Italian Meatball Soup
You really get the best of both worlds with this recipe – tasty, flavoursome meatballs and a warming, vegie soup. Featuring Italian-inspired ingredients, we’ve thrown in some green beans to complement the other flavours. Soak up the soup with a nice slice of crusty bread and you’ll wish it was always cold enough to eat this type of food.
Chicken Cacciatore will forever be a family favourite, so you know it’s always going to be worth the slightly lengthier cooking time. There’s loads of flavours packed into this one and the cannellini beans make it nice and hearty. If there’s any leftover it makes for a very appetising lunch the next day!

This pesto and bacon pasta dish is as easy as they come. It’s ideal to throw together when the pantry is looking scarce and we’ve simply added peas for extra flavour.
