Pasta Fagioli

This one got pulled out of the "why don't I make this every night" file.  It's fall, it's chilly, and we're wanting something warming, soothing and ever so satisfying and boy howdy, pasta fagioli turned out to be the best possible meal for tonight.  I was so wishing I could just eat like 4 helpings, but alas, this is hearty fare, my friends.  It warms and comforts, but it also fills you up. In such lovely, homey and delicious sort of way.

I made a big salad and grilled some sourdough bread and I want to eat this meal all over again tomorrow night.
