      In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add diced onion, garlic, carrots and celery and sauté about 5 minutes, until softened. Add in zucchini, green beans, capsicum and cook for 2 minutes.

    3. Step 3

      Add in vegetable stock, crushed tomatoes, water, parsley, sugar, season with salt and pepper to taste and bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and allow soup to gently boil, uncovered for about 20 minutes.

      Add in macaroni then cover and cook 20 minutes longer.

    5. Step 5

      Spoon the soup into each roll and top with the top of the rolls to form a lid, and serve immediately.
