I'm still determined to plow through every recipe in these books, so I tried their take on the classic Pasta e Fagioli. It's one of those dishes that every Vegetarian has thrown together dozens of times, and every time it's a little different. Some combination of pasta, white beans, tomatoes, garlic, spices. This version was equally delicious, and was a great way to use up the tomatoes I had sitting around. I'll be adding white wine to my Fagioli dinners in the future!
This might be a dish that was created centuries ago for peasants, and is definitely inexpensive to make. But it remains a great fallback recipe when you need a hearty, protein-rich Vegan meal!
