CREAMY TUSCAN RAVIOLI SOUP — A creamy tomato based broth is loaded with cheesy ravioli, fresh spinach and Italian sausage in this hearty, crowd-pleasing soup the whole family will love.
When I spotted this Tuscan Ravioli Soup recipe over at my friend Gina’s blog last winter, I knew I needed to make it immediately!
It starts with a creamy tomato base that’s loaded with Italian sausage and cheese ravioli. I changed up a few ingredients based on what I had on hand, and it was a huge hit.
Made this tonight – delicious! Super quick, super tasty. Definitely a recipe to repeat. ~ Karen
My whole family loved it, proclaiming it one of the best soups I’ve ever made! It’s become a staple on our menu during the fall and winter.
Of course, anything that features pasta is bound to be a hit in a houseful of hungry teenage boys. They hardly even noticed the spinach–which isn’t something they would normally eat.
And it’s so easy–you can have this creamy, filling soup on the table in about 30 minutes.
Nothing beats a warm bowl of soup on a chilly night, and this one is hearty enough that I know no one (not even my teenage boys) will leave the table hungry.
I have used this recipe several times. I found Tortellini to be a good sub for the ravioli. This soup is a family favorite! ~ Chuck
This recipe does make a lot of soup, but it freezes well. And I don’t know about you, but I really love having leftovers for busy weeknights when I don’t have time to cook.
I know we’ll be making hearty, pasta filled soup again and again!

This sounds delicious…thank you for sharing!
This sounds wonderful, Danelle. I think I’m going to have to put it on my list of things to make soon.
Made this tonight – delicious! Super quick, super tasty. Definitely a recipe to repeat.
You said this soup does freeze easily…do you make exactly how you have the directions and then freeze as is?
Yes. Although you don’t need to heat it all the way through before freezing.
I would think that since it has pasta in it, it would not freeze well.
I used 1 pound of meat instead of 2 and I thought it was plenty.
I am going to make this without the sausage. Has anyone tried that? My teen daughter is a quasi vegetarian.
I have used this recipe several times. I found Tortellini to be a good sub for the ravioli. This soup is a family favorite!
Tortellini is a great idea!!!
Very good! I left out the meat and added more spinach. Yum @cantstopcooking
I could have easily made half of this for our family of four. Super delicious though! Will definitely make again.
This is delicious! I just made this recipe with a few tweaks: a lot of garlic, twice the amount of Basil and Oregano, and replaced the half and half with coconut milk. It was very creamy and flavorful.
Thank you for sharing!
