Pasta E Fagioli, or Pasta with Beans, is a classic Italian soup made with three different beans, pasta, and an abundance of Italian spices. Perfect for a casual weeknight supper or a dinner with friends, this is a hearty soup that just begs for some warm bread to sop up all the juices.
This soup is my way of welcoming the cooler fall weather; that is, assuming you live somewhere cooler than the oven that is currently Phoenix, AZ. Here in the desert, we’ll be enjoying our soups with the a/c on high for at least another month.
This Pasta E Fagioli is a recipe from my friend Liz’s new eCookbook: Food From Our Ancestors: The Ultimate Italian Sunday Dinner. The cookbook is filled with Liz’s family’s favorite Italian recipes and each one makes me want to pull up a chair and dive in. The Shrimp Scampi is next on my list and I can hardly wait!
If you’re looking for some great family dinner inspiration and you love Italian food, Food From Our Ancestors: The Ultimate Italian Sunday Dinner is exactly what you need. Buon Appetito!
