Simple Italian minestrone soup with sausage, noodles, and small beans

50 min

It sounds like a childhood nightmare — soup and vegetables. However, we assure you that every fussy eater will like it.


  • Half a pack of Silesian sausage from Morliny (2–3 sausages)
  • 2 litres of broth
  • 1 cup of fine pasta
  • 500 ml of tomato puree
  • 1 can of sliced tomatoes
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 root parsley
  • 1 leek (white part)
  • A handful of fresh basil
  • A handful of green beans
  • A can of fine beans
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sugar to taste
  • Frying oil


Step 1

Dice the sausage. Slice leek and celery. Peel and dice carrots and parsley. Clean the green beans and cut them into 2–3 cm (0.8–1.2 in) pieces. Chop the basil. Strain canned beans from the pickle.

Step 2

Use a large pot to heat the olive oil, and fry the sausage on it. Add the leek and celery, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the carrots, green beans, and parsley. Pour everything with the broth with tomatoes and puree. Add the bay leaf and cook it all, covered, on medium power for about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Add chopped basil to the soup. Pour in the strained beans and raw pasta, and mix thoroughly. Season with salt, a pinch of sugar, and pepper. Cook until the pasta is soft.
