Product Description

Net. wt. 10 oz.

From the old country comes the taste of the soup that fortified all of Italy for centuries. This is the soup that the Italian Kids grew up with. Pasta e Fagioli literally means pasta and beans. Moms made it as many ways as we make chili or stew in this country. This version is modified and altered to be a hearty soup that will satisfy all the taste buds from Italy to America. Try it with Mama Leone's Focaccia or Rosemary Basil or Leonard Mountain Tomato Basil Bread mix. Look for some recipe variations under the recipe tab.
