Heat the olive oil, two turns of the pan, in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the vegetables and garlic and season with salt and pepper; cover and sweat the vegetables, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, stock, chicken and cheese rind and bring the soup to a low boil. Add the green beans and simmer for 5 minutes longer, to tender.
Heat water to a boil for the pasta; salt the water and cook the pasta to al dente. Drain and toss with a drizzle of oil. Keep the noodles separate from the soup to avoid overcooking the pasta; add them to the soup to heat through as you serve.
