Easy Pasta Fagioli Soup is an Italian white bean soup made with vegetables, white beans and ditalini pasta. Pasta Fagioli Soup is one of our popular recipes but this time I made it in half the time!
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves- sliced
  • 4 ounces chopped pancetta ( I used Citterio)
  • 8 ounce can of chopped tomatoes, about 1.5 cups ( I used Pomi)
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 large onion - chopped
  • 1 carrot - diced
  • 1 stalk of celery - diced
  • ⅛ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (or low-sodium chicken broth)
  • 2 cans (15 ounce) organic Northern beans, rinsed
  • handful of fresh chopped basil leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • ½ pound of Ditalini pasta
  • grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil on medium heat and add garlic and pancetta. Saute pancetta and garlic until pancetta is fully cooked, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add in the crushed tomatoes and simmer for about 2 minutes. Pour in white wine and cover with a lid to simmer for about 3 minutes until the white wine reduces a little.
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients (except HOLD the ditalini pasta, this will be the last step).
  4. Bring soup to a full boil and then reduce on low heat and cover with a lid. Simmer soup for about 30 minutes, occasionally stirring.
  5. Add in Ditalini pasta and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or more. Taste the pasta to check and see if it's tender to the bite.
  6. Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. When pasta is tender to the bite, turn off the heat and serve. Ladle soup into bowls and serve soup with grated Parmesan cheese at the table.
  7. Yields: about 8 or more servings
