Directions

For the sauce: Heat a pot over medium heat. Throw in the bacon and fry until crispy. Take the bacon out of the pot and set aside. Fry the garlic in the bacon fat until golden, about 1 minute. Add the carrots, celery and onions, and saute until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Puree half the beans using a food processor, or mash with a fork, and add to the broth. Add the oregano, rosemary, brown sugar and season with pepper. Let simmer for 30 minutes. Add the rest of the beans and the basil, and heat through for 5 minutes.

For the pasta: In a pot, bring salted water to a boil. Throw in the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain.

Place the pasta into a big bowl, ladle on the sauce, sprinkle with the bacon and parsley. Top with Pecorino Pepato cheese.

    I make this soup all the time. My little one loves it. I do not use Canadian bacon, I use real bacon. I sometimes add a little more Carrot and Celery for a little more heartyness. I also use a mix of Cannelli beans and Great Northern sometimes. The Canneli beans are not available at Wally world. I also only use canned Petite diced tomatoes. Tonight I only had 1 can of beans so I added a little Ricotta for some texture. This is one of the recipes that I will make for a lifetime.
    Thanks Nadia.

    After watching the episode and reading the reviews and seeing the delicious looking picture, I was excited to make this dish. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its expectations. I found it to have a strange taste and the broth tasted flat..there was something missing, I just couldn't figure out what? It also wasn't as hearty as I thought it was going to be. I followed directions exactly so, I'm not sure what I did wrong. I won't be making this dish again. :(
