Pasta E Fagioli


I found the recipe in the Veganomicon Cookbook. I have never made Pasta E Fagioli before because it just sounded too simple. But, I had all the ingredients (I used linguine instead of tube pasta and garbanzos instead of white beans) and decided the simplicity of it sounded good tonight! I ripped up a few basil leaves for the top and sauteed some spinach in olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes to serve on the side.

Hi Courtney

This recipe sounds and looks delicious, but it is called Paste E Ceci. I like garbanzo beans very much and this was a staple for Friday (meatless day) in my mom's kitchen because it was my dad's favorite too. I love the way it goes together and the additional ingredients sound wonderful.

You are totally right! I didn't realize it but by changing the beans, I also needed to change the name of the recipe! I am thankful for an amazing Italian mother-in-law! xoxo
