Recipe Ingredients for Pasta e Fagioli

1 cup tubettini pasta, dried
2 cups cannellini, cooked
1 carrot (cooked in with the beans)
1 stalk celery (cooked in with the beans)
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped (leaves from 2 sprigs)
3 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups water, reserved bean-cooking liquid
2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
2 tsp Olive oil, for drizzling

Recipe Directions for Pasta e Fagioli

  1. Fill a medium saucepan with heavily salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and boil until partially cooked, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Combine 1/2 cup of the cooked beans and water in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When oil shimmers, add onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, sage, and rosemary, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in tomato paste and cook until it caramelizes and melts in with other ingredients, about 2 minutes.

  3. Thin tomato-paste mixture with bean-cooking liquid, add remaining 1 1/2 cups beans, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Add pasta and bean purée to soup, and simmer until pasta is al dente, about 5 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper if necessary, sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano and a drizzle of olive oil, and serve.
