Tomato and White Bean Soup with Rice

Soup season is upon us. I knew I had 1 more marinara pouch in the freezer, so I thought I could make that in to a soup somehow. I consulted lots of recipes and just kinda made mine up on my own. I took my marinara sauce and added 3/4 bottle of Merlot(drink the rest), 1 can of beef broth(you could use chicken, veggie, or whatever you have), and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Then add 1 cup uncooked rice and a can of drained and rinsed white beans. Cook for an hour or so at low heat stirring every 15 minutes or so to make sure the rice does not stick. You could add already cooked rice in at the end, but I didn’t have any made. If you think it needs more liquid, add more stock or just water. Add 2 tablespoons of butter at the end. If you wanted to add a splash or cream, a dollop of sour cream, or creme fraiche, that would be awesome. I even have leftovers! Some for my breakfast and some for the freezer! Bon appetit!
