Very quick to make and really tasty. I used a mixture of peas, beans and sweetcorn from our garden. Will be making this again.

LOVED this recipe. Would order it at a restaurant. Possibly needed more liquid.

Love it - and it's a really great way of getting my hubby to eat broad beans (which i chuck in with french beans and the peas).

I did what others had done and added some lentils and chilli. I also blended the soup before adding the beans, peas and pasta. Mmmm..........

Great recipe, especially on those evenings when you really can't be bothered to cook.

I've made this loads of time and will be making for friends again this evening. Brilliant bottom of the fridge dinner, healthy and tasty too. One of my faves.

Loved this recipe and it was so easy to make! I throw loads of vegetables in to make it even tastier...courgette works really well and add a bit of chilli for that little kick.

So easy to make and went down really well with everyone, surprisingly more filling than expected. We served this with garlic bread.

Very nice, next time I might try adding a little chilli as I felt it could have done with just a little extra something, but I will make it again.

I made it for two people but greedily used the same amount of tomatoes and pasta but halved the onion, carrot and peas. Spinach and Ricotta pasta worked well. My partner seems to have developed an allergy to onions so may try the suggestion of using celery instead.
