Spicy Pea & Pasta Soup Recipe

Be sure not to forget the Parmesan and olive oil at the end as these two elements really make this soup special.

Spic Pea & Pasta Ingredients

8oz Broken Linguine or Spaghetti Pasta
1 medium Onion
2 cups of peas (fresh or frozen)
1/2 liter Vegetable Stock
Fresh Thyme
Dried Chilli Flakes
1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese

Finely chop the onion and fry over a low heat for about 10 minutes or until soft. Add the vegetable stock to the onions then add the thyme & chilli.

Break the linguine into pieces about 3-4cm in length and add to the pan. Simmer on a low heat until the pasta is cooked (about 10-13 minutes).

Season to taste then serve in a bowl being sure to add a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese and a small glug of fresh extra virgin olive oil.
