Copy Cat Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli

Save the budget and warm up with this Copy Cat Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli

It’s cold outside and I love having a nice hot bowl of soup to warm me up.  What is better than the delicious Pasta e Fagioli soup from Olive Garden. We don’t go out often but I love the Soup, Salad, & breadsticks from Olive Garden! YUM!


The most time consuming part of this soup is chopping and sautéing the vegetables. I decided to let me food processor do most of the work when it comes to the chopping.  Then I just sautéed the veggies, added in the other ingredients and the browned sausage, and let simmer.

Serve this yummy soup with some 30 minute Dinner Rolls and you have a super supper!
