  • Pour a generous amount of olive oil in a large pot. While the oil is heating up, dice the onion. Add it in the pot. Cover with a lid and sweat for about 5 minutes on medium heat.
  • Wash, peel and cut carrots & celery sticks. Add them to the pan. Stir occasionally.
  • Wash and separate kale leaves and cut out the hard middle parts. Cut the kale leaves into thin strips and add to the pot. Add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes, 2 bay leaves, 1 liter of water and a stock cube. Season with salt (1 tea spoon). Simmer for 20 minutes. Taste, add more salt if necessary.
  • Now add cannelloni beans. Simmer until the vegetables are cooked to your liking. At last add small pasta shapes and cook until they are ready. Turn off the heat.
  • Serve in a bowl topped with generous amount of Parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil and some basil leaves. This soup is really nice with a slice of warm buttered toast.
