Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces EACH) fire-roasted diced tomatoes with seasonings the fire-roasted adds so much flavor!!
  • 2 cans (10.75 ounces EACH) tomato soup
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves (~1/4-1/3 cup) chopped or 3/4 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 3-4 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup packed spinach
  • 1/2 to 1 full package (25 ounce package) frozen 5-Cheese Ravioli minis if you can find it!
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Optional: fresh basil for topping

Instructions

  1. Spray a large crockpot with nonstick spray. (The crockpot I use is 6 quarts).
  2. Pour in the cans of diced tomatoes (don't drain), tomato soup, and tomato paste. Add in the onion, garlic, sugar, basil, bay leaf, Italian seasoning, and chicken or vegetable broth (3 for a thicker soup, 4 for thinner).

  3. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or high for 2-3-1/2 hours. Take out the bay leaf and then carefully transfer the mixture in batches to a blender or food processor.
  4. (I used a Blendtec and did it in 2 batches) Blend or pulse until completely smooth. Pour back into the slow cooker. (Alternatively you can use an immersion blender.)

  5. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the heavy cream.

  6. Add in the packed spinach and ravioli. (If you can find mini frozen ravioli's, use those). No need to cook the ravioli first.
  7. Cover the slow cooker and turn up to high.
  8. Cook for 10 minutes or until the raviolis are cooked through. I prefer this soup really thick and each bite filled with ravioli, but you may like a thinner soup with less ravioli so add the ravioli slowly to your desired preference and add additional chicken or vegetable broth if desired.

  9. Top each bowl with Parmesan cheese and additional fresh basil if desired.

Recipe Notes
