Soup has been hitting the spot lately, probably because of the freezing temperatures and snow we have in Salt Lake! And I just love a one pot meal that is loaded with tasty, nutritious ingredients!
Today’s Soup du Jour is Vegetable Soup with Whole Wheat Spinach Ravioli. I just used what I had in my refrigerator and freezer. I had a ton of veggies that needed to be used, so they were picked for the soup team! We also had some homemade whole wheat spinach ravioli in the freezer that we made awhile ago, so I threw that in too!
The soup was delectable! I enjoyed the numerous chunks of vegetables…and the ravioli was a great addition. I loved the nutty, wholesome flavor from the whole wheat pasta…and the spinach cheese filling was wonderful as well.
If some of the raviolis break, don’t worry, it is a good thing! Then you get the cheese and spinach flavor throughout the soup! If you don’t want to make your own ravioli that is fine, just find some in the freezer section! You can find our ravioli recipe here…just use whole wheat flour! We forgot to post that variation when we made it, oops!
All and all this soup was delightful!! Do ENJOY!

This looks great, did you use all whole wheat flour in the pasta dough or a blend?
I totally have to agree about soup being the dinner of choice with all this snow and cold weather. This looks fantastic!
That looks so good… very hearty and satisfying!
I have been craving soup with raviolis! Thanks for posting this!
Soup looks great! So great for those cold nights and it is wonderful to have a one pot meal (hooray for less dishes). Hope you guys have some good weekend plans
Oooo yum. I am actually about to make a spinach tortellini soup in a few. This looks incredible!!!!
This is my kind of lunch AND dinner for that matter! Yummy!

I’ve never made whole wheat ravioli – sounds great and the soup looks wonderful.
I love soups with hearty additions- like your ravioli. What a wonderful use of leftovers!
The Ravioli makes this soup look so good. I bet this would taste delicious on any cold wintery day. Maria, please ask Josh to post more…you guys do a fantastic job blogging! =)

This looks wonderful. The blend of whole wheat and white flour makes the ravioli especially appealing.
What a healthy yet hearty soup. I love that you used whole wheat ravioli.
Yummy! I’m always so impressed with all the veggies you guys eat! I guess it helps that you don’t eat meat! I love veggies and need to follow your example and use them in every meal!
Oh, this looks delicious! I honestly can’t get enough of your soups, so I sure am glad that you are in the mood to make them!
A wonderfully hearty and healthy soup that’s perfect for shaking off a chill.
what a hearty soup…looks delish!
I love how creative you two are. And spinach ravoli sounds fabulous!
Did you take a sneak peek into my brain??? I saw some kind of ravioli on Top Chef last night and was thinking of making whole wheat ones and am still confused about the filling…
This sounds great!
A perfect meal. It’s winter comfort but with lots of healthful ingredients. I love the ravioli in it.
Oh, that is just hearty and delicious!
Very hearty with the ravioli! Great one pot
This would definitely hit the spot! Thanks for sharing a delicious sounding recipe
Ravioli’s in soup is a great idea! How yummy!
Ah.. what a kick up… love it what and spinach. I really like the contrast in colors, the plating looks fabulous, like another poster said, very satisfying.
What a great soup! Might have to use store bought ravioli, but can do the rest. Perfect for cold weather and pretty, too.l
We’ve eaten a lot of soup this winter, too. I like pasta in soups 🙂
mmmm. i love ravioli and tortellini in soup. the filling always takes on such an intense flavor from the broth. this sounds lovely!
This looks so good, I love the idea of the ravioli in it!
The ravioli would make a satisfying meal out of the soup – great for a snowy day!
(before foodie blogging visits, I had no idea certain parts of the States got so snowy and cold)
It snowed for the first time in weeks last night so this would certainly hit the spot.
i love hunks of veggies in soup, and the idea of the busted ravioli flavoring the soup is something i’d never considered. i’d be tempted to explode them on purpose. 🙂
i love that you just happen to have homemade, whole-wheat spinach ravioli on hand … classic! This soup looks delicious. So perfect for this time of year. And so healthy too!
Such a tempting hearty soup. The ravioli looks fluffy and pillowy soft.
This soup looks delicious. I have been making soup a lot lately also. I hadn’t thought of using ravioli though 🙂
I am also a big fan of one pot meals that are loaded with veggies! Yum, I bet the cheese in those ravioli tasted so delicious combined with the other savory ingredients :)! Great way to use up the leftovers, too!
This looks delicious!! I LOOOOVE veggie soup! I could go for some right now.
Your soup looks just what I need right now for the cold and snowy day we have here in the U.k.
Maria, this is a meal…some crusty bread is all that’s asked of here.
I was wondering how many servings this recipe makes?
It serves 4-6 people.
