    I make this many times during the fall and winter or just anytime I want a great soup !!

    Pasta Fagioli
    Courtesty Family Circle

    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 rib celery, chopped with leaves
    2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (I use jarred)
    1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
    1 tsp. dried basil
    1/2 tsp. dried oregano
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
    2 cans (15 oz each) canneloni beans, rinsed and drained
    1 pound ditalini (cooked; reserve 1 cup cooking liquid)

    1. Heat oil in large pot. Add onion and celery and cook over low heat until softened (about 7 minutes). Add garlic, cook one minute.
    2. Stir in tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, pepper flakes and beans. Bring to a boil. Lower heat; simmer covered for 20 minutes.
    3. Add cooked pasta an reserved cooking liquid as mixture should be 'soupy'.

    Top with Parmesan cheese if desired. 6 servings.
