pasta e fagioli | @wolfgourmet

Pasta e Fagioli is the ultimate comfort food. Commonly known as pasta ‘fazool,’ this tomato and vegetable based soup originates from Italy. Recipes will vary according to region, but the main ingredients are primarily the same: beans and short cut macaroni.

Here, Applewood smoked bacon is rendered into the broth lending a hint of sweet and smoky flavor. Aromatics including diced onions, carrots and celery are cooked until golden. To get ahead, keep a bag of these diced vegetables in your freezer; this soup will come together seamlessly for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Plus, stress less using your stainless steel 3 quart saucepan or 6 quart round Dutch oven for preparation. The heavy 7-ply construction promotes even cooking and prevents unnecessary burning and sticking.

This soup is rich, heartwarming, and incredibly easy to make. Any leftovers will freeze beautifully.

Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 2 slices Applewood smoked bacon roughly chopped
  • 1 onion diced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large carrot diced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 large celery stalks diced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic smashed
  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes preferably San Marzano
  • 3 cups organic low-sodium chicken broth plus more as needed
  • 1/2 cup ditalini pasta
  • 1 15oz can white beans such as Great Northern or Cannellini rinsed and drained
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  • In a 3 quart saucepan or 6 quart round Dutch oven, warm the olive oil over medi- um-low heat. Add the bacon and sauté gently about 5 minutes.
  • To the pot, add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Continue to sauté for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and chicken broth, and bring the soup to a rolling boil. Add the pasta. Simmer until the pasta is al dente, about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the beans and stir to warm through. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning with extra salt and pepper. If your soup is too thick, add more chicken broth until the consistency is to your liking.
  • To serve, portion the hot soup into bowls. Drizzle with extra olive oil and top with Parmesan cheese. If you have any celery leaves handy, sprinkle them over the top of each bowl.
