Tomato-Raviloi Soup

Always love my slow cooker recipes :) This one was a great one for yesterday's cold weather.

Tomato-Ravioli Soup


2 (15 oz) can stewed tomatoes
2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
2 small zucchini, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 (9 oz) package refrigerated cheese ravioli


Combine tomatoes, broth, Italian seasoning, zucchini, onion and 1/2 cup water in sprayed slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 3-4 hours. Stir in ravioli, cover and cook for additional hour. Serves 4 to 6.

Tomato-Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

This was a nice twist on the normal grilled cheese sandwich :)

Tomato-Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


3 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 tsp dried basil flakes
1 tomato, sliced
Mozzarella cheese, finely shredded
Sandwich bread slices


Mix olive oil and basil flakes together. Slice tomato and dip slices in the olive oil mix, making sure to cover both sides. In the meantime, butter the bread slices. Spray the skillet with Pam. Lay one bread slice butter side down on hot skillet. Lay a few tomato slices on the bread, sprinkle a handful of the cheese on top and cover with other bread slice butter side up. Flip just like a regular grilled cheese sandwich. Enjoy!
