Pasta Fagioli Soup
While there are a few more cold days before Spring arrives, you may want to try this delicious soup. I sometimes use 2 links of chicken sausage in place of the ground beef. It looks like a long list of ingredients, but it goes together quickly. If you don't like all the herbs, omit those that you don't care for. I hope you enjoy one of our favorite soups!
1 can Great Northern beans, drained
1 lb. ground beef, browned & drained
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans beef broth (I use chicken broth)
2 14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon, pepper
1/4 teaspoon, marjoram
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, optional
1 teaspoon, dried basil
1 teaspoon, dried oregano
3 cups of cooked small pasta, like ditalini
Combine all ingredients EXCEPT pasta, and put in slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Add the cooked pasta before serving & stir to combine. To garnish, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
