...Pasta e Fagioli. One of my favorite places to eat is Johnny Carinos, and they had a Pasta e Fagioli that was excellent. It has been dropped from the menu, and I haven't found a recipie for anything like it. Their's was a white bean soup with a clear or slightly starchy broth, with ham and carrots. Does anybody have a recipie for something like this? Most I have seen on the web have been tomato based. Some sound really good, but just not what I am looking for. I am a lousy cook so I don't know where to start experimenting in figuring it out on my own. While I am a really bad cook, I am a world class eater, and would like to find a good recipie.
