Low-Fat Low Cal Crock Pot Pasta Fagioli

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Soak beans overnight.
  • In the morning (or do this step the night before) brown the turkey sausage and the diced onion.
  • Drain and rinse and put in the crock pot.
  • Add the broth, beans, carrot, herbs, salt& pepper and crushed tomatoes.
  • Cook on low for 9 hours.
  • Half hour before you think it is done, bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta to al dente.
  • Drain and rinse to cut down on the starch in your soup.
  • Stir the tomato paste into the crock pot and then fold in the pasta.
  • Cook for another 1/2 hour.
  • Serve in nice bowls with a topping of freshly grated Parmesan and maybe a sprig of basil.
  • ENJOY!

    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!!

    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.
