1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry the vegetable soup mix with a pinch of salt for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the garlic and thyme and cook for 2 mins. Add the stock, tomatoes and beans and bring to a simmer; bubble for 5 mins.

2. Bake the garlic baguette to pack instructions. Add the broken lasagne pieces and spinach to the soup and cook for 8-10 mins, stirring regularly so the pasta doesn’t stick together, until the pasta is tender. Divide the soup between bowls and drizzle over 1 tbsp olive oil. Serve with a twist of black pepper, alongside the garlic bread.
