'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.
This soup was amazing! I liked it better than the chain restaurant version. I served my family the whole soup, salad and breadstick meal, they were all thrilled with the quality of the soup. I added red pepper flakes for a little spice. - 18 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thought this was great. Made a double batch, cooked all day (added beans only for the last hour and a half cook time) used a little more Basil and Oregano than the recipe called for, IT WAS DELISH!!! - 06 Nov 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is a new family favorite! Only a few changes--husband doesn't care for V8 so I used plain tomato juice. And used elbow macaroni and kidney beans because that's what I had in the pantry. But loved the flavor combinations of the recipe. - 05 Nov 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
