Pasta e Fagioli ala Weeble

Recipe by  

"As a Canadian, growing up in Toronto's Little Italy, this soup was always on someone's stovetop somewhere in the fall and winter months. Pasta, beans, and a thick broth, sprinkled with Parm or Romano, and served with fresh crusty Italian bread - what's not to love? I spent a lot of time, back in the day, in the cucina with my friends and their mothers learning the basics of good Italian food!"

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat; stir in the ditalini, and return to a boil. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 6 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; stir in onion and bacon and saute until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir garlic into onion mixture; cook over medium-low heat just until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir chicken broth, beans, tomato paste, and chile pepper into onion-bacon mixture; bring to a simmer and cook until fully heated through, about 10 minutes. Stir ditalini and parsley into the soup; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each serving with Romano cheese.

So close to mine that I had to try this soup. It is very good, I added ground chicken meatballs, cause we like some meat in soup. I used grated goat cheese(lactose intolerant). Very nice flavor, no leftovers. Thank you weelbe for this tasty soup..

Woo-we - this is a great dish! Knowing from the ingredients that we would like it, I made a double batch. After 3 stores, trying to find something called Romano beans, I googled it and found out that a flat Italian green bean could be subbed for the Romano beans. I could not find them in a can, but I did in the frozen section. I still would like to find the real thing and make this again. It was very filling and delicious on a cold, snowy, April day. It was my first time for using ditalini pasta and I bought my first block of fresh Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to grate on the top before serving. weeble, this is a delicious recipe, that I will for sure be making again.

I had two issues with this. 1. I had a hard time getting the bacon to crisp while cooking with the onions. I finally pulled the bacon out and sautéed it. 2. I'm not sure how pasta e Fagioli is supposed to taste but this tasted a lot like bean and bacon soup. It was very filling and not a bad just not my taste.

I loved everything about this recipe: ease of preparation, flavor and heartiness. We thought this was comfort food at its finest.

This was nothing like I have ever had in regard to pasta fagioli soup. The flavor was so good. Subbed turkey bacon and added basil instead of parsley. Wow Weeble this was good.
