Everyone knows tortellini make a quick weeknight pasta dinner—but they also add substance that turns this quick, colorful vegetable soup into a meal. One caveat: Read the label carefully; avoid pasta products made with hydrogenated oils or unnecessary preservatives. Enjoy this soup with a slice of multigrain baguette and a spinach salad.

"Highly recommend. I love this recipe. I also add salt & pepper as well as more rosemary, broth, & tomatoes than it calls for. I think next time I will add celery since I don't put in the carrots. "

Fantastic Vegetarian Soup!

I love this soup! It's a quick and easy vegetarian option that tastes great and is hardy. It is very easy to alter based on the ingredients on hand. I actually omit the rosemary and use frozen basil from my summer garden. I also omit the red vinegar. I use fresh vegetables from my garden in the summer and early fall, but in the winter or when I am in a pinch for time I use a frozen mediterranean mix of veggies that has zucchini, summer squash, grean beans, carrots, peppers, and onion. I have also used canned diced tomatoes when fresh are not as available.

Easy soup and easy to alter it based on the ingredients you have on hand.

This recipe is so simple and easy. Most of the time I don't write reviews, but I have seriously made this twice a month since I came across it 3 months ago. It's filling and delicious. I normally use chicken broth and it still turns out amazing. Definitely a must try!

Used ravioli instead of tortellini, yum yum!!

This soup was very good!! I did make a few minor changes, instead of tortellini, I actually used spinach florentine ravioli by Rising Moon Organics as it had less calories and fat than any of the tortellini varieties I was finding. I just made sure the water was only very gently boiling before adding the ravioli to avoid having it break apart. I also added 2 stalks of chopped celery and a bit of chives (no onion for us!) I also added a little bit more rosemary after reading the previous reviews, and some yellow squash as well. We sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese on top and served with a slice of whole grain bread for dipping. Will definitely make this again!!

Ravioli Zucchini Soup
Delicious and fast

This is a great, quick fix meal. I knew I'd be very short on time, so I chopped my veggies the night before and put into fridge. Then just proceeded from there. Outstanding.

Best Post Back-Pack Meal Ever

After a 3 day backpacking trip, I made a double batch of this for 3 "manly" guys and myself (female) after we got back to our camper. I had all the items diced, sliced, etc. ahead of time and liquids in one container seperate from the other items. The frozen tortellinis worked great as an ice pack and it only took 20 mins until it was ready to eat! Everyone loved it!!!!!! AND were fully satisfied after wards. I had made this before, using chicken broth and it was good, but the vegetable broth adds soooooo much more flavor!!

Easy, Can Make Ahead, Everyone loved, DELICIOUS!!
