Pasta Fagioli Recipe

Go to the pasta fagioli comments page

Old family recipe. It is very good, indeed.



Brown meat and drain. Mix in onion, celery and cook until onion is translucent (about 5 minutes). Mix in V8 juice, tomatoes, broth, water, and chicken base. Bring to boil them simmer.

Add in carrots, asparagus, beans, spices, and garlic. Cover and simmer until carrots are done.

Cook pasta separately and add in each bowl, just before serving (see notes).

Doug's Notes

Most recipes call for adding pasta directly to the soup and letting it cook. This will cloud up the soup and the pasta will absorb a lot of moisture and get too large.
