I wanted to love this, as I saw it in her magazine and have been waiting for the right time to make it. I am a huge lover of all of the ingredients, but this soup is bland as written. I added some chopped spinach and sliced button mushrooms to increase the veggies and only added 1/2 lb of the raviolini which was perfect. (I cannot imagine using a full pound in here!) Addition of the fresh basil is a must. I added extra seasoning salt, some Italian seasoning, some all purpose seasoning and some Garlic Garlic (Pampered Chef I think). Also, the recipe says the raviolini will be done in 3-4 minutes, but my bag said it took 16 minutes (which it did). All in all, a good recipe that just needed some tweeking!
