Pasta Fagiolo Soup is one of my favorite rotations as it fits to be the main dish. It has all those amazing flavors that I love so much, it is packed, and one of the best comfort food that you should not miss. I make this more during colder months. It warms my soul, it gives me comfort, and I love a nice, delicious soup to fight off the cold. Pasta e Fagioli means pasta and beans, it is a traditional Italian soup that you can make in a breeze. It is a whole meal soup, therefore, I believe a must-have in every household. A seriously delicious soup that is heartwarming, healthy, and a classic. This hits the sweet and spice spot, but you can make it with or without Tabasco. But I like it with Tabasco, again it is all up to you. Have a bowl of this hearty, warming, filling soup in a breezy night.
