This soup is perfect for the end of summer / start of fall when the days start to get a little chilly (and a lot rainy here in the PacNW). So fresh and soothing at the same time! If your vegan just use veggie stock!

  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c fresh tarragon, minced

In a large saucepan heat stock, tomatoes and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with tarragon.

Air Fryer Crispy Ravioli

This dish was inspired by Eating Well. Use fresh pasta for this recipe. I swapped out Italian Seasoning for herbs de Provence.

  • cooking spray
  • 1 c panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ c grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning or herbs de Provence
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 fresh ravioli
  • 2 cups low-sodium marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish. Whisk egg and water in a separate shallow dish. Dip ravioli in the egg, letting excess drip off, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Place on the wire rack. Lightly coat the ravioli with cooking spray.

Bake the ravioli until golden brown and crispy, about 15 minutes.

Serve the ravioli with the sauce and more Parmesan, if desired.
