Pasta e Fagioli (Pasta with Beans)

Spread the love

This is COMFORT FOOD. My family makes this dish more ‘in bianco’ with a kiss of fresh tomato. Lovingly referred to as Past’ e fazur’, it is a staple in the winter months. This is an affordable and filling meal packed with protein and nutrients. Made with simple and inexpensive ingredients, you can give your family a filling meal for very little money. That is the basis of “Cucina Povera”, but in my opinion what they lacked in monetary wealth, they had ten fold in love, gratitude and tradition….they were rich. Try my family recipe, I think you will love it!

Course Main Course
Cuisine Italian

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 lb Roman Beans, dry
  • 4 cups Water
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Fresh Tomato, diced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Chopped Parsley
  • 1 lb Pasta of Choice (I'm using Ditalini)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Soak the beans in cold water overnight.
  • Into a large pot, add beans and water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 1 hour. You can also pressure cook them for 20-30mins.
  • Add the beans in with the water it was cooked in. Now is the time to season with salt and pepper to taste. Add fresh diced tomato, whole garlic cloves, and chopped parsley. Bring the mixture up to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes to let the flavors marry.
  • Add the pasta and stir to coat. Then add about 2 cups of hot water or until the pasta is cover in water by about an inch. Stir occasionally so the pasta doesn't stick to the bottom. If the pasta dries out you can add more water depending on how soupy you like it.
  • Cook until the pasta is to your desired tenderness. Top with grated cheese, fresh parsley and olive oil and enjoy!
