Tomato Soup (quick and spicy)

This is a great soup! It's fast and really good! If making for the kids, you might want to go easy on the red pepper flakes. It's a little on the spicy side for them. I think its a great lunch or dinner, it's got protein, starch, and a little veggie. We had this for dinner the other day with grill cheese, doesn't get much easier! Enjoy

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (26-ounce) jar marinara sauce, use your fav. (I use one with a little basil in it!)
2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup pastina pasta (or any small pasta)
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 and onion, saute until soft about 5 mins. then and garlic , about 1 minutes. 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.
