Spicy Tomato Soup

Spicy Tomato Soup is a quick, easy, flavorful soup with just the right ammount of heat to warm you up on a cold day. Start to finish is about 30 minutes. Paired with a nice crusty bread (or my favorite, rosemary focaccia bread), this hearty soup is nutritious and filling. I can’t take any credit for this one – it is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe.

  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Cups chicken stock
  • 1 – 26 ounce jar marinara sauce (use your favorite brand)
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 – 16 ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup of pasta (anything small)
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, heat up 2 Tablespoons of olive oil on medium high. Add in the carrots and onion until softened. Then add in the garlic, half of the red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in marinara, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and add in pasta and beans. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Half way through simmering, check for seasonings. Add salt, pepper and red pepper as needed.

  1. this is officially been in the rotation because it is yum and can be made for about $7 and you get three meals out of it. Like to add that I only do 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper for the wife when cooking but I like to add a “garnish” of a 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper in my bowl.
