On the account that I do not feel well at all, Mark and I decided to make dinner tomorrow! This way I will throughly be able to enjoy this new concoction we are going to try!
But I didn't want to leave you with nothing tonight. I mentioned earlier that when I am not feeling well, or simply in one of those moods where I am not myself I reach for recipes that are old and familiar. A few years back my Grandma presented me with a cookbook she had been working on for years. This was not just any cookbook but a compilation of some of the most loved family recipes! Many of the recipes in this cookbook were ones that I had grown up eating, they are the types of recipes that have fond memories pinned to them!
While I was eating my oddly concocted chicken noodle soup I was aimlessly flipping through this cookbook looking for a recipe to share with you all! Since soup is a go to when I am sick I am going to share with you Chicken Ravioli Soup. This was a staple go to meal on a busy week night, and always a welcomed favorite in our household. In college I would make this soup and one pot would feed me for weeks. It also freezes really well!
With out further delay I present to you Brian's Ravioli Soup:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 10.5 ounce cans reduced sodium chicken broth
2 15 ounce cans diced tomatoes with garlic and onion (Del Monte)
2 small zucchini
1 25 oz package of fresh or frozen cheese ravioli
2 Teaspoons Dry Parsley
Grated Parmesan Cheese to top each serving with
What you do:
First get a pot of water boiling to cook your chicken breast in. While your chicken is place your broth, your drained tomatoes, and zucchini into a big soup pot and bring to a boil. Once your chicken is done shred each piece into bite size pieces and add to your big soup pot! Now it is time to add your ravioli. Once your ravioli is added simmer for minutes or until your ravioli is nice and tender. Stir in your parsley, grab your favorite soup bowl and enjoy!
As I am writing this post I can feel my mouth water, and I wish I had a bowl of this soup sitting right next to me!
Enjoy, and Remember to Live Happily ever Healthy! See ya tomorrow!
