This recipe is so easy, I am sure you will just love it! And you can make the vegetables stock ahead of time – even freeze it for future easy meals. I have tried this with other pastas and it makes a different soup each time.

2 cups of fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
1 cup of thawed peas
1 cup of thinly sliced mushrooms
¼ teaspoon of salt
1 package of frozen cheese ravioli, cooked
2 each, carrots and ribs celery, chopped
2 onions, chopped
1 plum tomato
3 cloves of garlic, halved
1 package of dried mixed mushrooms
¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
2 bay leaves
Directions for Vegetable Stock:
In slow cooker, combine carrots, celery, onions, tomato, garlic, mushrooms, salt, pepper and bay leaves and 7cups of water. Cover and cook on low until vegetables are soft and the flavour is to your satisfaction. Strain into a saucepan, pressing vegetables to extract liquid.
Bring stock to boil over medium heat. Add spinach, peas, mushrooms and salt – simmer until spinach is wilted.
Divide ravioli among 4 soup bowls, ladle soup over top.
