Bens Pizza Soup Recipe

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup diced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 4 ounces dried cheese ravioli
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or to taste
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onion in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Stir beef-onion mixture, beef broth, marinara sauce, pepperoni, Parmesan cheese, garlic, minced onion, and oregano together in a large pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until flavors blend, about 20 minutes.
  3. While soup is simmering, bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the ravioli at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 14 minutes; drain.
  4. Stir ravioli into soup and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and top with mozzarella cheese.
