Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Warm the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When it starts to shimmer, add the carrots, onion and a pinch of the salt, and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds until fragrant, being careful not to let it burn.
Add the broth, beans, marinara sauce, red pepper flakes, the remaining salt, and Parmesan rind (if using). Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover with the lid askew, and cook at a low simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes until the soup is thick enough to coat the beans.
Add the kale and the pasta and continue to simmer for 5 to 8 minutes until the pasta is al dente, or cooked through but still chewy, not soft.
Taste and season to your liking with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve hot with a spoonful of grated Parmesan, if using. When the soup is gone, discard the Parmesan rind.
