Next add a tin of chopped tomatoes, a vegetable stock cube and 500ml of boiling water. Let this summer whilst you make the meatballs
In a bowl mix 200gm of minced beef with 1/2 teaspoon of chilli, 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan, a handful of finely chopped fresh marjoram (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried marjoram) and season with salt and pepper, make in to meatball and fry for a couple of minutes until browned then set aside
Next, add your pasta into you soup mix (approximately 3-4 handfuls) and cook in the soup
