This is quite easy to make, plus filling and satisfying. I added extra garlic and I needed to increase the broth to 1 cup (maybe a little more) because there wasn't enough liquid to boil the pasta. Even with the extra liquid, the texture was still nice and thick. I think I'll add tomatoes in this next time. They would go nicely with the beans and pasta. Thanx for sharing!
