Hi there, friends! As luck would have it, today I happened to have a bag of frozen ravioli, beef broth, and crushed tomatoes. I always have spices on hand so that’s never an issue when it comes to having to season our recipes. This cheesy ravioli soup only calls for a few basic spices, such as Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic, and crushed red pepper. 

How to make Instant Pot ravioli soup

I’ve never made a ravioli soup before. I have made tortellini soup many times, but never ravioli. I thought maybe they would get mushy. We are happy to report, no mushy ravioli and the best part is, this recipe took less than 15 minutes to make. YUM. You may also enjoy our Ravioli Pie recipe.

Doesn’t Have to Be Cheese Ravioli, You Know?

You can use a cheese ravioli as we did, or beef, spinach, mushroom, etc. Whatever kind of frozen ravioli you find in your freezer section, you can go for it. Instant Pot Ravioli soup in 6 minutes

Forgot to mention, shredded cheese is optional, but it sure was good, especially melted on top at the end of this recipe. I used my Mealthy CrispLid to melt the cheese.

Who doesn’t love ooey gooey melted cheese? Some might not, but we sure do. Don’t forget the garlic bread on the side for dipping.

    Quick question:
    I unfortunately don’t own a pressure cooker yet but I’d love to make this. Can you give me any ideas on how you’d make it in a crockpot or stovetop if you had to?
    I appreciate your help in advance!

    Good question Brian. Its a pretty basic recipe so it shouldn’t be a problem. I would follow the recipe as directed, except Bring everything to a boil before adding the raviolis. Usually when a frozen ravioli floats its done. So throw it all in a pot on the stove on medium high heat, bring it to a boil, then add the raviolis and turn the heat down to medium. Let it simmer till the ravioli floats. Presto, cheesy ravioli soup! I would also have some garlic bread ready to sop up some of the savory broth.

    Let us know how it turns out. – Chef Eric
