I like the combination of foods in this recipe because you get a bunch of food groups in one dish and a lot of flavors when everything cooks together. It includes Italian sausage as a hearty protein along with cheese ravioli and ricotta cheese for some dairy and a bit of grain. Then you get loads of nutrients through the mix of baby kale, sun-dried tomatoes, tomato sauce, bone broth, carrots, peas, and celery. You could always substitute different vegetables if anyone in your family doesn’t favor any of these.

This meal is like having a chunky sauce for the ravioli served with a salad, and I put it together into a unique soup format to keep it interesting. A chicken or bone broth adds to the consistency and provides extra nutrients.

When I plate this ravioli soup recipe, I love to finish it off by garnishing it with salad greens, salad toppings, dressing and ricotta cheese. This mixture balances out the heaviness of the soup, adding a boost of nutrients through the greens and provides a beautiful pop of color, flavor, and texture. The recipe serves two but it’s very easy to double or triple to feed a group. Let me know how you and your family or dinner party liked this complete meal in the comments below.
