This recipe is a MUST that I don’t want you to miss out on! It is so hearty and filling and I love everything about it.

I love that it has lots of veggies and a good amount of protein from the beef and the beens, I love that it has such a delicious Italian flavor and I also like that it has pasta to keep it filling – which makes it seem like a full on main dish and not just a soup.

After one bite I have the feeling this will be your go-to Pasta e Fagoli soup! And yes, it is actually even better than Olive Garden’s!

If you wan to make things legit you can serve this with Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks.

Yes indeed, it’s a match made in Heaven and basically the ultimate cold weather comfort food. But, if you don’t have time for the breadsticks (like I don’t most of the time) just grab some fresh French bread or crusty sourdough bread at the store.

And then to get the whole soup, salad and bread deal, grab a lettuce mix and the Olive Garden Italian Dressing (that they sell in grocery stores) and you’ve got what you’d normally have to go out for in the comfort of your own home.

Which you can eat in your pjs. On your couch. Without doing your hair or your make up. Meaning it was a lazy day and we all need those sometimes.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6
Calories: 356 kcal


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil , divided
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup diced carrots (about 2 medium)
  • 1 cup diced celery (about 3 stalks)
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced (1 Tbsp)
  • 3 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans low sodium chicken broth or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup water , then more as desired
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried marjoram
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 scant cup dry ditalini pasta
  • 1 (15 oz) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • Finely shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese , for serving
  • 3 Tbsp minced fresh parsley


  1. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat, crumble in ground beef or sausage and cook, stirring occasionally until cooked through. 

  2. Drain fat from beef then transfer beef to a plate, set aside. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in same pot. 

  3. Add onions, carrots, and celery and saute over medium-high heat until tender about 6 minutes, add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. 

  4. Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, water, canned tomatoes, sugar, basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram and cooked beef then season with salt and pepper to taste. 

  5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low, cover with lid and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until veggies are soft, about 15 - 20 minutes. 

  6. Meanwhile prepare ditalani pasta according to directions on package, cooking to al dente.

  7. Add cooked and drained pasta to soup* along with kidney beans and great northern beans. Thin with a little more broth or water if desired. 

  8. Allow to cook 1 minute longer. Stir in parsley, serve warm with grated Romano or Parmesan cheese.

  9. *If you don't plan on eating all of the soup right away I recommend adding the pasta to individual servings. Otherwise pasta gets soggy and absorbs too much broth.

  • Anonymous: Looks just great. And, when I substitute onion and garlic powders for the real thing, I will really enjoy it! Allergic to onions, and sensitive their cousin, the garlic. It takes me twice as long to eat the soup at Olice Garden, and I still pay for it when I get home. I will make it this week!!! November 28, 2012 at 3:36am Reply

    • Beverly: Onion powder is made from 100% onions, and garlic powder is just powdered garlic. That’s like saying you’re allergic to peanuts but you enjoy peanut butter. So it’s not an allergy, it’s an intolerance, or else you just don’t like them. April 4, 2018 at 4:33pm Reply

  • Sandy: I love this soup. When I make mine, I add a can of V-8 juice. It just gives it a little more flavor. Fresh herbs are much better if you can get them. I grow my own, so that’s what I use. Great recipe.

    • Jaclyn: Yes, I actually froze some of this once and it turned out great. And I had everything in mine and the pasta did absorb some of the soups liquid but it was still delicious. So like you said you could leave out the pasta and add later, I think leaving the beans in is fine though. I’m so glad you liked it as much as Olive Gardens! September 14, 2013 at 9:03pm Reply

  • Nick: Pastafazool is the easiest thing to make. Onions/garlic in a little olive oil. Add and brown some sweet or hot Italian sausage in your oil. Oregano/basil/garlic powder/salt/pepper. Then tomato sauce and some water. (No, I’m not stating any amounts as it depends on how much you’re making. You should be able to eyeball the amounts.) Bring to temp then simmer for about an hour. Taste for reseseasoning. Then add your cannellini beans and simmer about another 1/2 hour. No such thing as a “quick 15 minute pastafazool”. Cook ditalini pasta on the side then add shortly before serving. And NO, there are NO carrots or celery in pastafazool. January 5, 2016 at 1:22pm Reply

I am away from 7am to 6pm, so I set it for 6 hours on low then it goes to warm. Once home, I put it on high while pasta boiled. Once done, drained and put a scoop of hot pasta in bowl and then hot soup on top. Was delicious. March 1, 2016 at 1:19pm Reply

    What is tomato sauce? I assume you don’t mean spaghetti sauce like Classico?? Here in Canada we can buy passata. Is that what you mean? November 21, 2017 at 5:40am Reply

    • Shadeslove: Passata is fine it’s just a bit richer and thicker than tomatoe sauce. Might need to add a little extra water, so it’s not as thick, bit more in spices. February 11, 2018 at 2:38am Reply

  • eileen scotti: Awesome replica of one of my favorite dishes from Olive Garden. December 2, 2017 at 9:31am Reply

  • Lydia Sugarman: If you don’t want to buy all the separate herbs called for in this recipe, you could easily substitute Herbs de Provence, a classic mixture of herbs that are great in many dishes, especially Mediterranean dishes.

