Minestrone with beef ravioli

A healthy and delicious twist on the classic minestrone stew made with prepackaged ravioli and can be ready in under half an hour.

Ravioli is available from the refrigerated section of most supermarkets. For a vegetarian minestrone, use spinach and ricotta ravioli. If freezing the soup, don’t add the ravioli. Sprinkle the soup with a pinch of dried chilli flakes if you don’t have chilli oil.



1.Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic, rosemary, carrot and celery for 5 minutes or until softened.
2.Add tomatoes, stock and sugar; season. Bring to the boil; cook for 5 minutes. Add ravioli, cook for 5 minutes or until ravioli is tender.
3.Divide soup and ravioli among bowls. Top with parmesan, chilli oil and parsley; accompany with bread.
