This is one of my staples for lunch or for dinner on a cold evening...very easy to make, and great with a piece of crusty Italian bread. I follow the recipe exactly, no changes. Be sure to use fresh rosemary, it makes a big difference.
Quick Pasta e Fagioli With Parmesan
Pasta e Fagioli is a classic, meatless Italian dish. Make a quick version to serve on a chilly night with fresh Parmesan cheese.

- Andrea's wine pick: The bold flavors of capers, tomato, and rosemary demand a wine with vivid acidity and savory-fruity flavors. Santa Christina Sangiovese from Italy ($10.99) does the job well.
