Crockpot Tortellini Soup June 20, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I have seen many iterations of this soup across the internet. With my habit of buying tortellini and ravioli on clearance and stocking my freezer with it, I have been looking for ways to enjoy it. This soup hit the spot. It was a little tangy so I added some sugar after the fact and enjoyed it. Best part is it a “dump everything in and enjoy” recipe.



  • 32 oz. box of chicken stock
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 8oz. block of cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp pesto
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 parmesan cheese rind
  • 9 oz. package of refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 bag spinach

Crispy Baked Ravioli June 18, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I always buy packages of ravioli when I see them on a big markdown. They store well in the freezer and make a good quick meal. I have been trying to find new recipes for them and I came across this. This was really tasty and simple. I love the thickness the sour cream added to the wet dip.


  • 1/2 cup Italian dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 48 small refrigerated cheese-filled ravioli
  • 3/4 cup pasta sauce, warmed
