Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a low heat. Add the garlic, onions, celery and carrot. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt, cover and sweat down for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Squish the tomatoes in a colander so that you have a pulp and no juices. Add to the pot with the tomato paste, vinegar, sugar, broth and broccoli. Bring to a simmer and cook gently, covered, for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and stir into the soup along with the basil. Season to taste.
  4. Divide between bowls. Put the Parmesan on the table so that people can help themselves.
