Italian Soups

How to make an Italian Pasta Fazool

The old fashioned Italian pasta fazool.  Pasta e fagioli, pasta fazool or however you want to pronounce it, it still means love. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy this great Italian soup.

Serve with a nice Chianti and a loaf of fresh Italian bread and you’re ready to begin a great relationship. Truly this one is worthy to be served on you table!
