    1. Ensure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan of the HomeCooker; set the temperature to 175°C for 3 minutes. Place the Cutting Tower alongside the HomeCooker with the large grater in place and switch it on. Pour the olive oil into the pan; run through the carrot, celery and onion (or grate by hand). Cook for 5 minutes, until soft and translucent. Run through the garlic (or chop by hand) and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
    2. Stir in the passata, chicken stock, salt, pepper, parsley, basil and pasta. Increase the temperature to 250°C and set the timer for 8 minutes, until the pasta is al dente.
    3. Decrease the temperature to 130°C and add the beans; continue to cook for 5 minutes.
    4. Sit the Cutting Tower over a large bowl with the small grater in place and switch it on. Run through the Parmesan cheese (or grate by hand), and sprinkle on top of soup.
