I have a great recipe at home--I'll try to remember and post it either later today or tomorrow.

Welcome to the group Tracker!!!!

Like most Italian recipes - the "authentic" one depends on which "authentic" Italian grandma you get it from.

You might want to check variations that are not from Lidia .... at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...asta+e+fagioli

Italian recipes can be hard to find sometimes because they are not exactly when you experienced ... part of the beauty of Italian cuisine and what can drive you crazy trying to find a recipe ...

We make it by cooking beans like you would normally cook beans, then cooking the pasta inside of the liquid you cooked the beans in. Really, its that simple. Thats the pasta fagioli I grew up with :D. They also do a variation with lentils.
