Pasta Fazul

READY IN: 50mins
SERVES: 8-10


  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • 2
    white onions, diced
  • 2
    large pepperoni, chunked
  • 2 -4
    garlic cloves, minced (depending on taste)
  • 1
    (24 ounce) jar marinara sauce (we use Borilla Roasted Garlic)
  • 24
    ounces water (I swish around the marinara jar)
  • 4
    (15 ounce) cans white beans (or Northern Beans)
  • 1
    teaspoon italian seasoning (to taste)
  • 1
    (16 ounce) box orecchiette


  • In a large pot brown onions, peperoni and garlic in olive oil (I toss ingredients in as I chop, starting with onions and ending with garlic so it doesn't burn.) until onions are translucent and almost cooked.
  • Add marinara sauce, water, beans (I add whole can but my sister-in-law drains them, personal preference) & Italian seasoning. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Will have a soup consistency. Simmer at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In the meantime, boil water and prepare desired noodles per box instructions. You can substituted spiral, macaroni, etc. Oreccheitte can be hard to find.
  • Serve fazul over pasta when ready to enjoy!
