Simple, Yummy ~ PASTA FAGIOLI
Posted by 50sheryl
As most of you know I am a bean lover and eat them whenever I can as my source of protein and also because they keep satisfied for long periods of time. This soup has a much different flavor than the Italian bean soup I have posted earlier. I actually saw the recipe in a food magazine but adjusted it a bit to make it more flavorful. It worked out beautifully and with winter on its way, this is definitely a comfort soup! Please note: If you are not a bean eater, because of the texture, simply, puree the beans in a little broth until very smooth and add to recipe.
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 medium onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 3 cups beef broth
- 1 1/2 cups small pasta( tiny bow ties)
- 2 15oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed
- 1 14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes in juice
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until it begins to soften. Add garlic and cook about 1 minute. Add broth and pasta and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer till pasta is tender. Stir in the beans and tomatoes and cook until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in parsley. Serve topped with parmesan.
