You Want to Eat This. Pasta Fazool with Sausage


Let's just be flat out honest. Who doesn't like pasta and Italian sausage? I could probably almost eat these two things every night. Terrible I know. Maybe it's because I'm Italian. Maybe it's because they go awesome with red wine (which I really do drink every night). Maybe it's because at the end of each day I am exhausted, starved and don't have time for any salad crap.

So in walks a hearty recipe and I swear it's somewhat healthy, look it has carrots! And I promise you will love it during the chilly winter months (which are apparently still here).

1 onion, diced.
1 or two carrots, chopped.
2 cloves garlic, minced.
1 can of Cannellini beans, rinsed. 
1 can of diced tomatoes.
2 springs of fresh rosemary
1 pound hot Italian sausage
2.5 cups chicken broth
1-2 cups pasta of your choice
Grated Parmesan cheese

Throw everything in the crockpot (except the pasta and cheese). Cook on high for four hours or low for eight. Cook pasta separately, then drain and stir into crockpot. Serve in bowls topped with cheese and a big loaf of bread for dipping.


PS. Mila loves this. So it's kid friendly. Bonus!

Every time I hear/see the word "fazool" all I can think of the song "That's Amore!" haha. This looks delicious, and since it's a crock pot recipe it looks like something even I can pull off! xo

that really does look so yummy! i am so happy that rice pasta tastes good these days (either because i have just gotten used to it, or because it's been improved upon) because i loooove a pasta dish, especially at night while watching a movie. eek i know that's so bad - but it's soooo good.
