Pasta Agile

Minestrone style soup with five different seasonal vegetables and tasty spices, great for a quick and nourishing lunch. Using the Agile makes this soup extra speedy but the secret is the layers of flavour made by cooking the vegetables and spices first. Add a spoonful of pesto and serve with some toasted lunch for an even more filling meal or keep it simple with the recipe as it is.
