Pasta Fagioli - Recipe

Now that the weather is starting to turn cooler I have begun to make soup again.
There is nothing quite like a nice hot bowl to warm you up on those chilly days.
One of my all time favorite soups is pasta fagioli and I have never made any until this past weekend.
Mmm... it was a hit. I have enough for a few days this week and I froze enough for another lunch for me.
The soup is super easy to make and it has a wonderful flavor.
Go grab your beans, pasta, spices and enjoy!

*This is a bit thick since it sat from yesterday but it still tasted great!
