Olive Garden Pasta Fagioli is a hearty bean and pasta soup served at Olive Garden. It’s an EASY, one-pot soup the family can enjoy right from home! The ONLY way I make Olive Garden Pasta Fagioli!

This is the hearty red soup that resembles “Italian chili” at the Olive Garden restaurant! Although, I like Zuppa Toscana this soup stands on the top to eat soups at Olive Garden. I love this thick bean soup with some freshly grated parmesan cheese–just YUM! It’s incredibly easy to replicate and everything is done in one-pot! The only way I make Fasta e Fagioli soup from scratch, at home!

    Is the amount of liquid in this soup enough? It seems small for that amount of ingirdients? Do you add in the liquid from the beans too , or drain the beans?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      This soup is on the chunkier side but it shouldn’t be overly thick. The tomato juices are to be used up but do rinse the beans from their liquid. If you try to keep the amount of ingredients according to the list, it should be a proportional amount of liquid.

        Thank you for replying back quickly. I plan on making this today If I get out to the store today. Where did you buy your pasta? I haven’t seen similar kind in my local store.

          • Alyona Demyanchuk

          Your welcome Olga, The pasta shown on the soup post was from a grocery store called Stop & Shop. Check major grocery stores near your area or even Walmart for Ditalini pasta.

    So do you put in dry pasta at the end and only cook it for 5 mins? Is that enough? Or is the pasta already cooked and then added in for the last 5 mins?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      You would cook the uncooked pasta for about 5 minutes since its a small kind. Just cut back the required cooking time for the pasta of your choice as long as its tiny, by a few minutes. It’s going to sit in a hot soup anyways so it’s better to undercook to aldente rather than over cooking to falling apart pasta.
