HEARTY BEAN AND PASTA SOUP

Serves :
2

Preparation Time :
30 minutes

Cooking Time :
45 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan.
  • Add the onion, celery and carrot and cook over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened.
  • Add the bay leaf, stock and chopped tomatoes, then bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender.
  • Add the pasta and beans, then bring the soup back to the boil and cook for 10 minutes, or until the pasta is just tender.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent the pasta sticking to the base of the pan and burning.
