This a great base for a minestrone soup. I used what I had in the cupboard & added chopped carrots, garlic & pasta tubes but left out the olive & capers. As I didn't have any fresh basil I replaced this with mixed herbs. I make a lot of soup & my husband said it was by far the best soup I had ever made.

Added carrot and courgette as well at the start. Was nice and easy but not amazing.

Very good soup. I didn't have any olives so used half a tin of black eyed beans in their place and used macaroni instead of the spaghetti. Wasn't sure the tarts were going to be a good accompaniment, but they were a hit with the family and a bit different to serve with soup.

I really liked this sopu. I was a bit worried that my hubby wouldn't, but he surprised me by telling me he liked it before I even asked. I sprinkled some parmesan on top before serving, lovely.
