Pasta Fagioli

Minestra di Fagioli  (Bean Soup). Growing up in our harried home there is no greater remedy for what ailed you than a big steaming bowl of my father’s Pasta Fagioli (We pronounced it Pasta Fajul). My sisters called it garbage soup.

Beans and pasta simmering in a big pot along with whatever else he rescued from that ancient fridge denying it a dignified death march to the large yellow plastic garbage pail.

Not unlike his legendary potato concoctions or his inexplicably delicious omelets – the Pasta Fajule was never boring and never the same thing twice.
