  • grated parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), to serve

Method of preparation:

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the chopped carrots and onion and cook until soft.

Add the vegetable stock and chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil.

When it boils, add the frozen peas and beans. Reduce the heat to low and allow the soup to simmer for about 10 minutes.

Add the tortellini to the pot and cook according to the packet instructions (usually 2-3 minutes).

If using, tear the basil leaves and stir into the soup just before serving.

Pour the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the grated parmesan.
