RECIPE: Pasta e Fagioli Soup

This soup is amazing! It takes on the flavor of the smoked sausage, and it's very hearty. My husband and kids are crazy for this soup (as am I). It's fast to throw together, so it's a go-to when I don't have much time to cook. And your house will smell amazing while you're cooking it ;)

Here is a printer-friendly version of the recipe!

Pasta e Fagioli

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 carrots, chopped (or several baby carrots, sliced)
14 oz. turkey sausage, sliced and quartered
1 (15 oz) can diced or crushed tomatoes
4 cups beef broth
4 oz. ditalini pasta
1 (15 oz.) can of red beans, drained
parmesan cheese for topping


Sauté the onion, garlic, and carrots in olive oil on medium heat until carrots are almost tender. Add turkey sausage and cook for a minute or two until it starts to form a light brown crust on the edges. (Reduce heat if needed, so as not to burn the garlic/onions.)

Add tomatoes and broth, and bring to a boil. Add the pasta, and reduce heat to a simmer. Drain and add the beans. Raise heat to medium high, and cook until the pasta is tender, about 10 minutes.

Serve topped with parmesan cheese. Makes about 4 servings.
