This classic Italian bean and pasta soup (pasta e fagioli) can be made vegan by substituting vegetable stock for chicken.
Used different ingredients. Change the name of this recipie to Easy and Delicious! Everyone loved this. I added garlic powder and a pinch of pepper flakes in addition to the ingredients listed. Can't wait to make this again. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Quite good, especially on a cool night. I too reversed the quantities of tomato sauce and chicken stock, and I'm glad I did. - 29 Sep 2008
Made it more kid friendly. Very good and similar to the recipe I have been using. My kids don't like to see a lot of beans in this dish. So, I reserved 1/2 cup beans and 1/4 cup chicken stock and pulsed in food processor to make the dish creamier. It also turns out lighter in colour. - 29 Sep 2008
