With all this horrible weather at the moment I keep craving soup, but I want soup with a bit of substance, a proper meal not just a warming drink.  Minestrone is just the ticket, filling, comforting and healthy.  You can make your vegetables as chunky or small as you like but they should all be evenly sized.

1 tbsp Oil
1 Onions chopped
1 Clove Garlic crushed
1 carrots finely chopped
1 Yellow Pepper finely chopped
1 Celery Stick finely chopped
400g Tin Chopped Tomatoes
1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
1 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
1 pt Vegetable Stock
30g Soup Pasta or Brocken Spaghetti

In a large pan heat the oil and add the chopped onion.  Cook till soft then add the garlic, carrots, celery and peppers.  Cook, stirring all the while until they start to soften.

Now add the tomatoes, oregano, thyme, bay, ketchup and stock.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes till all the veg is cooked.

Lastly add the pasta and cook for 5-10 minutes till the pasta has cooked and serve immediately.
