Pasta e fagioli (often pronounced “pasta fazool”) is a traditional Italian vegetarian dish made with pasta and cannellini beans. Like polenta and pizza, it was first popular among peasants because of its inexpensive ingredients and simplicity. Recently, as high quality ingredients are becoming more and more readily available, chefs are rediscovering these delicious flavor combinations. This is our interpretation of the classic, prepared simply and with the season’s finest ingredients.

Pasta e Fagioli with Cannelini Beans & Tuscan Kale ingredients
  • 6 Ounces Ditalini Pasta
  • 1 15.5-Ounce Can Cannellini Beans
  • 1 14.5-Ounce Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Stalks Celery
  • 1 Bunch Tuscan Kale
  • 1 Fennel Bulb With Fronds
  • 1 Yellow Onion

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Thinly slice the celery. Peel and small dice the onion. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Pick off some of the fennel fronds (the green, thread-like tops of the plant); roughly chop. Separate the fennel bulb and stems; thinly slice the stems. Halve the bulb lengthwise; remove and discard the core. Small dice the bulb. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves.

3 Make the garlic chips:

While the pasta cooks, in a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the oil in the pan. Season the garlic chips with salt. Set aside.

5 Add the kale, tomatoes & beans:

Add the kale, diced tomatoes, beans and 3 cups of water to the pot of vegetables. Heat the mixture to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low.
