#SoupSaturdaySwappers ~ Pasta e Fagioli Soup

Welcome to the April 2020 Soup Saturday Swappers event led by Wendy of A Day in the Life on FarmAre you interested in joining this great group of Soup Swappers? Request to join our Facebook group here. For today's event, Karen of  Karen's Kitchen Stories invited us to make a soup with any kind of noodle!

I have kind of been obsessed with Olive Garden's Pasta e Fagioli soup foreeevveerrr. It's probably what I get at least half of the time when we visit there (on our once or twice a year Olive Garden visits). I love the depth of flavor and combination of veggies, beans, and pasta in this dish. I have to say I was incredibly happy with how this soup came out - it definitely hit the spot! I just need to order some of the Olive Garden dressing and I can totally have a in-house Olive Garden experience.

Next time I will need to make a batch of copycat Olive Garden bread sticks to dip too... mmm....

Take a look at all of our delicious soups with noodles that we're sharing with you today!
