Pasta e Fagioli Recipe


1 large sweet onion peeled and halved crosswise
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 large can Italian Plum Tomatoes (use potato masher on tomatoes)
2 basil leaves
1 small can tomato paste
1 can Cannellini beans, drained (Great Northern can be substituted, but Cannellini are best)
1 pound cooked and drained shells–very al dente


There are many different ways to make this dish, but here is the meatless recipe I like best. Put onion cut side down in oil and cook ’til oil begins to simmer then add tomatoes. I use a potato masher on tomatoes to break them up.

Add basil leaves and tomato paste

Simmer for 20 minutes. Stir. Simmer for another 20 minutes. You can either discard the onion at this time, or slice it and add it back to the sauce. Add beans and drained shells

Let cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with salad and good Italian Semolina Bread and don’t forget the red wine!
