Every Italian family has their own version of Pasta Fazool which is macaroni and bean soup. Olive Garden's version to me ( yes, I am Italian) is more of a minestrone . Typically, you use pancetta or butcher cut thick bacon to flavor the broth. I made my version last night and it really is better the next day. I am not trying to be overly critical but my version is more like the one posted on Food and Wine magazine some time back. Good stuff! I also use the Italian blend seasoning if you don't have all the indivdual ones. No celery in mine... cannellini beans , broth carrots, onion , garlic etc. You enjoy whatever you like ..Mangia bene!

Ah, Pasta e Fagioli speaks to every Italian's memory of great family meals, made with love, that are hardy and filling, and full of flavor. This Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli Soup delivers on that memory in fine fashion. A rich hardy soup that is full of flavor and goodness. Just add some crispy Italian bread on the side and you have got yourself a dinner that your family will love.

If you use really lean ground beef, this delicious Italian soup is even much healthier than what you would find at a restaurant. You can cut down on a little bit of the sodium by using salt free tomatoes, and low sodium beans, which are available pretty much anywhere nowadays. I like to make texas toast or those frozen garlic knots with this for a quick and tasty cool weather treat!

This recipe will definitely satisfy my cravings. I can eat this during lunch together with whet bread, or even during snacks. I love Italian foods, so I guess this Fagioli Soup Recipe will be on my list of recipes to cook.

This recipe is a real find. I love to eat pasta e fagioli, and so does my family. We like Italian food, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy all the flavors in a steaming bowl of hearty soup. Warm slices of garlic bread would go well with this meal.

The recipe sounds delicious and nutritious and filling. I would probably change a few of the ingredients to suit our tastes and preferences, though. I would use ground turkey instead of beef or Italian sausage and use cannellini beans (which are white kidney beans) instead of great northern beans. This one is on my list to make really soon!

I've made another Olive Garden pasta fagioli copycat recipe. but this recipe looks closer to the real thing! I would make it without the beef to have as a vegetarian meal instead. I love that it's so full of vegetables too! If you can't find ditalini pasta any small tube pasta would work, even macaroni. I've even used orzo before which is really yummy too!

I love this soup from Olive Garden. It sounds so easy to make. Where do you find the ditalini pasta? I don't think I have ever seen it in the grocery store. I will have to look next time I go. I have never cooked with that kind of pasta. It is probably there and I am just not paying attention.

Have you ever heard of Barilla brand of pastas? I have two boxes of ditalini in the pantry right now. Walmart may have it but my local Food Lion and Publix should have it .

why is it some of your recipes appear on the first click on your home page, and than others you are sent to a page where it is (click on here for recipe) and I never get it to open up to the recipe,,,it does nothing...your recipes are great ones, but if you can not access the page where the whole recipe is , it is kinda defeating...What is it ,me or the page?

I made this recipe today with great expectations because of the picture that was presented and I had all the ingredients in my kitchen so I thought, if this is as good as it looks then I have a winner. Well, I have a winner...... my husband is the taster with the taste buds that will decide whether we will love it or leave it. Well, he absolutely loved it. So I froze it and will be serving to some relatives that will be coming by from Mich. on there way to FL. (we live in SC) and they will be served this soup on ther stay over. So now one of my dinners will be taken care of on their two night stay over. Thanks for a winner.
