Recipe by zoe85
READY IN: 30mins




  • Have your GH heat a medium soup pot over medium-high heat.
  • Place 3 cloves of garlic on a cutting board and WHACK each clove with a small heavy frying pan.
  • Pick out the skins and chuck them in your garbage bowl.
  • Have the GH add evoo, 2 turns of the pan, to the soup pot.
  • Throw in the smashed garlic and 2 stems each of the rosemary and fresh thyme herbs. The leaves will fall of the stems and give a delicious flavor to your special stew.
  • Add the mushrooms, too, and help stir as the mushrooms cook 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Season the 'shrooms up with salt and pepper as they're cooking.
  • Next, you or your GH can open the can of stewed tomatoes and add them to the pot.
  • Use a sharp, small knife to chop the roasted red bell peppers.
  • Keep your fingers on the hand holding the peppers curled under so you don't chop off a whole finger!
  • You just want to cut up those peppers into pieces as big as your mouth; that's what they call bite-size.
  • Add the chopped-up roasted red peppers and add 1 cup tomato sauce to the soup pot.
  • Put defrosted chopped spinach into a kitchen towel.
  • Gather towel up and twist it to get the water out of the spinach.
  • Squeeze the spinach over your garbage bowl until it stops dripping.
  • Separate spinach with your fingers and add it to the soup.
  • Pour in chicken broth and stir the stew really slowly or it will slosh out of your pot!
  • Have the GH cover the soup and raise the heat to high.
  • Have the GH cut up the chicken for you on a separate plastic cutting board from the one you cut up the vegetables on.
  • Cut the chicken tenders into 1-inch pieces and add them to the stew.
  • Tell the GH to go wash up right away with lots of soap and hot water -- including the board -- so that the raw chicken doesn't get on anything else in the kitchen or any other food.
  • If you touched the raw chicken, you should wash up, too.
  • When the stew comes up to a boil again, add the ravioli and leave the lid off.
  • Cook stew until the ravioli is almost done, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let the stew cool down a little bit.
  • Have your GH serve up the stew and pass cheese and bread at the table to go with it.
