Ditalini with beans

Cook Ditalini til done, drain, put ditalini back in same pot, add can of dark red kidney beans, can of diced tomatoes-garlic-onion. I also add small amount of tomato sauce. Heat all throughly. Serve in a bowl, topped with Parmesan Reggiano cheese. Crusty bread or garlic bread optional.

It's the same dish, soup with beans and pasta. Fagioli is the correct word. Fazool is a "modified" version of the word that probably came about from an Americanization of the Italian word.

Actually mine is not soup. I made mine like my mom used to, with the pasta, beans , diced tomatoes and tomato sauce.

I realize that and your dish sounds delicious.

I was responding to the question on pasta fagioli. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

This is the way I've made pasta fazul. Lena's Pasta Fazul - Allrecipes *. Sounds a lot like Ladycook's recipe.

I always thought pasta figoli was bean soup and pasta fazul was beans and pasta.

(I didn't mean to hijack the thread, Lady. Pasta fazul is just what I call your recipe.)

* I add country style spare ribs to my big pot of pasta fazul, for a REALLY hearty meal! My friend's Italian mother makes hers that way, but she uses canned vegetarian baked beans.

The beans. It's all about the beans. What type of.
I HATE beans!
I have nightmares about beans. Sorry, LC. I'm sure this is very healthy for you, but I just can't do it. Thanks for posting for those who enjoy them though.

I didn't use the recipe, just threw stuff together I had on hand. Also I use Dark red kidney beans . It seems most of those recipes use cannelli beans. That recipe link you post sound good .

String beans I'll do. Especially right off the vine - but then they aren't really beans since your eating the casing too. And jelly, of course. But anything from lima to navy to kidney to baked and anything inbetween.......YIKO!!! I know I should as they're a great sorce of zinc, and my chiropractor told me years and years ago I'm deficient so I should take supliments. But even the tablets are stinky!

I don't like all beans. I dislike Lima beans and baked beans.

Sounds wonderful. Sort of like minestrone without all the green veggies.

If we're counting jelly beans as "beans", I'm all OVER that one!
