The best thing about Minestrone is you can substitute any of the ingredients for what you have in the cupboard.




1 packet bacon chopped
2 leeks sliced
1 large onion peeled and sliced
3 stalks celery chopped
5 carrots peeled and diced
4 garlic cloves peeled and crushed
2 potatoes peeled and diced
410g tin baked beans
410g tin chopped tomatoes
1 litre vegetable stock
100g spaghetti


  1. In a large pot, fry the bacon and then add the leeks, onions, celery, carrots, garlic and potatoes, beans, tomatoes and stock and bring to the boil.
  2. Break the spaghetti into the pot in small bits and simmer for 45 minutes.

 Serve with croutons.
