This Pasta Fazool, Right Here #vegetarian

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?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    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?”

    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.

      What do you not like about pasta fazool? The beans? What if it HAD been thinly sliced chicken breast?

    @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. šŸ˜€
