Pasta e Fagioli (Like Olive Garden's)

Sheri Mullins


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.

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.
