Bring to the boil 1 l (35 fl oz - 4 1/2 C) salt water; pour in frozen broad (fava) beans together with dried bay leaves and bring to the boil again. Cook for about 15 minutes. Purée the third part of the soup and put in the saucepan again. Add cherry tomatoes with their juice, marjoram, parsley and chives. Season to taste with salt and bring to the boil again. At this point add tiny soup pasta and keep on cooking according the time on the package, stirring now and then.
Remember to keep some boiling water over a low heat; in fact you could have to add other water according to your taste.
Remove from the heat, add olive oil and stir.
Serve with grated Parmesan and spicy hot; everyone will be able to add one of them or both in his dish directly, if he likes.
