Homemade Pasta Fagioli


  • Cooked, chopped ham (About 2-3 cups or as desired)
  • 1 diced/chopped onion
  • 3 or 4 chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 large can of  crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
  • 1 box of chicken broth (40-48 oz) 
  • 4 cans of white cannellini beans (15 oz each)
  • 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb Box of Ditalini pasta 
  • Crushed red pepper as desired (about 1 teaspoon)
  • Salt & pepper as desired

Let’s get to it: Homemade Pasta Fagioli

Saute the onion, garlic and crushed red pepper for 2 minutes on medium-high heat. Add the ham. You can use ANY type of cooked ham! A cooked spiral ham is typically our favorite, but you can also used 2 ham steaks. 

Blend or puree 1 can of the white cannellini beans. Add to the pot and mix well. Take the remaining 3 cans of white beans and throw into the pot WHOLE. Add chicken broth, Parmesan cheese and crushed tomatoes. Mix well. Add seasonings to taste or as desired.

Simmer on low-medium heat for at least 1 hour. In a separate pot, boil water and throw in the Ditalini pasta! Boil for about 8-10 minutes. Strain and keep set aside. It’s best to serve separately so the pasta doesn’t soak up the soup. Serve with a warm loaf of Italian bread and ENJOY! This will NOT disappoint mommas!
