Arrabbiata White Bean & Vegetable Soup

Use jarred arrabbiata sauce to add more of a kick to an old stand-by, with this somewhat spicy Arrabbiata White Bean & Vegetable Soup.

Let’s shortcut our way to spicy veggie flavor, with today’s Arrabbiata White Bean & Vegetable Soup recipe. This hearty soup truly hit the spot on a chilly fall day, and the richness of the arrabbiata pasta sauce (and a little kick!) shone through beautifully. Make your own bowl a bit messy by melting in some shredded Parmesan, too — you won’t regret it. 🙂

ALDI occasionally carries arrabbiata pasta sauce as a special buy, so I usually grab a couple of jars & enjoy the change of pace of its spicier flavor over pasta. This time, though, I thought that treating their arrabbiata sauce as an ingredient might be a nice way to kick up a pot of vegetable soup.

And look at that: It worked! Full of rich, slightly spicy tomato flavor, this veggie-packed soup pairs perfectly with a warm loaf of crusty bread (such as the ALDI baguette pictured here) to create a simple yet filling comfort food dinner.

While the veggies are sauteeing, rinse and drain the beans, and drain the green beans & corn.

Hi Rachel! We love your recipes and meal plans! What do you suggest I use if we do not have the sauce?

@rachel, they didn’t have arriabiata, but they DID have giardinara sauce. I’ll keep you posted!

Well, arrabbiata sauce is a spiced up garlicky pasta sauce -- so you could try regular marinara and season with crushed red pepper and garlic to taste in order to give it that little kick. :)
