Easy Pasta e Fagioli

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen12 Comments

Over fall break I took my children to Olive Garden for lunch. They fell in love with the Pasta e Fagioli dish that they serve there and have been asking to go back. Now because I am cheap…. a WHIZ in the kitchen, I instead decided to do what I do best. To come up with an easy to pull together dish for a family favorite in a uniquely Jen way. This dish is perfect for winter and seriously takes only about 30 minutes to pull together!

  1. My dad always loved Pasta e Fagioli. So, my mom has made it so many times over the years. But can you believe I never made it myself? I am so going to give your easy recipe for it a try now. So, thanks so much for sharing and pinned to refer back to your recipe when I make now ;)

  2. You’re a whiz for sure! This is definitely one of my favorite types of meals. Scarlet went to Olive Garden for the first time recently and loved it so I know she’d love this.

      I know right?! How had I never taken kids there? Probably because it is like taking an army out to eat and we avoid that at all costs :) Glad Scarlet is an OV fan!
