Slow-Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheese Ravioli and Fresh Basil

 Slow-Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheese Ravioli and Fresh Basil

We have had some extremely cold weather and frozen rain here in Portland. I used the slow-roasted tomatoes to make a delicious tomato soup & added cheese ravioli, parmesan, and fresh basil to make it an extra special and hearty soup. I served this tomato soup with fresh crusty bread for a delicious and filling dinner that we all loved. My kids enjoyed the leftovers today for lunch and both said it was awesome. A perfect meal for a cold & rainy day.

Coat a small Dutch oven with the olive oil. Add the onions, carrots, and celery then place a lid on it. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender; add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the roasted tomatoes, chicken broth, and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cover with a lid and let it simmer for 45-60 minutes.

Blend the soup using an immersion blender until creamy and smooth then pour through a fine strainer, pushing with a spoon to remove all of the liquid from the pulp, into a large bowl. Taste and re-season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, if needed.

Side Note: I was in the mood for a smoother soup so I poured it through a fine strainer. If you are in the mood for a thicker and heartier soup, skip this step. 

Cook the ravioli in salted water per instructions. Ladle soup into serving bowls then add some cooked ravioli, shredded parmesan cheese, and freshly chopped basil to the top. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Hi Pam!
    I heard about that terrible weather by you. Way too early for such frigid temperatures. Nothing like a bowl of hot soup to warm things up especially a roastie taste of Summer. I’ve been holding off making Garden Tomato Soup for just the right occasion. I was thinking it would be in the middle of February but since snow is now falling outside, the time may be sooner than I thought. I love the Ravioli addition. GREAT idea! Thanks so much for sharing, Pam…Hope things warm up soon…

  2. It is certainly cooling down here and soup is back on the menu. Love this recipe it sounds delicious. Hope you are well Diane

  3. Looks like a winner Pam, especially with the roasted tomatoes and I like the pasta addition as well.

  4. Can’t go wrong with these ingredients! I bet it tastes heavenly!

  5. it has been NASTY here the last few days and i’m in full soup mode!

  6. This is exactly what I’m craving right now! We are having some seriously cold weather and I could use a bowl of this.

  7. This soup fits the bill for this cold weather we’ve been having. The ravioli are great to keep you from being hungry an hour later like soup normally leaves me.
