Modern Pasta Fagoili recipes use chicken or beef broth and a meat like pancetta or spicy sausage. I went the mostly veggie route, using chicken broth and 5 different types of vegetables: carrots, celery, onions, tomatoes and Swiss chard. The beans make the soup hearty and filling regardless, so just use whatever you have on hand. My secret ingredient is Parmesan cheese rind; it gives the broth amazing flavor. Just add the rind of Parmesan cheese when cooking then discard it when serving. Unless of course you want to eat it, I always do; it tastes like a chewy cheese crouton. Feel free to add in your protein of choice (like chicken sausage) into your bowl when serving.

Recipe Directions for Modern Pasta Fagoili

  1. 1. Heat some oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven on medium high heat. When hot, add in the onions celery and carrots. Cook about a few minutes, add garlic and some salt and pepper, then cook until onions are translucent, maybe another 5-7 minutes.

  2. 2. Add tomatoes and beans. Cook for a few minutes, then add the Parmesan rind, chili flakes, thyme and the broth (use your judgment so there's not too much or too little broth in proportion to the veggies -- remember the pasta is going to soak up a lot of broth later on).

  3. 3. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook from 30 minutes, up to 2 hours -- depending on how much time you have. The longer the better, but it will be ready to eat in about 30. Add more chili and salt and pepper to taste.

  4. About ten minutes before you are ready to serve, add in the chard (or any other greens you are using). Cook the pasta separately, not in the soup, and then add once it's done.

  5. Add some grated Parmesan and serve.
