravioli separate and add them to my bowl of soup separately. (just my preference, to have them more intact)
I followed the recipe almost exactly. I added extra garlic, but it still wasn't quite enough. I used a can of no-salt-added tomatoes and low sodium broth, but I ended up adding salt to my bowl at the table. Next time I will look for fire roasted tomatoes, and I'll add even more garlic and basil. But there WILL be a next time. This soup was so quick and easy.
