Easy Pasta e Fagioli
- 1 LB ground meat
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 Medium onion diced
- 3 stalks celery diced
- 3 carrots diced
- 1/4 cup parsley diced
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 32 oz Box chicken broth
- 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 24 oz Jar Spaghetti sauce
- 1 can Kidney beans-drained and rinsed
- 1 can cannellini beans -drained and rinsed
- 14.5 oz diced tomatoes
- 2 cups ditalini pasta
- In a soup pot or dutch oven brown ground meat . Once ground meat is done remove it from the pot and place it in a bowl and set aside for later. I put a power towel beneath it to absorb the grease .
- In the same pot add the olive oil and heat it up.
- Add diced onion, celery , carrots and parsley . Cook until the onions are clear.
- Add the chicken broth and Italian seasoning, bring the mixture up to a slow boil.
- Cook until the the veggies are done .
- Add the ground meat , spaghetti sauce and canned beans & tomatoes , bring the soup up to a boil. Depending on how thick your spaghetti sauce is you may have to add extra water. keeping in mind the pasta will absorb some liquid
- Add the pasta and simmer until done .
- Optional -serve with freshly grated parmesan
I’ve never commented about a recipe before, but Debbie nailed this! Ive made all sorts of soups all my life and decided i had to have Olive Garden’s Pasta e Fagioli. I had all the ingredients so i made it. It was amazing! Flavorful, rich broth easy to make, hubby and i both loved it. What’s not to love! Thank you.

Debbie — your pasta e fagioli soup looks delicious. BUT……..I can not find a “Print” button anywhere in this recipe (which is almost always included in miilions of other recipes on the Internet). Am I missing something here that is probably very obvious? (Or…….is this your way of insuring that you get more clicks, and therefore make more money from this recipe?) Why would you NOT want to make it easy for all of us Food Lovers to prepare your recipes, and to store a printed version of these recipes for future use??? Thank you. Mike B.

Please reach out if you have any other questions ..I want everyone to enjoy this soup Debbie *** Hi Mike I took your comment to heart and changed my recipe card to be a little more user friendly . There is a large green print button now .
We LOVE pasta in our house. Comfort food season is here. Just what I need to warm up on this very cold day.
This the perfect season for soup!!
I am truly amazed with how easy you make the whole process look when making something as comforting and delicious as this pasta e fagioli. I can’t wait to get to cooking now! 🙂
It is super easy , I hope you enjoy it Elaine.
I’ve been making a lot of soup these days (trying to use up all the stock I stockpiled in the freezer!) and this is one of our all time favourites!
I am so glad you like this soup , it is one of my favorites as well.
This pasta e fagioli was so perfect for this cold snap we’re experiencing here in Texas today. I didn’t have red kidney beans so I subbed white kidney beans for them and the soup was still amazing.
That sounds like a great substitution . I am so glad you like this soup. It is perfect on a cold day.
This was so good and so easy to make! I switched out the ground beef for ground turkey and it was amazing! Loved all the beans and veggies and I’m so glad my kids loved it because they got a ton of nutrients!! Delish!
I love comfort food, and this recipe did not disappoint. It was exactly what I needed. The flavors combined are amazing and go well together! I highly recommend this recipe.
I am so glad you liked this soup , it’s perfect during the colder months .
You’re right! So simple to make. Any meals with lots of veggies and beans get an A+ in my book.
I am so glad you liked it , thanks so much.
Added some freshly grated cheese and served with crusty bread! Made the perfect, easy dinner!
The crusty bread is a must!
Comforting, hearty and delicious! This soup was very easy to make and perfect on a snowy afternoon.
It is the perfect soup on a snowy day , I am so glad you enjoyed it.
Loved this soup! The broth is so flavorful and rich, and it’s so hearty with all the beans and pasta and meat. Definitely making this one again soon!
