An Italian classic packed with vegetables, pasta and herbs.


  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 celery stick, roughly chopped
  • 5 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3½ tbsp tomato purée
  • 227g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1.2 litres boiling vegetable stock
  • 2 large carrots, peeled, roughly chopped
  • ½ x 400g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 120g dried conchigliette or other small pasta shapes
  • 80g kale, large stalks removed, finely chopped


  1. Put the onion, celery, roughly chopped carrot, garlic, herbs, tomato purée, chopped tomatoes and stock in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Discard the bay leaves and whizz until smooth using a stick blender (or use a food processor or liquidiser and return the soup to the pan).
  3. Add the finely chopped carrot, beans and pasta and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the kale and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the pasta is cooked but still has a little bite. Season lightly and serve hot.
