How to make pasta fagioli soup in the crock pot:

First, brown the ground beef and drain the excess grease.  We browned the beef in a multi-cooker slow cooker on the sauté setting but you can brown on the stovetop in a large skillet as well.

I also love my Ninja cooking system. It is pretty awesome because you can brown your ground beef or whatever meat you are cooking in the pot and then let is slow cook all day.

Next, place the beef, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beans, Italian Seasoning, thyme, salt, pepper and chicken broth in the crock pot.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Stir in the uncooked pasta for the last 30 minutes of the cook time on low.

Stir in the fresh parsley and serve warm topped with the parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

What goes with pasta e fagioli?

This soup is delicious with a simple side salad. We also love to serve it with some type of bread to dip into all of that delicious broth.

If you have a few extra minutes, this Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls Recipe is great with the soup. You can also pick up some breadsticks or French bread at the bakery if you don’t have time to bake any.

Time saving tip for slow cooker pasta fagioli soup:

We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

You can try all sorts of variations to this soup. Try using Italian Sausage instead of ground beef.

Cannellini beans are also good in this soup and go with all of the amazing flavors. This is truly one of our favorite soups.

The beef broth is slow cooked to perfection and simply amazing. If you want to spice things up a bit, try adding red pepper flakes. Yum!

Give this a try this week for a great meal that is easy and inexpensive to prepare.

Make sure you have a good crock pot to make pasta e fagioli soup.

Now you definitely need a crock pot for this recipe. I have two favorite crock pots.

I love my Ninja cooking system. It is pretty awesome because you can brown your ground beef or whatever meat you are cooking in the pot and then let is slow cook all day.

That means one more less pan to cook for most recipes. This has become my new favorite crock pot just because of that one feature!

I am all about making things easier around here and having less dishes to clean up! You can make this in the instant pot if you prefer.

I also love this programmable 6 quart crock pot. It is awesome and very nice on the budget.

I love that it will seal closed so you can transport it for parties and tailgates. This is such an awesome feature if you take your crock pot places.

Another time saving tip is to use Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze.

Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.

  1. 4 stars
    I tend to be picky about my pasta fagioli, but this recipe was pretty easy and tasted fantastic. It’s a lot of ingredients so maybe a little more cumbersome on a shopping day than preferred. Otherwise, awesome!

  2. Thus was absolutely delicious. My daughter loved it. So easy to make. Will set make this again.
