'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.
Delicious with minimal effort. I did NOT taste V-8 at all, just a wonderful full flavor. Great recipe and added to my recipes! Thanks! *** Have made this several times, with this last time using ground turkey. Also very good. **March, 2018 Just an update - this is perhaps one of 3 of the very best recipes on this site.

Great. Just the way I make it except I use low sodium or spicy v8 and add cabbage and more veggies some times. - 17 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a big hit at our house! We try to watch our salt intake, so I used low sodium V8 and salt free chicken cooking stock for this recipe. It turned out delicious, we'll definitely make this again. - 15 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
