I loved Olive Garden's recipe so much, I went online to try and find a receipe like it. This one is very close. My family loves it! I often double the recipe and freeze it in individual portions.

How to Make Pasta e Fagioli (Like Olive Garden's)


  • 1Brown the ground beef in large saucepan or pot over medium heat. Drain off most of the fat.
  • 2Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic and saute for 10 minutes.
  • 3Add remaining ingredients, except pasta and simmer for 1 hour.
  • 4About 50 minutes into the simmer, cook the pasta in 1-1/2 to 2 quarts of boiling water on high heat.
  • 5Cook for 10 minutes until pasta is al dente or slightly tough.
  • 6Drain pasta and add the pasta to the soup. Simmer for 5-10 minutes and serve.
  • 7NOTE: I like to freeze the soup without the pasta. It seems to taste better when you make the pasta fresh each time.
