Excellent! Added1/2 cup more pasta, 1 cup more broth, pressed garlic. Used johnsonville chicken sausage Italian style with cheese. Second time making and I am adding chopped fresh spinach

I made it exactly as written but wasn't a huge fan. However, it does have potential if I were to make a few tweaks to the recipe next time. If I made it again, here's what I would do: Use ground chicken sausage (if possible), as the sliced sausage felt a little "hot doggy" to me OR pay better attention to which chicken sausage I choose (it has a large effect on the overall flavor of the soup), use diced tomatoes rather than stewed (or slice the zucchini larger), add a little more chicken broth and a little bit more pasta.

My fiance is a bit of a connoisseur of soups. After he practically licked his bowl, he officially named me the soup queen. My good friend also loved it and said it was amazing. Keeping this recipe!

I also agree this was a bad name for this soup. Not even close to an Italian pasta with beans soup... And who ever thought fresh basil comes in a tube. should really look up the meaning of fresh... Happy New Year to all you new wanta bee cooks... keep trying!

Not really a review. This is truly NOT Pasta Fagioli... no matter what anyone says. People deserve to express their opinions.

This soup comes together fast. It's both hearty and healthy. Choose the sausage wisely, it has a big influence on the flavor.

This is not Italian Pasta Figioli! Might be a lighter version but not something I would call my Italian favorite

Husband and I enjoyed this soup. Followed the recipe but used turkey sausage. Lots of flavor. A definite repeat.
