Hearty Soup Recipes

I love hearty soup recipes. What is a hearty soup? It a soup that is full of ingredients that just fills you right up!

 

With the weather turning cooler, I find myself making more hearty soup recipes, especially with my slow cooker. However, I wanted to make a fulfilling soup that is budget friendly and also be an Italian soup.

Italian Soup

There are several Italian soups that are hardy. I wanted to make an Italian soup that could be a complete Italian meal in a bowl. What would be budget friendly, a hardy Italian soup I could make? A ravioli soup was the answer.

Ravioli Soup

Ravioli soup is a great idea to turn into a meal bowl soup. I didn’t want to just have a cheese ravioli in this Italian soup recipe. I decided to combine a meatball soup idea with this soup recipe.

Garlic Bread Croutons

If you look at my lasagna soup, it is a lasagna soup but with a twist. I  used a cheesy garlic toast on top of the soup as you do with French onion soup. With this ravioli soup, I wanted to to do a similar concept, only I decided that it should be with homemade croutons, or should I say homemade garlic bread croutons!

Meatball Soup

What if this ravioli soup is too hardy of a soup for you? You could make it without the meatballs. However, you could just make it a meatball soup! Just leave out the cheese ravioli! This hearty Italian soup is very versatile!
