How to Store Ravioli Soup

Cover and refrigerate the soup for up to 3 days. To reheat, microwave or reheat in a saucepan over low heat until heated through. You may need to thin the soup with more broth to reach the desired consistency.

Can I Use a Different Pasta?

We use cheese ravioli in this soup recipe to keep it vegetarian, but you can also use a meat-filled ravioli. Or, swap the ravioli entirely and use fresh cheese- or meat-filled tortellini instead. Tortellini are more delicate than ravioli, so be sure to stir gently to avoid breaking them apart.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add pepper-onion mix, garlic and crushed red pepper (if using) and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, broth, water and basil (or marjoram); bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Add ravioli and cook for 3 minutes less than the package directions. Add zucchini; return to a boil. Cook until the zucchini is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Season with pepper.
