Ingredients

1.5 litres chicken stock
1 large onion, chopped
1 fennel bulb, chopped
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 courgettes, diced
200g green beans, trimmed and cut into short lengths
150g frozen peas
250g fresh spinach and ricotta ravioli
200g leftover roast chicken, shredded
½ x 20g pack flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Method

1. Put the stock in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the onion, fennel and garlic, then simmer for 7-8 minutes until fragrant.

2. Add the courgettes, beans and peas, bring back to the boil and simmer for another 5 minutes.
