Recipe Fact
Fagioli is the Italian word for "beans". It refers to white kidney beans, which are also called cannellini beans.
Ingredient Substitution
Red kidney beans or great northern beans can be used in place of the cannellini beans.
Healthy Hint
All beans of this type are excellent sources of fiber and protein.
Serving Suggestion
A crisp salad of shredded greens tossed with Italian dressing goes well with this hearty pasta. Grissini (long and thin crisp Italian breadsticks) and melon wedges complete the meal.
