Serves: 4

Prep & Cook: 30 mins


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 200g shortcut bacon rashers, chopped
  • 500g pouch minestrone soup
  • 500g jar tomato pasta sauce
  • 300g curly fettuccine
  • 2 zucchini, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 125g green beans, trimmed, chopped
  • Grated parmesan, to serve


  1. Heat an oiled stockpot over a medium to high heat. Add onion and bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until bacon is lightly golden and onion is soft.
  2. Add soup, pasta sauce and 1 litre (4 cups) water. Stir to combine. Bring to boil. Add pasta. Stir to fully immerse pasta in liquid. Cover with lid. Gently boil, stirring every 3 minutes, for 10 minutes. Uncover.
  3. Stir in zucchini and beans. Cover with lid. Gently boil for a further 5 minutes, or until pasta and vegetables are tender. Remove. Stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Season pasta with pepper.
  4. Serve with parmesan.

TIP: You can replace curly fettuccine with regular fettuccine, tagliatelle or linguine. We used a napoletana sauce for this recipe, however any flavoured pasta sauce can be used.
