Soup of the week for Souper Sunday: Bacon, bean & pasta soup

Spring is coming in Northern Germany, but this week was cold with night frosts. Just the right weather to serve still a wintery warming soup as my 9th contribution for Debbie’s Souper Sunday. I used the remaining beans from the Italian legumes mixture for the

1. Fry the bacon in a large non-stick pan (it will cook in its own fat) until golden, then add the leeks and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes until softened.

2. Tip in the beans, chicken stock, tomato purée and pasta and simmer until the pasta is cooked.

3. Stir through the parsley and serve in bowls topped with grated Parmesan.

Although this contains streaky bacon, the calories are still modest. The mixed beans and pasta boast a low GI rating making this a healthy choice.

    Hmm, das sieht lecker aus. Nudeln mit Bohnen habe ich schon eine Weile auf meiner Nachkochliste. Hat sich bis jetzt aber noch nicht ergeben. Vielleicht wenn der Frühling sich noch etwas Zeit lässt… Ich könnte aber auch gut noch bis zum nächsten Herbst warten. :)

    Another delicious soup! So funny, I put a box of pasta „O’s“ in my shoppingbasket yesterday thinking they would be fun to put in soup. Thanks for coming to Souper Sunday-I just got the round up posted.
