'Pasta e fagioli' means beans and pasta in Italian. This is my version of this comforting soup that uses cannellini beans, beef mince, tomato-vegetable juice and ditalini (or macaroni) pasta.
Very good. I had never made this before so I thought I would give it a try. I like Olive Gardens version and this is just as good. It is easy and hearty! Great for cold fall days. Very flavorful and filling. Will definitely be making this again! - 13 Oct 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I am rating this a 4 because my eleven year old son loved it. He hates carrots and it did not matter that they were present. - 07 Aug 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is my first time eating Pasta Fagioli and this one is very good, even in the summertime. I put it in the crockpot and let it Simmer all night then added a can of diced Italian-seasoned tomatoes to "beef" it up because I only used the recommended amount of vegetables. I bet this will be really good when it's cold outside too. Keeping the noodles separate is brilliant and I will use that idea with other recipes. Thanks so much Karyn for submitting your recipe. - 28 Jul 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
