    Update – I have prepared the ingredients as above. After adding all of the ingredients apart from a tin of Pinto Beans which I did not have, I found that the soup maker is not large enough to take all of the ingredients so had to transfer everything into a saucepan to cook on the hob. I have not used 400gms of pasta as that does seems rather a lot for the soup. And I certainly won’t be using 400gms of parmesan as stated in the ingredient list as the
    instructions /method says to use a tablespoon per serving.

    I agree with you, I did wonder what size the soup maker is as there are us a huge amount of ingredients. Also as you say 400grams of parmesan, that is a lot of cheese

  • Tim Cuckston

    Surely this can’t be the right quantities? The beans alone will be 1kg, then you have 400g of pasta and easily 500g of veg . Also, Why 400g of parmesan when you only use 4 tbsp?
