    Pasta Fagioli


    Recipe Description
    This is a very filling soup that my family LOVES. I'd compare it to Olive Garden's pasta fagioli soup but better IMHO. This soup does have a bit of a kick.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    8 hours on low or 4 hours on high
    Ingredients:
    1 pound lean ground beef, browned and drained

    1/2 large red onion, chopped

    1 cup carrots, chopped

    2 celery stalks, sliced

    2 cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes (and juice)

    1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

    1 can white beans, drained and rinsed

    4 cups beef broth

    1 jar (16.5 oz) pasta sauce

    2 tsp oregano

    1 T Tabasco sauce

    1/2 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp black pepper

    1/2 cup dry pasta, to add at end of cooking time
    Serves:
    A lot!
    Directions:
    Use a large crockpot, or cut the recipe in half. This makes a lot.

    Brown the meat on the stovetop, and drain well. Let it cool a bit.

    Chop up the carrots, onion, and celery. Add it to the empty crockpot.

    Drain and rinse the beans, and add them. (if you'd like you can soak beans overnight)

    Add the whole cans of tomatoes, and the pasta sauce.

    Add the beef broth.

    Add the salt, pepper, oregano, and Tobasco sauce.

    Stir in your meat.

    Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4. When the vegetables are tender, stir in the 1/2 cup of dry pasta.

    Cover and cook for another hour on low, or until the pasta is tender. It will swell quite a bit.

    Mmm this looks tasty! I have some fresh meat I need to brown so I think I'll do it for this and once I get some beans soaked and cooked (and stocked in my freezer), I'll be able to give this a go! YUM!!! I love this at OG

    Wow! I never made my fagiole in a crock pot. Never with ground beef either. I have to try this, it's much different.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    Had this for dinner tonight - YUM!!!!!
    We didn't have a red onion, but I used minced onions and some minced garlic instead..... and I added in about a cup of veggies I had in our freezer leftover from past meals I also substituted the listed beans for garbanzos and black beans because that's what I had in the freezer prepped to use. YUM!!!! My 2 year old devoured it, and my dd didn't but that's because she's a picky 4 year old "princess" LOL
    DH and I loved it! I can't wait for leftovers!
