Pasta & Bean Soup

This quick  pasta & bean soup is very hearty and satisfying, the perfect quick meal for busy nights!

If you are anything like me,  there is nothing better on a cold Winters day than a bowl of piping hot delicious  soup to nourish the soul.  With each spoonful it feels like a warm blanket is being wrapped around you, ahhh  BLISS!

One of the other things I love about soup is the numerous flavour combinations and the ability to include all sorts of herbs, vegetables and spices into one meal,  which then ends up so very nutritious, but not at all heavy.

Feel free to leave the pasta out if you want to reduce the carbs
