There is nothing better on a cold winters day then putting on your Koalabi boots and curling up to read or watch tv with a hot bowl of soup and some custy bread.
So we thought we would share one of our favourite soup recipe
3 bacon rashers, rind removed, roughly chopped
2 carrots, peeled, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1L (4 cups) beef stock
400g can Diced tomatoes
80g (1 cup) small shell pasta
1/3 cup chopped fresh continental parsley
½ teaspoon Italian Herbs
Place the bacon, carrots, and celery in a large saucepan and stir to combine. Cook over high heat, uncovered, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, beef stock, tomatoes and Italian Herbs to the pan, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
Increase heat to high. Add pasta and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, following packet directions or until pasta is al dente. Season with salt and pepper.
