Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and allow to simmer until all the veggies are soft (approximately 10-12 minutes).

Now it is time to stir in the uncooked pasta and cook uncovered for 9-12 minutes until the pasta is cooked to the tenderness that you desire.

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 easy 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!

This copy cat pasta fagioli soup is frugal and delicious. 

This is the perfect recipe to stretch your meat budget. All of the tasty vegetables and beans help to stretch the ground beef.

Feel free to use ground turkey. We have even used a combination of both.  I often just use what I have in the freezer or what is on sale at the grocery store. We have even used Italian Sausage.

We love simple recipes like this. I keep recipes like this on the regular menu plan rotation because I know the entire family will enjoy these meals.

I cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning! Save that money for a family vacation or maybe just some wiggle room in the budget.

This is how I keep our grocery budget reasonable. By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget.

Pasta e fagioli soup is sure to be a hit!

    This pasta recipe is my very favorite recipe of over 60 crock pot recipes I have! It is hearty since it includes meat, beans & pasta! ( I use Italian sausage instead of ground beef which gives more flavor.) Served with a baby greens salad with cranberries, toasted almonds, & mandarin oranges, it is the perfect main dish for guests or just for your own family. Guests have given me many compliments & asked for the recipe. The flavor is unique. Ladle in some soup in each bowl, then mozzarella cheese, & then some more soup. Since the soup is hot, the mozzarella cheese will melt making it gooey & delicious. Completing the meal with the salad & cornbread, this meal will not be forgotten!
