  • Wide pot
  • Colander or fine-mesh sieve


  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons capers drained
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper more or less to taste
  • ½ cup white wine or vegetable stock
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 15 ounce can or cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 16 ounces zucchini noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish optional


Cook the Aromatics:

  • Heat the extra virgin olive in a wide pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring often, until well-browned, about 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Melt the butter into the onions. Once melted and frothy, add the cherry tomatoes and capers and cook for 3-5 minutes until the tomatoes begin to split and the capers turn golden.
  • Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

Prepare the Broth:

  • Deglaze the pan with the white wine and bring to a boil. Stir frequently. Boil for 3-4 minutes or until the wine begins to reduce. Add the stock and the beans and bring to a boil. Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Taste and season again.

Add the Zucchini Noodles:

  • Bring the broth back to a boil and add the zucchini noodles. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until just softened. Season again to your preferences. Turn off the heat.

To Serve:

  • Divide the noodles between shallow bowls and ladle the broth on top. Serve with grated parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
