Copycat Recipe: Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli Soup (Slow Cooker)

Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli Soup Slow Cooker Copycat Recipe

Whenever we dine at Olive Garden, my spouse always gets the Pasta E Fagioli soup. I wondered if I could make this soup at home? Yep, I can! I also made it so that even a vegetarian could eat it. This means vegetable stock instead of beef stock and cooking ground beef on the side for the meat eaters to add into their soup.

This soup turned out wonderfully and it was nice to come home to meal cooked in the slow cooker!

    Thanks! You’ve saved me! I’m supposed to bring an Italian dish for a teacher dinner next week, and I was looking for something lighter, that I could do vegetarian. This is perfect!
