I came up with this recipe after I had tried a few, and couldn't get it just the way I wanted. This can be made very spicy, or toned back depending on your liking.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Drain tomatoes reserving the juice; quarter each tomato slice and set aside.
  2. Dissolve the beef base in the 2 Cups hot water and set aside.
  3. Brown sausage in large pot, drain off fat.
  4. Return sausage to pan. Drizzle with olive oil, and add in the chopped garlic and spices. Cook about 2-3 minutes just to heat up the spices.
  5. Add the tomatoes, the juice from the tomatoes, and remaining ingredients EXCEPT the ravioli. (If the soup seems thick, this is where I add tomato juice to get it to the consistency I like. You will be adding the ravioli, so it will thicken a little).
  6. Bring soup to a boil; cover and reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
  7. After the 45 minutes, remove cover and and return soup to a boil.
  8. When boiling, drop in the ravioli. When it floats to the top of the pot, the ravioli is cooked.
  9. Ladle into bowls, and is great with fresh grated parmesan cheese on top.

Nice comforting, soothing soup. I made this mild sausage, and with 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Other than recipe made as written. Great soup for a weekday night. Think kids would really enjoy this as mine did. Wonder flavors, and a great combo of seasonings. Made for 2011 pick a chef..
