Pasta Fagioli

By: DairyFreeGina

Dairy Free Vegan Gluten Free

Pasta Fagioli is a hearty, stick to your bones type of soup. It is easy to make and uses items right out of your pantry. Make this soup gluten free by using a gluten free pasta. Fresh or canned tomatoes are equally perfect for this recipe.

Note: Avoid cooking the pasta in the soup as the soup will become overly thick and gooey. Cook the pasta separately, and then add it to the soup when serving. Don’t overcook the pasta. Make it al dente (which means “to the tooth”)
