Creamy Chicken & Ravioli Soup is a cream- based soup that starts off with the standard onion, carrots and celery, then builds to a buttery roux. Which is just a fancy way of saying that we brown a little flour that’s used to thicken our soup as we add layer after layer of goodness!
Some soup recipes require the pasta to be cooked before it’s added to the soup. But because this recipe uses a fresh, refrigerated ravioli, cooking it right in the soup is best. It soaks up all that good flavor and cream without overcooking the pasta!

And that combined with its deep rich flavor…? Well, that checks all the boxes and then some for a one pot meal that my family asks for time and time again.
