Reviews for Ravioli Soup
"Made this soup for the first time tonight. I didnt think of it as a soup. 1st, it was more like a pasta sauce with ravioli. 2nd, there wasnt enought ravioli for all that sauce. The taste was good, but still not the consistency of soup. Next time I will halve the the tomatoes and add chicken broth to make it more like soup."
"I really loved the sauce that makes up the soup!! The flavor was excellent, and even my little girl said it was very good! :)"
"very good everyone liked it."
"The soup had a good flavor, but more to the consistency of a spagetti pasta than a soup. Probably would not make it again as a soup."
"Great thick and flavorful soup! I halved the recipe to feed my family of 6. I only had cheese tortellini on hand so I used that instead of ravioli and used the whole 9 oz. packages, the amount was perfect. I left out the tomato paste and used a 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes and added 1/2 cup beef broth and enough water to equal a soupish consistency. Very yummy, and super easy! :D"
