Ravioli Chicken Soup

Spring is here and I’m still making soups!  That’s because it’s been snowing here for the last week and the temperatures are below zero.  Crazy!  So I’m celebrating the new season with a comfort food so you get the best of both worlds and wow – this is definitely the best!

Ravioli Chicken Soup | Simply Fresh Dinners

I first saw this recipe on bhg.com but I’ve changed it up considerably.  I wanted you to be able to get this family friendly dish on the table in 20 minutes with minimal fuss so I eliminated a couple of ingredients but added more veggies and flavor.

Spring vegetable dishes are super popular on the blog and you can find them here.  And this spring soup featuring a tomato base seems to be a special favorite of many and I’ll definitely be making it again soon.

You can buy fresh pasta and a rotisserie chicken (or use leftover chicken that you may have on hand) and simply add your veggies, cook for 7 minutes and it’s done!  I used frozen green beans and edamame because I always have them in the freezer but fresh green beans would be great too.  The asparagus, fresh rosemary and basil gives this dish so much flavor that everyone will be asking for second helpings.

Now if you want to make your own mushroom ravioli and cook up some chicken, don’t let me stop you!  Homemade ravioli is the best but I’m simply looking to make this as quick and easy as possible for a busy weeknight.  And if you do make some homemade ravioli, could you send me some please?  Ok, how about the recipe then? Cheers!

    What an excellent way to use and enjoy raviolis! Why didn’t I think of that?? 🙂
    I will most certainly cook up some of this soup as I love, love soups, even when the weather is nice. You can do so much in a soup in a hurry, and with little mess most of the times.
    Sorry to hear that you are still getting snow, but, those days will soon be gone and beach weather will be here before you know it.
    We have been getting rain this week which I love because it washes all the winter muck away. I’m sure it will turn to a wet snow though.
    Enjoy your warm soup on those dreary days, sweet friend.

    We’ve had some crazy cold spring weather here, too. I think soups that are full of spring veggies are the perfect bridge between winter and the warmer weather. They are warm and cozy on a chilly day, but they’re still bursting with freshness from the produce. This looks delicious, and I love that you’ve made it so FAST!

    We actually make soup every month of the year, although less so during warmer weather. But this would be perfect any time! Love the looks of this — just gorgeous. So many fun shapes and textures. Not to mention flavors. 🙂 Good stuff — thanks.

    Hi Robyn!
    I had to pop back in and let you know that I made your delicious soup last night for my husband and I, oooh was it ever wonderful!
    We will have the left overs tonight.
    I used butternut squash raviolis that had a great flavorful punch to them.
    My husband isn’t crazy about soups, but I could eat then daily. He liked this one.:-)

    Joy!
    Debbie

    Very creative soup with ravioli. Great idea to use a quick cooked chicken from the market and fresh pasta.
    People will love how easy it is to prepare. It was great catching up with you. Love our chats Robyn.
    Have a fabulous weekend. Lots of love from W.W.
