3 tbsp Waitrose Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus extra to serve
400g can essential Waitrose Plum Tomatoes, crushed with a spoon
2 x 500ml packs Cooks’ Ingredients Chicken or Vegetable Stock
400g can essential Waitrose Borlotti Beans, drained and rinsed Parmigiano Reggiano rind, about 20g
110g cavolo nero or spring greens, shredded into 1cm pieces
50g dried spaghetti, broken into 2cm lengths
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh curly leaf parsley, to serve
FOR THE PARMESAN CRISPS
60g Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a low heat, then add the carrots, onion, celery and garlic. Cover and sweat slowly for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.
Add the tomato purée and plum tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Pour in the stock and borlotti beans and bring to the boil. Add the Parmesan rind and the cavolo nero or spring greens and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the spaghetti and cook for 5 minutes less than the pack instructions suggest (by the time you serve the soup, it will be perfectly cooked). Season to taste.
Meanwhile, to make the Parmesan crisps, preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and heap the grated cheese into 4 rough circles. Bake for 7 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Remove from the oven and set aside to cool and harden.
Ladle the soup into 4 bowls (discard the Parmesan rind). Drizzle each portion with a little olive oil and scatter over some chopped parsley. Serve immediately, with a Parmesan crisp on the side.
