Fastest and Best Pasta Fagioli ever!

Barbara Bennett


This is a meatless meal, it is so good on a cold day. It is so simple to make and oh so good. Served with a nice crusty bread your family will come back for more. I usually double the recipe and freeze the leftovers.
I usually use more garlic than the recipe calls for, we love our garlic. Enjoy!!
