Pasta e Fagioli

Source: Everyday Food, December 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 celery stalks, diced medium
  • 2 carrots, diced medium
  • 1 small red onion, diced medium
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 sprig oregano
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 Parmesan rind (optional), plus 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan for serving
  • 1 cup small pasta, such as ditalini
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

Directions

  1. In a medium heavy pot, heat oil over medium. Add celery, carrots, onion, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 9 minutes. Add oregano, tomatoes, broth, and Parmesan rind (if using). Increase heat to high and simmer rapidly until liquid thickens slightly, 5 minutes. Add pasta and cook, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Add beans and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes. To serve, remove rind and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan.

    a m a z i n g, I cook alot and this just hit the spot. Filling, we went back for seconds and had some country rolls with it. I did double up the salt and pepper, I used a Gruyère rhin and worked perfectly. Yummy

    I made this tonight and it was so good. My kids and husband all really enjoyed it. Great for a cold rainy day like we had. Will definitely be making this again soon!

    I doubled the recipe so that I would have plenty to freeze in containers to take to work for lunch. I used only one parm rind. The taste was excellent! Even better that it's under 6 grams of fat per serving!
