I used a small fresh onion and 2 cups fresh red/yellow peppers. I also cooked the ravioli separately to place into bowls prior to ladling the soup over it. This prevented the ravioli from breaking down- particularly when reheating leftovers. This soup can easily handle additional zucchini or any other vegetables you want to add. Adding corn or spinach would work particularly well.
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.

It's very hard for me to find new soup recipes I enjoy enough to add to my folder... Usually I stick to the ones I already have as I know I enjoy them.. While trialing out different ones. I stumbled across this recipe and I'm VERY glad I did. This is by far my favourite soup. It's so full of flavour and the colours are beautiful. You don't need to add anything at all, I followed the recipe completely. Next time I may add more garlic but that's only because I can never have enough of that. hehe.
I found myself licking the spoon, running my fingers around my bowl and licking them too. Although I was completely stuffed and my stomach was bulging (Yeah I pigged out on this). I was almost tempted to go and get seconds.. And I don't eat much so that's saying something about this amazing recipe.
If you choose to make this recipe because of the review I really hope you read mine as I cannot give this soup enough stars.
This is at the front cover to my soup recipe collection folder now.
I was a bit skeptical at all the good reviews, but now I'm sold! More amazingly, my husband really liked it, and normally he won't touch zucchini with a 10 foot pole. I think I'll make this again for coming snow storm...
A super quick and simple hot dinner that pleases my whole family. I sprinkle my bowl of soup with parmesan cheese and serve it with French or Italian bread. You can us fresh or frozen peppers & onions, yellow squash in place of zucchini and any ravioli you like (fresh or frozen; meat, cheese or butternut squash).
I've been making this soup for years and it rarely disappoints. Its easy and simple enough for a beginner cook to make and often pass this recipe along on bridal shower recipe cards. Its a great weeknight meal.
This is super easy to make and tastes pretty decent. I think its lacking somewhere and I haven't figured out what exactly. I cut the portions down a bit and was still satisfied completely after eating the smaller portion. Definitely hearty and worth a try.
