Pasta e Fagioli Italian Soup Recipe

Olive Garden Copycat Pasta e Fagioli madeinaday.com

One of our favorite soup recipes is Pasta e Fagioli. My husband can’t get enough of The Olive Gardens version of this hearty soup, so we searched the web to find a great knock-off version.

We came across what we think is “the best” recipe by Todd Wilbur of Top Secret Recipes. But of course, we had to tweak it for our own taste, so here’s our adaptation of his version. #copycat

  1. Vinegar, huh? I never would have thought that would be an ingredient!

    Pinning and making this for my mother! We don’t have an Olive Garden near us and she loves this soup. 😉

    Thanks so much for sharing at Show-Licious Craft & Recipe Party! Join us again on Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST.

    1. Yes Vinegar, I do not know why it’s in there, but it’s in the original recipe, so we left it in. It really is a great soup I hope your mother likes it.
