Tips and Suggestions

If you can't find passata, any sieved and uncooked tomato sauce (but not concentrated tomato purée) can be substituted.


1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, onion, garlic and thyme and cook for 3 minutes or until soft.

2. Add the passata, stock, carrot, courgette and parsnip. Cover and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer rapidly for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. To serve, ladle into bowls and top with salt, pepper and the grated parmesan.
