This soup has become my and my husband's favorite soup! I am getting ready to make it for the fifth time this winter. The only thing I changed was using 3 cups of chicken broth in place of the water, omitting one can of tomato sauce and substituting another half cup of chicken broth, (3 1/2 cups chicken broth total) omitting the green beans and adding two more sliced carrots. I have tried dozens of pasta fagioli recipes over the years, (I'm seventy -one years young) and this is my keeper! Thanks for such a great recipe!
Love this soup! There's just the two of us and this makes enough that I can freeze some.
We love this soup!! We have this soup all the time. Thanks for sharing!
This is a hearty flavorful soup. Will definitely make it again. Saved the recipe as posted.
Our whole family really loves this soup which makes this recipe five stars for me (my kids are 4 and 7 and we are all rarely on the same page at dinner time). . If you are going to use ground turkey, make sure to use ground turkey breast otherwise the fat content is higher than if you use lean ground beef. I'm not sure why some reviewers think it's bland. The veggies really stand out in this soup. I would highly recommend using fresh green beans over frozen and I always add extra broth b/c the pasta soaks up a lot of the liquid and our family likes it brothy. Top it with parmesan, serve it with bread and yum. Great recipe!

I altered this by using ground beef instead of turkey and my family really liked it. Next time I will leave out the frozen green beans, those we hated. Even my picky 8 year old daughter ate this. Will be making again!!!

I love Pasta Fagioli ever since I tried it at Olive Garden. This is easy to make and has loads of flavor. I make this monthly in cool weather.
I always make the recipes as directed the first time & then decide if i would alter in the future. This looks like it will be so full of flavor but was very bland. we were trying to add every salt free seasoning we could at the dinner table but couldnt get this dish to have any taste. IF i tried it again i would take everyones advice & use some sausage & a flavored diced tomato. Too bad because it made a lot & looks delicious.
