We recently partnered with Aldi to celebrate their Soup & Steam special buys (on until Wednesday 13 June 2018).

**we were given a voucher to purchase the ingredients - not a sponsored post

I decided to make something a little more creative and outside the box. I LOVE Minestrone Soup! But I wanted to mix it up and make it a little more spicy!

Here's our recipe!


1 x tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 x brown onion
2 x tablespoons minced garlic
300g butternut pumpkin
1 x zucchini
1 x carrot
1 x can cannelloni beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1.8L Vegetable stock (I used the liquid)
2 x tablespoons of tomato paste
2 x tablespoons of Italian herbs
2 cups of Fusilli pasta
1 x chorizo/ Italian spicy sausage


* I used a 4L Cast Iron pot - this mixture JUST fit in there so if you have something bigger, use that!

- Dice all vegetables (1cm ish cubes)
- Heat oil in pot and add in the onion and garlic and brown for a few minutes
- Add the rest of the vegetables and the Italian herbs and stir through  (you'll want to eat everything right now because it looks so delicious!)
- Add the vegetable stock, cans of tomatoes and tomato paste and mix everything together
- Simmer for 30 minutes
- Drain the beans and add them in
- Simmer for additional 10 minutes
- Add pasta
- Simmer for an additional 10 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your liking!
