Frozen Ravioli Soup

For this recipe, I wanted to make a delicious veggie-packed soup that was filling, yet healthy and I wanted to make it with only freezer and pantry ingredients. Let’s face it, sometimes the fridge looks a little bare, but instead of going to the grocery store, check the back of your freezer for these ingredients! These are easy things to keep on hand and since we’re using frozen ingredients, we don’t have to do any chopping. This is truly a 15-minute meal and it’s so hearty and delicious!

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Olive oil– You could skip this if you don’t have any olive oil on hand. Frozen veggies tend to have plenty of moisture, so you don’t have to worry about the pot being too dry. I do think olive oil helps enhance the flavor though, so use it if you have it!
  • Peppers & Onions– You can buy a frozen bag of chopped peppers and onions at most grocery stores (even Trader Joe’s!) and these are great because they contain a mix of red, yellow, and green bell peppers plus onions. That’s right, no chopping required!
  • Seasoning– I used Italian seasoning plus dried oregano, garlic powder, and crushed red chili peppers.
  • Pasta sauce– This is the secret to adding lots of flavor to the broth. I like to use Rao’s Tomato Basil, but you can use any kind you like.
  • Vegetable broth– Forms the liquid base of the soup, infusing it with savory and aromatic flavors. I like Edward & Son’s “not chicken” broth as well as the Better than Boullion vegetable broth base.
  • Ravioli– I recommend using mini ravioli since that’s a little easier to eat in soup. You could also use tortellini if you prefer.
  • Spinach– I used chopped frozen spinach to add an extra dose of veggies to this soup. You can substitute with fresh spinach if that’s what you have on hand!

How to Make Frozen Ravioli Soup

How to Store Leftover Soup

Allow the soup to cool to room temperature, then transfer it to an airtight container. Refrigerate promptly and store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. I do not recommend freezing this soup as the pasta will get gummy when reheated from frozen.

How to Reheat Leftover Soup

When you’re ready to enjoy the leftover soup, reheat it on the stovetop over medium heat or in the microwave at one-minute intervals, stirring to ensure even heating. Once the soup is warm, add any seasonings as needed and enjoy!
