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 .
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.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Ravioli Soup
According to my calculations, each serving has 156 calories and:
4 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
4 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
4 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
4 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
If you're less concerned about calories, the addition of some cream cheese or Boursin cheese at the end is worth the splurge. Enjoy!
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
heartier - add a can of drained white beans or chopped chicken or turkey or shrimp or crabmeat
more colorful - add chopped red bell pepper
