Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden.

(Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…
