Pasta e Fagioli

{Pasta e Fagioli}

Yes, I'm still alive and kicking!
Just busy with life...blogging always takes a back seat to my family and loved ones
That said- it's nice to be back posting a recipe.
The weather turned cold here the past few days....so soup was on the menu plan.
We enjoyed the Olive Garden copycat of Pasta e Fagioli. 
It was very easy and very delicious!!!  I served it with homemade bread.
I hope you will enjoy!
