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

BORLOTTI BEAN MINESTRA by Staffan Terje

These classic Italian beans are a medium large tan bean, splashed with red/black to magenta streaks. It is very popular in Italian and Portuguese cuisine. They are also known as Cranberry beans in the US. If you can't find Borlotti beans, you can always use pinto beans.

This soup has been popular in Italian homes for over 1000 years, and it was…