    We already have so much refined sugar in our diets that lurks in the most unlikely places, this recipe is fine without the added sugar. That’s something that dates from earlier times before the food companies started sneaking sugar into their products to make them more appealing and addictive. Many canned items, including tomatoes, tomato sauce, even beans can have added sugar! December 4, 2017 at 11:52am Reply

    • S Bond: I find it very ironic that your name is SUGARMAN!!! Lol 😂 February 1, 2018 at 2:49am Reply

    • Shadeslove: True about the sugar. It’s mainly used to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. I find in Italian recipes, substituting a bay leaf for sugar gives you the reduction in acidity that is needed without having to use sugar.

      Don’t know how many times I’ve been accused of putting sugar in my spaghetti sauce. For people to find out its a bay leaf. Works wonders try it some day. February 11, 2018 at 2:33am Reply

      • Wanda: Yes i totally agree, I use bay leaves in many recipes. Also a squeeze of fresh lime juice takes away the acidity.
        I add some celery and kale.

  • Geriann: I made this last night in my Aroma Rice Cooker, which is a knock-off of Instant Pot. Cooked the meat and veggies on the saute/simmer in pot then added the other ingredients as called for in the recipe. I had never made a soup in the Aroma and didn’t know how the settings worked, I was worried it was going to take forever to get the soup to a boil, but set timer for 20 minutes and it was rolling. I think you could actually save the time of cooking the pasta separately and add it to the pot directly and the pasta would get cooked. My husband loved it and went back for more!

    • Jaclyn: I love my Instant Pot! Thanks for letting me know it works! January 4, 2018 at 1:01pm Reply

  • Sara: I love this soup. I’ve made it several times. I usually only have ground beef and kidney beans on hand, sometimes add other veg like corn or green beans just to use things up, but the base I stick to faithfully. It will freeze really well, but as you say, add the pasta when serving or you’ll end up with mush. I once made the mistake of trying to cook the pasta in the soup… don’t do that! lol January 5, 2018 at 4:26pm Reply

  • sandra: I made this soup today and stupidly used mild sausage instead of ground beef. I followed the recipe exactly and I don’t like the taste of this and now I have a giant pot of soup just for myself.
    Even though the sausage was mild, it has something in it I don’t like and I should have remembered that I don’t like it.
    I’ll say this, the soup doesn’t taste like Olive Garden’s pasta Fagioli and it’s what I get every time I go there.
    Yuck. January 14, 2018 at 2:00pm Reply

    • Bonny: It is too bad you used the wrong meat and it made the soup taste bad for you. I really think you should make it using ground beef and see if it is better for you. Also three stars when it was your mistake. That is unfair to Jaclyn, and misleading to others who may hesitate to try it now. I used ground beef and my entire family loved this soup and can’t wait for me to make it again soon. March 17, 2018 at 11:50am Reply

  • Karen: My Italian husband gave this two thumbs up. I used mild Italian sausage and the flavor was amazing. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Would not change anything.

  • Shadeslove: Made with a few changes.

    No oil and I use 93/7 ground beef.
    Left out sugar, used a bay leaf while vegetables were cooking. Take out before serving.
    Used beef bullion with water instead of buying broth, can do the same with chicken buillion. Then left out the added salt, since bullion has a higher salt content.

    Was delicious next time I think I’ll double the recipe to share with friends.

  • Scott outtrim: Absolutely delicious, I ground some Angus steak as opposed to ground beef, I don’t like ground beef, I added a little hot sauce, I think that’s all I deviated from the original recipe and it is so delicious. thank you so much

  • Kelly: Do you think it would be possible to just add the dry pasta to the soup and let it cook rather than cooking it first separately? Trying to avoid more dishes haha. April 15, 2018 at 9:55pm Reply

  • Kathy: This soup was amazing! Didn’t think the recipe would feed 5 people, so I doubled it. Um… way too much, but we had leftovers for days. Can the soup freeze well if there are cooked noodles in it? April 21, 2018 at 10:32am Reply

  • Lisa: Wonderful recipe! …except the 104% per serving / daily intake of sodium. Yikes! I’m assuming the nutritional listings come from the canned ingredients being used. I easily substituted with fresh, frozen and canned versions of the no salt variety. Also, not sure why the recipe calls to add sugar. Unnecessary, It sweetens nicely from the sugars of the carrots. Always happy bellies in my Daycare when we make this! April 25, 2018 at 6:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Hi Lisa – There was an error on the nutrition card. Thanks for the catch! I have updated it and it reduced the sodium by half. Great idea to substitute as well! Hope you’ll give it a better rating with this new info! April 26, 2018 at 10:58am Reply
