Pasta e fagioli or pasta and beans is pure comfort, and inexpensive to boot. The pasta in this hearty vegetarian soup continues to absorb liquid as it sits, so you may have to thin leftovers with some more water or stock.
Pasta e Fagioli
Deep-fried chickpea croquettes called falafel are a Middle Eastern specialty and are also a popular street food in Canada’s urban areas. Here we form falafel mixture into patties instead of croquettes and reduce the fat by frying in a nonstick pan.
Pasta and Bean Soup
PC 8 Vegetable Cocktail is your short-cut to a fabulous soup, brimming with vegetable flavour. Whole wheat pasta and beans add fibre and make this a meal.
Pasta with Zucchini Rounds
A wonderfully fresh pasta toss that can be made year-round. Coarsely grating the Parmigiano creates lovely melting bits in the finished dish.
