Copycat Olive Garden’s Pasta E Fagioli Soup

I don’t know about you but I LOVE Olive Garden!    Every time me and girl friends get together we always meet up at Olive Garden.   I always and always get the Paste E Fagioli Soup with salad.   Now now let’s not  forget about the bread sticks and a side of alfredo dipping sauce!   Great…now I  want need to go to Olive Garden!   I’m pretty sure we always pick here because we want to eat “light and healthy” and with soup and salad your set…right!  Well wrong for me because I say bring on the bread sticks and keep them flowing and make sure my alfredo boat is always full!!!

Now with the temperatures dropping and snow falling it makes me want to eat soup and I always enjoy making soup for dinner.   Especially cause it is so easy to make and its usually low fat and very filing.   Except if you have bread and alfredo sauce!

I got this recipe Pasta E Fagioli recipe of of  Pinterest and I forgot which blog so I apologize but I promise you all love this recipe!

Now if I can only master that alfredo sauce I would never have to go out to eat ever again.

  4. This looks so good! That’s one of my favorite soups at Olive Garden, as well. And I also have to have the breadsticks and Alfredo sauce. I didn’t used to like it, but my step-mom got me hooked when I was a young teenager.
