Zuppa di Fagiolo

I needed a quick dinner which is odd since I was in the middle of a cooking storm (I pre-prepare dinners by putting ingredients together in one bag to add to a slow cooker or half cooked to finish cooking at a later date – all frozen & labeled and ready to go in my big freezer but that should be another post in & of itself since i get asked about it a lot). 

What to make, what to make……

I whipped together this soup which is loosely based on pasta e fagioli. Since it seems Italian-like, I simply named it Bean soup in Italian. It doesn’t have pasta in it so it’s not a minestra but no need to correct my name. This is just what i am going to call it.

This soup was super simple and is VERY low-fat and low-carb. By making sure the stock is a veggie stock, the dish becomes vegan. Very adaptable, very tasty, very cheap, and ready in less than 30 minutes form start of preparation to finish and eating.
