Cook pasta in a pot of salted boiling water until just ‘al dente’. Drain and reserve. Cut broccoli into small florets and chop the stalks. Heat Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil in a large heavy-based pot and sauté onion, garlic and bacon until softened. Add carrots, potatoes and chopped broccoli stalks (reserve the florets) and sauté for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, stock and beans and bring to the boil. Simmer uncovered for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are tender and soup has thickened slightly. Add broccoli florets and pasta to soup and simmer a further 5 minutes or until broccoli is just tender. Season to taste. Spoon into bowls, drizzle with Moro Primero Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sprinkle with parsley and Parmesan, and serve with crusty bread.
If making ahead of time, take care to add the broccoli when reheating the soup so it remains crisp and bright green in colour.
