Pasta e Fagioli

Beth Streeter


An all day soup... great for a winters day when the kids have off from school. I like to get my kids cooking as much as possible and this is a great way to do it. This soup freezes well just don't add the kidney beans or noodles before you freeze it... add them when you take it out to heat it up.
