I made this tonight. I found it in the Todd Wilbur copycats from his" Top Secret Recipes 2" cookbook. It was delicious. I doubled the recipe and served 10 people and have a lot left over to make into lunches. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. This one is a keeper. The dicing and julienning get tedious but are WELL worth it. You will love it. I think it really is the real copycat. It tastes just like the Olive Garden version. By the way Great Northern beans are white kidney beans or cannelloni beans. Rachie P ,thanks for posting this so I could review it. Enjoy! ChefDLH
This is the best pasta e fagioli I have had so far. It is absolutey delcious!! This will be the recipe I choose each time I make this.
I make it all the time. It has become a family favorite.
Used diced rabbit meat instead of ground beef, one can tomato paste and 2 cans water for the tomato sauce, just carrots because I didn't have any celery. I don't know what kind of pasta that is - I used medium shells. I've never had this at Olive Garden so I don't know how it compares to that but my family really liked it.
We all really enjoyed the recipe. Nice hearty soup. Thanks for sharing.
This recipe is just awsome, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would,my family just raves over this when I make it. It may seem like alot of ingred. and work but it is not and well worth the effort to make.
This was so good! It's perfect for the coming winter too.
I have made this recipe for years and was going to post it if it wasn't already up here. No need to tweak to recipe, it's perfect! Think I'll make some tonite.....
