I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pasta e Fagioli

That's Pasta Fazool to you and me! Unless you're Italian than it IS Pasta e Fagioli...pasta and beans!

1 cup ditali pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lb Italian sausage meat
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup diced sweet pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup diced carrots
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup meat marinara sauce or tomato sauce
14 oz canned diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp each basil, oregano and thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
19 oz white kidney beans, drained

Cook the pasta, drain and toss with a little olive oil. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot. Add the sausage meat, breaking it up as it browns.  Add garlic, sweet pepper, onion and carrots and cook a few minutes to brown the onions. I used orange sweet pepper here so it looks the same as the carrots.

Toss in the broth, marinara, diced tomatoes and seasonings and cook until carrots are tender.

Add the kidney beans and cooked ditali and stir until heated through.

Even better served with parmesan cheese.

Serves 4-6
Buon Appetito !
