MeMe’s Pasta Fagioli

Description

Cannellini beans, ground beef, and ditalini are simmered in a vegetable juice-based broth creating pasta fagioli similar to the famous Italian restaurant chain.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 thin slice onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 (32 ounce) bottle tomato-vegetable juice cocktail (such as V8®)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups ditalini pasta
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Instructions


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; saute carrot, celery, and onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir vegetable juice cocktail, chicken broth, parsley, basil, oregano, and black pepper into vegetable mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 20 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook ditalini pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  4. Stir cannellini beans and ground beef into soup; cook and stir until soup is heated through, about 10 minutes.
  5. Spoon about 1/3 cup pasta into each serving bowl; ladle soup over pasta.
