Ravioli Soup with Sausage and Kale

Hearty and wholesome meet convenience with this Italian sausage pasta soup. This is the perfect recipe for a cold or busy day, when you don’t feel like spending much time in the kitchen but want something warm, filling, and comforting, STAT.

One thing we love about this Italian sausage pasta soup recipe is that it’s full of different flavors and textures. Made with a nutrient-rich bone broth base, cheese-stuffed ravioli, tender Italian sausage, and topped with ricotta cheese, each bite is truly exciting. Plus, this soup gets a healthy twist from several antioxidant-rich vegetables, such as baby kale, celery, onion, and sun-dried tomatoes.

Feel free to throw any extra vegetables you have on hand (spinach or zucchini would be great additions) into the pot. This recipe is easy to customize if you’re due for a produce-drawer clean-out.

For this Italian sausage pasta soup, we used cheese-stuffed ravioli. Not only do they add extra substance, texture, and flavor to the recipe, but they’re already prepared, which saves you time. Alternatively, you could use vegetable ravioli, or boil some tortellini, macaroni, bow-tie noodles, or pasta shells in advance.
