  • Add vegetable broth, marinara sauce, tomato paste, and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until carrots are soft, about 10 minutes.

  • Add pasta and zucchini. Cook until pasta is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in beans, kale, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat and allow soup to cool slightly. Spoon into individual bowls and garnish with Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Note:

If you are making the soup ahead of time, cook pasta separately and add to individual servings.

Thanks Bibi this was great! So versatile too. I added potatoes but this would be good with any number of veggies- corn green beans whatever. I did add some extra spices but that speaks more to the jar of marinara than the recipe! I did end up adding 2 extra cups of broth to make up for the broth absorbed by the pasta but that was the only significant change I made. The family loved it! Read More

oh my goodness this soup is so flavorful! I substituted fresh spinach--2 handfuls--for the kale. Next time will make with fresh garden herbs but it was so good even with store-bought dried Italian seasoning. Yummy! Read More
