Saute herbs for a pasta e fagioli

Add rosemary to a pasta e fagioli dish

Cooks wondering what culinary herbs might add excitement to a pasta dish could try sauteing rosemary, thyme and a bay leaf for a pasta e fagioli.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recommended this recipe in the Guardian and explained "it's easy to fall for this gutsy soup".

"Dean Martin crooned - when the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool, that's amore - using the American-Italian slang for this dish," he explained, adding the delicious simplicity of this dish made the analogy a good one.

Preparation involved heating the rosemary, thyme and bay leaf in a pan with oil before adding carrots, celery and garlic.

Bacon was then introduced with slightly mashed tomatoes, beans and stock.

A cupful of the vegetables and beans were removed to be pureed in a blender before being returned to the heat and seasoned with the rest of the ingredients.

Fearnley-Whittingstall's serving suggestion was to pour the meal into warmed bowls and stir in grated parmesan.

Food writer Rose Prince recently shared a similar pasta e fagioli dish with pancetta twists in the Daily Telegraph.
