Pasta Fagioli

love pasta fagioli.
am thinking of making it when we return.
just found this but I've changed it a bit to my liking.



"Pasta Fagioli"
  • 1 small carrots chopped small
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 celery stalk chopped fine
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced thin
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 t dried parsley
  • 1 t dried oregano
  • 1 t dried marjoram
  • 1 t dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 can chicken broth OR 1 chix boullion cube and 1 c H20
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes in juice [with basil] the size cans are the smaller ones down from 29 oz so are they 14 oz? probably a little larger than a typical soup can size
  • 1/2 can tomato sauce so 4 oz.
  • 1 c baby conck or elbow pasta [uncooked]
  • 1 or 2 can[s] cannolini beans drained/rinsed
  • Butter and oil in skillet to melt, add beef, break up, cook pink out then add...carrot/onion/celery/garlic, cook to wilt about 4 minutes, add spices, stir, add broth/tomatoes w/liquid/tomato sauce/pasta/beans and stir to combine. Check/taste for seasoning, cover, simmer on low until pasta is cooked about 20 minutes then stir in 1/2 t fresh rosemary chopped fine, cook 2 minutes longer. Spoon into a bowl and shred shards of parm cheese on top.

It looks awesome LEFSE - I've got it copied and saved. There's nothing better on a cold Sunday afternoon.

the original recipe called for more, but I felt the same so cut it back to only 1/2 lb or could be less I suppose, cause I haven't either, but sounded good to me. Could omit it altogether too Buckster, that'd be fine too............ Hey Buck, check your pm.

auh, thanks {{{Miss V}}}....................

I am going to guess at 14 oz. - I feel very safe in saying that.
