What is Pasta Fagioli?

Pasta Fagioli, which means “pasta and beans” in Italian, is a traditional Italian dish. It consists of simple ingredients like pasta, beans, and tomatoes, with variations that may include meat or vegetables. At Takeout Food, we’ll be making a version similar to Olive Garden’s, incorporating sausage and veggies to create a hearty and flavorful meal. However, feel free to omit the meat if you prefer a vegetarian option.

Minestrone Soup vs. Pasta Fagioli Soup

While both dishes are Italian soups, there are some differences between Minestrone and Pasta Fagioli. Minestrone is known for its variety of vegetables and generous amount of broth, while Pasta Fagioli focuses more on pasta and beans with a smaller amount of broth. Our Pasta Fagioli recipe adds a touch of flavor with celery and onion, enhancing the overall taste.
