RAVIOLI MINESTRONE — Fresh ravioli in a tomato based broth with beans, spinach, carrots and more veggies. A dash of chili oil and Parmesan before serving makes this a restaurant quality soup.
I love a hearty minestrone soup, especially on a chilly evening, and this Ravioli Minestrone is one of my all-time favorites!
And of course, some Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley for garnish. This soup is so simple to make, but truly is a restaurant quality meal.
My family loves it too! Not everyone around here loves beans though, so I puree a bit with some of the chicken broth and they don’t even notice them.
But feel free to leave your beans intact if you’d like–that’s how I’d do it if it weren’t for some picky eaters at my house. Either way, you are going to love this soup.
This does make enough to serve a crowd, but the leftovers are delicious. And although I haven’t tried it (because I rarely have leftovers with teenage boys in the house), I think it would freeze well too.
We eat a lot of soup around here during the colder months, and this ravioli minestrone is definitely a favorite.
This soup would also be great with almost any kind of pasta. If you opt for dried pasta, you’ll want to cook it according to package instructions before adding it to the soup.
This hearty, satisfying Ravioli Minestrone is sure to become a favorite at your house too. Enjoy!
