Pasta e Fagioli means "pasta and beans." It is a traditional healthy Italian soup that is loaded with aromatics, pasta, veggies, tomato sauce, and beans. This lovely comforting Italian soup is a perfect dish for a chilly night.
Heat the oil on medium then add the meat. Break it into small pieces and cook for about 4-5 minutes until it becomes brown. Transfer the meat to a bowl then set aside.
In the same pot, add carrots, celery, onion, and minced garlic. Sauté for 3-4 minutes or until the veggies become soft.
Return the minced beef back to the pot with the veggies. Add chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce, stir everything. Next add in the kidney beans, chicken broth, salt, ground black pepper and Italian seasoning. Let everything simmer for about 10 minutes.
Finally, stir in the pasta. Keep cooking until the pasta is fully cooked (about 10-13 minutes). Garnish with chopped parsley then serve.
