1 large leek, sliced

2 carrots, diced

1 onion, chopped

2 sticks celery, diced

1 potato, diced

50g (1¾ oz) spinach leaves, sliced

75g (2½ oz) tiny pasta shapes, such as farfalline

Makes a large pot of soup for the colder evenings using autumnal vegetables. If you do not have tiny pasta, break up some spaghetti into small pieces. 

Take a 9 litre AGA stockpot and put in the leek, carrots, onion, celery, potato, courgette, tomatoes, water or stock and a piece of Parmesan rind, season. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

2, 3 and 4-oven AGA
Transfer the covered stockpot to the Simmering Oven and cook for 1 hour. Conventional cooking: Simmer on a very gentle heat on the hotplate for 45-55 minutes. Add the drained borlotti beans, spinach leaves and pasta to the stockpot, stir and simmer for another 6-8 minutes. Remove the Parmesan rind and serve in bowls accompanied by crusty bread.
