Here's a hearty, delicious, spicy, healthy, and soup. The tomato and white bean base works with just about any vegetables.


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped (I used a red onion)
  • 1 red, yellow, or green pepper
  • 3 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 26-ounce jar marinara sauce or crushed tomatoes with Italian spices
  • 2 14 ounce cans vegetable broth (can also use chicken)
  • 1 15 ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup pastina pasta (or any small pasta)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Warm the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat and chop your veggies.
  • Add the carrots, red pepper, onion, and garlic and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. I let the veggies sauté a bit longer, like 5 to10 minutes on medium heat. It gave them a great crunch but still were cooked through.
  • Add the jar of marinara sauce, broth, cannellini beans, red pepper flakes, pasta, salt, and pepper.
  • Simmer for 10 to 20 min. Ladle into bowls, let it cool for a bit and then top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese!
