How to Make ~ Pasta E Fagioli ~ My Way


  1. Soak beans covered with water overnight.

    In a Dutch oven or large soup pot, sauté vegetables in oil. Once tender, stir in tomatoes, drained beans, spices, beef paste and beef broth.

    Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Cook and occasionally stir for 3 hours or until beans are cooked. If need be, add water if becomes too thick as you will be adding pasta next.
  2. Stir in pasta and sausage, continue cooking until pasta is tender. Taste and season with salt if needed.
  3. Serve with crusty bread and Parmesan cheese.
