Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pork fat back
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 prosciutto bone (ham bone is ok)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup cannellini beans, soaked overnight, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 pound dry whole-wheat fettucine, broken into short lengths

Directions

In a large pot, heat the fat back over medium heat. Add the carrot, onion, celery, garlic, parsley, and bay leaf and cook over medium heat until the garlic begins to brown. Add the bone and enough water to cover it, season with plenty of salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Add the beans and cook for 1 hour, then add the pasta, cooking at a boil until the pasta is tender yet al dente. Serve immediately, divided evenly among 4 warmed pasta bowls.
