ravioli soup with quinoa and tomatoes

It’s the month of winter and we are in the USA and yesterday snow storm came. it’s different than fall and I see kids going to school buses outside and coming home and trees are filled with snow, looks like a white sheet outside. snow looks much nicer when it falls and trees look like it’s a white Christmas. I decided to make a nice soup that’s warm for the season.

ingredients

1 cup of chopped onion.

2 cans of diced tomatoes.

1 tablespoon of chopped garlic.

1 teaspoon of salt.

2 tablespoons of basil pesto.

Half cup of quinoa

Recipe

Take a deep pot and then add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and then add onions and garlic, cook it for 15 minutes and then add salt, pepper, and pesto then add half a cup of quinoa and cook it for 20 minutes then add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and 3 cups of water, then cook it for 15 more minutes and then add ravioli and again cook it for 10 minutes. it turns out really good and delicious. it’s full of healthy ingredients. I used store-bought ravioli for soup.
