Love Pasta Fagioli soup! It's what we always get at Olive Garden on the luncheon menu. All you can eat of salad, soup and breadsticks. Best lunch I can think of in the wintertime, and not too bad in the summer either for that matter.

Thanks for sharing a great recipe Deeli.

I haven't been to Olive Garden in a really long time, Lee, and have never tried their Pasta Fagioli but I sure do love their all you can eat salad and usually ask for extra peperoncini in it. I just made the Fagioli again yesterday to give to a neighbor friend who helps me out a lot and added an extra cup of dittalini. It turned out like a great, thick pasta type stew. ;-)

I'm to the point where all I need to do is read the name of the recipe to know that it will be from Deeli. I know they all taste wonderful but I haven't the talent or the enthusiasm for cooking complicated things like that. Old bachelors are lazy, ya know.

This a recipe that my MIL shared with me. It's her family's version of Pasta Fagioli. It's really inexpensive to make and tastes sooo good.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Great Northern beans
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. basil
  • 1/2 Tsp. oregano
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated or powdered garlic. (Not garlic salt)
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 box medium shell pasta
  • 4 qts. water

Directions

In a crock-pot, put in all ingredients except pasta. Cook in crock pot for 3-5 hours or until beans are to your desired consistency. In a separate pot on the stove, cook pasta according to the directions on the box. Add pasta to bowls and spoon bean mixture over pasta and mix well. Serve with warm bread or salad.


I love this meal and even my 3 year old daughter loves this. I love to add a couple of splashes of hot sauce to mine. Hope you all enjoy! :o)

A cup of olive oil? I just want to make sure that isn't a typo before I try it. I have made other versions but never with that much oil. Thanx (11/05/2007)

Yep, One cup. I know it does sound like a lot but you really can't tell. You can always use less if you'd like! :) (11/05/2007)

Pasta Fagioli

Is that a 1 pound bag of beans? If so, the only liquid called for is the olive oil in the crock pot? Thanks in advance.

(b)Editor's Note:(/b) The last ingredient is 4 quarts of water. (11/06/2007)
