1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1 (28 ounce) can chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 (32 ounce) container Swanson chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon granulated

Freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup fresh soft bread
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoons onion salt

In a food processor place bread and pulse until you get a medium or almost fine
crumb mix. To this add parmesan cheese, onion salt, egg, parsley garlic and ground
beef, process until all ingredients are combined. Shape into 1/2- to 1-inch balls.
In a nonstick 4- to 6-quart soup pot, brown meatballs in heated olive oil until
cooked through. Mix in onion and garlic and cook about 5 minutes, being careful
not to break up meatballs).
Add tomatoes and liquid, tomato paste, broth, water, sugar, basil, thyme and
oregano. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Add
ravioli and cook, covered at a gentle boil according to package direction (approximately
10 to 15 minutes), until they are just tender and no longer have a starchy taste.
Salt to taste. Stir in parsley and sprinkle with cheese.
