Spray the pot with cooking spray. Sauté the onions, carrots, cabbage, celery, courgettes, green peppers and garlic until the vegetables are cooked and slightly limp.
Add the water, marinara sauce, ground white pepper, Italian herb seasoning and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Add the cooked white beans and macaroni. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the macaroni is tender.
