I made this soup for the first time in the summer, but when I saw its bright red and green colors, my first thought was that it would make a perfect first course for Christmas dinner. —Marietta Slater, Justin, Texas

"There is a very similar recipe using turkey italian sausage in addition to the ravioli, baby spinach and diced tomatoes which is also very good."

"This soup is very simple to make. It tasted great! The ingredients are easy to find at the store and readily available. It has a great contrast of colors and is very flavorful. I've made it multiple times, still great as leftovers, too."

"This is a great recipe. The first time I made it, I used chicken stock and a jar of homemade salsa instead of the diced tomatoes (I thought I was grabbing a jar of homecanned Rotel). As it turns out, this was a great addition, because it gave the soup some zip. The second time I made it, I used the Vegetable stock. While I didn't like it quite as much, my luncheon friends raved about it. Quick, healthy, delicious = 5 stars."
