RECIPE: Pasta e Fagioli

This soup is amazing! It takes on the flavor of the smoked sausage, and it's very hearty. My husband is crazy for this soup. And your house will smell amazing while you're cooking it ;)



Pasta e Fagioli

2 tsp. olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 package smoked turkey sausage, chopped into small pieces (there are a lot of smoked turkey sausages available now, so any brand will do (I usually use Eckridge or Butterball--the package will have roughly 100 calories per serving, 7 servings per package).
4 cups beef broth
1 (15 oz) can crushed tomatoes
4 oz. uncooked pasta (ditalini is our favorite)
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed

Heat oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, carrots, and garlic until vegetables are soft. Add the sausage and cook until it starts to get a little golden brown crust. Add the broth and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and beans, and simmer until the pasta is tender, about 12-15 minutes. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.  Makes 4 (generous) servings.
