Pasta Fagioli (FAZOOLE!) A Quick and Simple Version – Episode 148By
Everyone loves a good pasta fagiole and most people like a bad one. Well this is a pretty darn good one and it is simple and easy to make-There are more versions of this classic dish than you can shake a stick at, while I do not really get that whole stick shaking thing I do get pasta fagioli. Just to add to the confusion I threw in some celery and carrot something I do not normally add not is usually found but what the heck the wife is eating for two so she needs the extra veggies.
Many recipes call for tomato or tomato paste and some have no tomato all together-Some call for using rosemary- something I do not use as I feel it overpowers the dish. In reality if you have pasta and beans and a way to marry them well you have a version of pasta fagioli.
