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.
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, 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!
This was pretty quick and easy to make, though I found the acidity from the crushed tomatoes almost overwhelming. Next time I'll try adding carrots or even a bay leaf. I REALLY wanted to love this!
Delicious and fast. I used all fresh ingredients (sautéed red onions and red peppers as recommended by others) and it was a giant hit. Easy way to limit our meat intake while still having a hearty meal.
Will definitely make again! I used a chicken and cheese ravioli, and italian-style stewed tomatoes and it was really good. I added 1/2 c. of marinara from a jar because it seemed a little bland and watery, and that did the trick. Next time I might add carrots and/or some white beans.
