Slow Cooker Spinach Artichoke Dip Ravioli Soup Recipe Notes
To keep this Spinach Artichoke Dip Ravioli Soup healthy and Weight Watchers friendly, I began with generous amounts frozen chopped spinach and artichoke hearts, both 0 points vegetables.
Then I poured in a jar of light alfredo sauce and vegetable broth (affiliate link).
To make it heartier and more comforting, I stirred in a package of fresh spinach cheese ravioli at the end.
Tortellini would work well too, but it wasn't an option at my grocery store the day I shopped.
For simplicity's sake, I made this skinny soup in my slow cooker, but you could cook it on the stove top in a lot less time if you wanted.
As I was creating this soup, I realized there were lots of ways it could be modified which I've provided in the variations below.
Both Rod and I thought this was a real winner, so it's one I plan on making again during soup season.

If you're less concerned about calories, the addition of some cream cheese or Boursin cheese at the end is worth the splurge. Enjoy!
vegetarian/vegan - use vegetable broth (affiliate link). Instead of alfredo sauce, puree a can or two of white beans in your blender (affiliate link) and stir them in along with a teaspoon of garlic powder.
no frozen artichoke hearts? - use drained canned instead
different pastas - tortellini, shells, elbows, penne, etc. would all work. (If you use dry pasta, cook it before adding to the slow cooker)
lower carb - skip the pasta
spicier - add a pinch or two or three of crushed red pepper flakes
richer - add 4 to 8 ounces of light cream cheese, light Boursin or Laughing Cow cheese

Do you think chili peppers and cayenne would suit the recipe to make it spicier? I love good heat in all my food 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
I've not tried cayenne or chili peppers but think either would work to make this soup spicier!
