I had been trying to find a recipe to re-create one we had at a restaurant in Rochester NY, and this one is just as good. I used dried basil flakes instead of fresh, but followed the recipe as written. It is a winner and will now be a "go-to" recipe for me.

This was just the Pasta Fagioli recipe I've been looking for. Most recipes have tomatoes in them. Was just like my mother-in-law used to make. Thanks!

Wonderful soup! I had to cut the carbs (way too high for my diabetic health), so I used smaller cans of beans and half the ditalini. It was delicious, even better than the tomato version! I'll definitely be making this again. Made for Please Review My Recipe. Thanks for posting a great recipe Ed & Theresa!

This was good, but there was WAY too much pepper called for. And we like spicy food. We did add diced tomatoes. We are used to Pasta Fagiole with tomatoes and did not want to deviate. However, we loved the addition of wine and prosciutto. Very good...will make again with a LOT less pepper.

Hearty, creamy, rich and delish! I did double for a crowd. I added 2 cups tomato sauce, pepper flakes and lots of garlic. Thanks!

So easy, and so much flavor. As a veg*n, I skipped the prosciutto, and with so few ingredients, wasn't sure if I would have enough flavor. But not to worry...it did. This was so easy because there is almost no prep time.
