Kristin, from IowaGirlEats.com, has a lovely recipe up over at her site for a mouthwatering Knock-off Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli Soup recipe. I’m a big fan of pasta e fagioli, as much as I am of minestrone. I love the tomato broths, the small pastas, and of course all of the hearty veggies I can muster up to throw in the pot. To me, that’s the icing on a cake of the soup set. (Bad metaphor, I know.)
I do recommend checking out Kristin’s website in its entirety, even if this soup isn’t your cup of hot broth. (Better? No? I’ll stop now.) You will love her colourful pictures, comfort food recipes and down to Earth approach to food and cooking in general. I really enjoy her posts.
