Excellent dish. Easy to make and very tasty. Added a little more water to make it more saucy. Next time I might just make it with 2 cans of V-8. Whole family loved it.

A very hearty soup. Great flavor and presentation the whole family liked it! Great for a wintery day!

I tried this recipe even though I wasn't sure I liked pasta fagioli and I LOVED it! My husband and other adult family loved it as well but the kids weren't crazy about it (the beans). I can't wait to make (eat) it again!
