Preheat the oven to 180C/fan oven 160C/gas mark 4.


Cook the macaroni according to pack instructions, then drain. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan, then cook the onion and garlic slowly until tender and golden.


Stir in the herbs, tomatoes, courgettes, beans and stock. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Make this recipe in summer when tomatoes, courgettes and green beans are at their seasonal best – and cheapest.

You could use reduced-fat vegetarian hard cheese instead.
