My favorite thing about making soup is the variety is endless! I’ve made so many different ones over the years and they never disappoint! This tomato vegetable soup with mini ravioli is great year round!
Start with broth – add any protein and veggies and you have a soup!
This tomato vegetable soup with mini ravioli is inspired by my twin sister Biz. Biz is an excellent cook/recipe developer – definitely check out her blog too for lots of great ideas!
One of my favorite things to add to soups is pasta – ravioli, tortellini, bow tie pasta – it really makes a soup more filling.
If you are using a pasta in soups and will have leftovers – cook and store the pasta separately, and add what you need when you are heating up the soup.
Once you try to store soup with pasta in the fridge, the pasta will suck up all the broth and make the pasta gummy – and no one likes that! LOL

Frequently I’ll put a soup together for my lunches towards the end of the week. I see what vegetables I haven’t eaten, and if I have any leftover proteins (chicken sausage, cooked chicken, etc.) and if I have leftover salsa or marinara – I’ll add that too!
