7-25-17 Pasta fazool (aka pasta fagioli)

7-25-17   Pasta fazool (aka pasta fagioli)

Beans and pasta is a go to dish in Italian-American homes.  What makes tonight's dish a little special are the tomatoes I used, purchased online from Ditalia .com.


1.     Penne pasta
2.     Cherry tomatoes
3.     Small white beans (Goya -  available in Paducah at Midtown Market)
4.     Olive oil
5.     Onion and garlic
6.     Fresh oregano, basil, and tarragon
7.     Sweet vermouth


Cook the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft, then add the tomatoes and fresh herbs and simmer for 20-30 minutes.  Add the wine and allow the liquid to cook off.
Add the beans and continue cooking over low-med heat while the pasta is cooking.
Add the pasta to the tomato-bean sauce, along with a splash of the pasta water and mix well. 


We really like this brand of tomatoes and try to keep some on hand in our pantry.  You can use any variety of white beans in this dish, and also add any vegetable you have available.  It is as easy to prepare as it is delicious.
