Chicken, Spinach & Cheese Ravioli Soup

Chicken, Spinach & Cheese Ravioli Soup

Have some leftover roast chicken from Sunday dinner? This delicious soup is the perfect way to use it up! Serve with a salad and crusty bread.

2 tsp olive oil
1 cup diced onions
4 cloves of garlic, minced
6 cups of chicken broth (fat free, reduced sodium)
2 T salt free chicken seasoning (Mrs. Dash Chicken)
1/2 T black pepper
2 cups chicken, chopped/shredded
1 pound fresh baby spinach, lightly chopped
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
1/2 pound mini cheese ravioli
6 T of parmesan cheese, grated.
1 1/2 cups fresh mushrooms (optional)

Heat a large stockpot over medium heat. Add olive oil and onions.  Saute until onions are soft and translucent. This will take about 5 minutes.  Add garlic and saute for another 2-3 minutes.

Add chicken broth, salt free chicken seasoning, and pepper. Bring broth to a boil. Reduce heat and add the ravioli. Simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked through.

Stir in the cooked chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes.  Cook the soup an additional 5 minutes, stiring gently until the spinach is wilted, but is still green.

Pour into bowls. Garnish each serving with 1 T of parmesan cheese.

Serves 6
