Tasty Tuesday: Quick Ravioli Soup

I made this soup last week. WOW. It was a WINNER. I didn’t even bother topping it with some fresh parmesan or soft warm bread for dipping. When I make it again I will. It would finish off the meal with an elegant touch. You wouldn’t think this meal would reheat well, but shockingly it tasted great (almost better) the next day too. If you haven’t tried one of my recipes…make this the one you try. It’s pretty healthy for a pasta dish, totally flavorful & very quick!
