Wash produce before use
Make the chorizo meatballs
- Cut a small corner from the chorizo packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Spoon off all but about 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] fat from the pot. While the meatballs are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; thinly slice the peppers.
- Rinse the white beans.
- Cut the spaghetti crosswise into thirds.
Cook the soup
Add the meatballs, kale, roasted red peppers, beans, and spaghetti. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the spaghetti is tender and the meatballs are cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Rinse the beans.
- Measure the water for the soup.
- Top the soup with the pesto.
