I was in the mood for major comfort food so I made a big pot of Pasta Fagioli. Pasta what" Pasta Fagioli, technically Pasta e Fagioli, but I don’t speak Italian. I sure love Italian food though and this Italian soup made with pasta and beans is so delicious. It is one of my go to meals when I am craving comfort food. It always hits the spot! I also love it because it’s an easy weeknight dinner. You only need one pot and the entire family loves it, including the kids. Major win!
