To create a festive serving bowl, scoop out the middle of a small squash. Use the middle for additional flavor in soup. Place hollowed out squash in oven at 350°F for 20 minutes or until warm and softened.

Bring vegetable stock to boil. Add flour to half-and-half cream, whisk slowly, and then add this mixture to the stock. Using cream, bring the consistency to your preference. Add 4 cheese raviolis and turn heat down to low. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese and a sprig of your favorite herb. Serve immediately.
