Kick off the busy week with something comforting and quick. Just pick up some pumpkin-stuffed ravioli at the store, whip up a sage-y brown butter sauce, and enjoy in 30 minutes flat. 

Tuesday: Chicken Soup with Cheesy Tortilla Crisps

This soup gets lots of flavor from store-bought ingredients, like jarred salsa, frozen corn, and canned beans. Pro tip: Double it and freeze half so dinner's ready the week after Thanksgiving, too. 

Wednesday: Rachael Ray's Warm White Bean & Kale Salad
