Pasta e Fagiole, meaning “pasta and beans” is a traditional Italian soup that started as a peasant dish, made from inexpensive ingredients. Our version uses white beans, pasta, a mix of vegetables, herbs, and richly flavored Parmesan cheese. This easy soup uses tomato paste and chicken base to provide savory depth, but you’ll definitely need to let the boiling water stand for five minutes to let those concentrated flavors permeate throughout the rest of the soup and flavor the vegetables, pasta, and beans. Make sure to use a container with a tight-fitting lid that can also handle the addition of boiling water.
