This is a very healthy and satisfying dish: cannellini beans, tomatoes and pasta. I like the garlic to have a strong presence but you can adjust it to your own taste.
I had never eaten pasta fazul before but my boyfriend is Italian and always spoke so lovingly of his grandmother's version. So I tried this version, and... It tastes very healthy. And not extremely flavorful even as leftovers. But if you want a huge pot of healthy tasting pasta and beans, this is great. - 18 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Easy, Basic ingredients, Healthy and Filling! And the best bit is both husband and son liked it...I mean my 6 year old son ACTUALLY ate it! This is a boy that does not combine food together, like veggies or beans in pasta...This time he picked out the beans but then reluctantly ate them anyway. I only made this because I had the ingredients and was feeling lazy. Will make again, definitely. By the way, I added a bit of smoked bacon, because I had it. They both noticed that flavour and liked it...a lot. Still would be good without. - 24 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Good, hearty pasta dish. My kids liked it. WAY more than 5 svg for our family, more like 8. Paired well with a fresh greens salad and garlic bread. Not a soup though as the play off of pasta fagioli might suggest. - 12 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
