I like pasta fazool. Any kinda pasta fazool. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s American for pasta e fagioli, or pasta and beans. Sometimes I make it soupy, sometimes I make it not-soupy. This was not soupy.
While I boiled veggie pasta, I heated olive oil and cooked onion, garlic, and mushrooms. Also Italian seasoning.
I added that to the drained pasta and a can of white beans.
Okay, now, don’t get excited, Dan — this isn’t sliced chicken breast, it’s mozzarella.
Bake it at 350F until the mozzarella melts and browns, and voila! Pasta fazool!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What is your go-to variable dish?

Looks good! My go-to dish is mostaccioli. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and even Moo will eat her weight in it. Although, Moo doesn’t call it mostaccioli, she calls it “That stuff I ate half a pan of that one time? With the cheese?”

Mostaccioli looks good! We’ll have to have some of that sometime. Thanks for the idear!

That looks and sounds really good! I’m saving this one to try.
My go-to dish is just spaghetti with a meat sauce. I usually doctor up my favorite jar sauce add browned ground round, or crumble up meatloaf into and slow cook it in the crock pot. I’m a lazy cook these days.

Ooo! That sounds delish! Nothing lazy about that!

Not – A – Fan
My wife likes it, but no. I can’t…juts no.
It does look good. A for effort.

What do you not like about pasta fazool? The beans? What if it HAD been thinly sliced chicken breast?
Dan AntionMarch 16, 2017 at 1:17pm
@Marian Allen – Yeah, the beans. I’m not a big fan of beans. I eat them in chili, but I wish they weren’t there. I don’t like the mushy consistency of beans in general. It’s like eating paste. I call chickpeas “Paste-pods”

Charlie doesn’t like chickpeas, either. Boo hoo for me! He likes other kinds of beans, though, so go figure. “Paste-pods” — atsa funny. 😀
