Italian Bean and Pasta Soup

Italian Bean and Pasta Soup

Pasta E Fagioli, a favorite Italian meal in a bowl. It can be brothy or quite thick, depending upon personal taste. TIP--cooking the pasta separately from the soup helps the pasta maintain its texture. If you have made the soup in advance, add the cooked pasta when reheating the soup, as the pasta can become mushy if it stands too long in the soup.

This recipe contains beans (great northern, dried), olive oil, pancetta, onions (yellow), carrots, celery, garlic (fresh), chicken stock, tomatoes (plum, canned), salt, black pepper, pasta (shell), olive oil (extra virgin), cheese (parmigiano-reggiano)
