Why you’ll love it

Cozy up with a bowl of this simple ravioli soup in just 40 minutes! The prep is minimal, and it’s one of those soups that tastes amazing with surprisingly few ingredients. The star of this soup is the richly flavored tomato broth that uses sun-ripened Italian tomatoes from DeLallo.

Every spoonful has cheesy pasta goodness, tender Italian sausage, and the warmth and flavor of an easy tomato broth that’s infused with garlic and oregano. This is one of those soups that’s incredibly tasty as-is, or top it with plenty of parmesan and mozzarella!

What you’ll need

  • Italian sausage – I use mild. You can use bulk sausage or links.
  • Onion and garlic – our aromatic base. I like sweet (Vidalia) onions.
  • TomatoesDeLallo’s crushed tomatoes are a staple in my pantry. These San Marzano style plum tomatoes are vibrant and sweet and canned within 48 hours of harvest for peak flavor!
  • Beef broth – the savory base of the soup
  • Dried oregano – a classic herb in tomato-based broths
  • Cheese ravioli – we’re using the refrigerated kind
  • Basil – for a burst of freshness and to complement the tomatoes
  • Optional – for toppings we’ve got parm and mozza

How to make ravioli soup

This is an overview with step-by-step photos. Full ingredients & instructions are in the recipe card below.

sauteing sausage in a soup pot and adding in onions and garlic

In a soup pot, brown the Italian sausage, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat, leaving about a tablespoon in the pot. Stir in the onion and garlic, and cook for about 5 more minutes.

adding tomatoes, broth, seasoning, and ravioli to a soup pot for ravioli soup

Stir in the tomatoes, broth, and oregano. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes. Add in the ravioli, and simmer until tender. Stir in the basil, and season with salt & pepper. Top as desired with the cheese.

Substitutions and variations

  • You could sub the ravioli for tortellini if you prefer.
  • Ground beef or ground turkey would work instead of the sausage, but you may want to add some Italian seasoning for flavor.
  • Want to give this a little heat? Use hot Italian sausage or 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

Leftovers and storage

  • Leftovers will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge in an airtight container. Keep in mind that the ravioli will continue to soak up the broth the longer it sits, so you may need to add a splash more beef broth to leftovers.
  • If you plan on having a lot of leftovers, you may want to add the ravioli separately when reheating (especially if you want to freeze this soup).

    I made this tonight and absolutely loved it! I knew from the ingredients that it would be a win and I was not disappointed. I added a bag of baby spinach and also doubled the tomatoes and broth because I used frozen tortellini (16 oz) which is way cheaper than the refrigerated pasta I have been buying for years and years. So happy to find that substitute.

    Delicious – thank you and Happy Holidays!!!

    Just made this for the first time, unfortunately, most of the meat stuck to my saucepan, but once freed, the rest went smoothly, and Wow! What a tasty bowl of soup! I’ll be doing this again and experimenting with different meats and ravioli! Thanks for sharing

    1. Natasha says:

      I’m glad you liked it, Andy! šŸ™‚ Yes – be sure to stir often next time – that should help hopefully.
