This comforting Pasta e Fagioli Soup is vegetarian and made with cannellini beans, ditalini pasta, veggies and lots of love.
This Italian classic soup is so comforting on a cold evening. Flavors in this soup are very simple so the whole family can enjoy it without being picky.
Little man and I love this soup and I often make it as a quick lunch. I would say that I make it just as often as Loaded Potato Soup and Zuppa Toscana, which are our favorites. If I want little man to eat well, soups and many Italian classics like lasagna, meatballs and pasta with pesto are my go-to dished for him. I’m actually realizing that I make so much more Italian food than I do Russian food. I do have a slight obsession with Italy and Italian food and my little man seems to favor it as well. Heart wants what it wants, right?!
I started making this soup a few years ago, and actually shared in on the blog but I’ve made a few changes to the original version. I needed to share this perfected recipe because everyone should try this delicious bowl of comfort at least once. There is nothing in here that you can’t love. Every bite has some pasta, white beans and veggies, infused with fresh herbs and garlic flavor. Parmesan cheese is always a winning addition.
