    I developed this to have a nice tasting, but fairly low fat/calorie pasta dinner. Not necessarily traditional, but very tasty. Use enough broth to make it as thick or thin as you like it.

      Yummy! This was so good and so easy to make. I used a can of great northern beans instead of using dried beans that soak overnight and they tasted so good I think I would add more next time. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of oregano and 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil instead of 1 teaspoon of italian seasoning. I also added 1/2 cup of peas for color (I do that with everything.) I garnished with fresh basil which was very yummy. I will make this again and again. For garlic lovers, I'm sure a clove of crushed garlic would be an excellent addition. Thanks again!

      Very good family meal. I made a few minor changes to the recipe based on what I had on hand. I used dried lima beans, baby carrots and instead of Italian seaoning used 1/2 tsp basil and 1/2 tsp oregano. I also used garlic salt instead of regular salt -- very good pasta dish that we all enjoyed. Thanks for sharing! We will be having this again soon.

      I love Pasta Fagioli but the recpie I have used was high in fat. This recipe was very good. I did make a couple of changes. I like to use ham instead if sausage. So I used some leftover smoked spiral ham. I also did not use the tomato paste at the end because the noodles absorb a lot of the juice and I was afraid it would be too dry. Next time I will add more broth because I prefer it soupy and the tomato paste. I look forward to making this again. It is a great winter meal!!
