Instructions
  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the onion, garlic, celery and carrot.
  2. Saute for about 10-15 minutes, turning heat down if it’s too much. You want the veggies soft and golden.
  3. When you’re happy with the colour on the veggies, add the canned tomatoes, the water, basil, oregano, bay leaf, sugar, salt and pepper (remembering to adjust the salt if you are using stock).
  4. Bring to a boil, then return to a simmer for as long as you’ve got - an hour is best. Pop in a piece of parmesan rind if you have one and let it do its thing.
  5. With 20 minutes to go, add the beans and small pasta.
  6. Taste for seasoning and serve. Awesome with a swirl of olive oil, some grated parmesan and a handful of fresh herbs.
