Quick Tomato Vegetable Soup

This is an easy and tasty soup that I adapted from a Giada DeLaurentis recipe. I made it this weekend for Mom and Granny's visit to Wichita :)


* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
* 1 medium zucchini, halved and sliced
* 1 medium squash, halved and sliced
* 1 small onion, chopped
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1 (26-ounce) jar marinara sauce (recommended: Newman’s Own brand)
* 2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
* 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
* 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
* 1/2 cup small pasta such as macaroni
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Warm the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, onion, zucchini, squash and garlic and saute until softened a little. Add the jar of marinara sauce, chicken broth, cannellini beans, red pepper flakes, pasta, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve.
