Pasta e Fagioli Soup

A delicious Italian origin soup filled with sausage, beans and veggies. Pasta e fagioli, means "pasta and beans" and is a traditional Italian soup.

Like many Italian favorites, this delicious soup started as a peasant dish, because it was made primarily with inexpensive ingredients.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Ditalini pasta

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage, casing removed

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 sweet yellow onion, diced
