This is a quick and easy meal my Mama called Pasta Fasul. The Italian name is really Pasta e Fagioli which is bean soup with pasta. This is wonderful on a cold day next to a nice warm fireplace. Ummmmmmmmmm good!
6 cups of chicken broth
4 to 6 clove of crushed garlic
2 15oz cans of cannellini beans
2 150z cans of crushed tomatoes
1 onion chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
3 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of red wine
1 box of elbow or ditalini pasta
Saute onions and garlic in a pot.
Add the broth, wine and tomatoes and oregano.
Add beans and reduce heat and let simmer for around 15 minutes.
Add pasta for around ten minutes until done.(adente)
Cover and remove from heat and let it thicken for around 30 minutes.
Serve with a nice bottle of wine and bread or toasted garlic bread.
