Quick Family Dinner

Quick Family Dinner

Pasta and Beans is a quick and flavorful dish that is perfect for weeknight dinners. Don’t let the simplicity of this dish mislead you, it is a very hearty authentic Italian meal.
Pasta and Beans, also known as Pasta e Fagioli, was a staple in my grandmother’s life when she grew up living in Italy. It is also the same dish that was passed down to my mother when she grew up. It has become one of those dishes I love to make on a cold day, wearing my comfy clothes, relaxing on the couch in a warm blanket wrapping me up and eating out of a big soup bowl. Yum Yum
