Bacon, bean & pasta soup

This is almost like a stew, its so filling! Very tasty though, and warming. With a chuck of seeded bread, this is an entire meal in itself. This is also taken from the Good Food website.


  • 8 rashers rindless streaky bacon , chopped
  • 2 leeks , halved and sliced
  • 4 carrots , halved lengthways and sliced
  • 400g tin mixed beans , drained and rinsed
  • 1l chicken stock , fresh, cube or concentrate
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 50g small pasta shapes
  • a handful of flat-leaf parsley , chopped
  • grated parmesan , to serve 

  1. Fry the bacon in a large non-stick pan (it will cook in its own fat) until golden, then add the leeks and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Tip in the beans, chicken stock, tomato purée and pasta and simmer until the pasta is cooked.
  3. Stir through the parsley and serve in bowls topped with grated Parmesan.
