If you can't find the dried cannellini beans, dried navy beans or great northern beans would work just fine here. And it is perfectly acceptable to use the canned, just as long as you rinse them well. Most Pasta e Fagioli recipes are made with ground beef or sausage, so it's nice to see a vegetarian version. Since it only calls for 1 oz of butter, I think you could easily substitute vegan butter and make this vegan friendly as well!

I am such a fan a beans and this is a great recipe and cannelinni beans are probably my favorite. This is such a great way to eat them. Pureeing some of the beans if a wonderfully tasty way of thickening the broth. Adding the pasta transforms the dish into a hearty and filling meal, full of flavor and sprinkling parmesan on top is the final delectable touch. Bon Appetit!

I seem to recall having something similar in an Italian restaurant (Olive Garden, perhaps?) and I'm really glad to come across this recipe. For some reason, dried cannelini beans are difficult to find around here, though the canned ones are readily available. I'd like to try this with the dried beans since that's supposed to give it a different and better taste than the canned beans. Thanks for posting this one!
