I just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. It is an absolutely beautiful country and the people are amazingly kind. My only complaint is there is not a lot of vegan food.

I have always loved Pasta Fagioli but the restaurants there used chicken broth for a base and usually included some type of meat.

After I returned home and stocked up the refrigerator I created the following recipe. You can eliminate the Tofurky Spinach Pesto Sausage but it does add a lot of flavor to the dish.

ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 Tbl. garlic crushed
  • 14 oz. Tofurky Spinach Pesto Sausage, sliced
  • 5 large basil leaves chopped
  • 28 oz. cannellini beans with juice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper or more to taste
  • 1 Tbl. Oregano
  • 1 Tbl. Reduced Sodium, Better Than Bouillon Vegetable
  • 14 oz. Can Diced Tomatoes, with Basil & Garlic
  • 1 Head kale stems removed

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil and saute onion and garlic for 3 minutes or until onion is translucent. Stir often to make sure garlic does not burn.
  2. Add sliced Tofurky and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in Basil and Cannellini Beans, along with juice from can. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in Salt, Red Pepper, Oregano, Vegetable Bouillon, and Diced Tomatoes. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
  5. Stir in Kale leaves and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until wilted.
  6. Serve over fresh pasta or with crunchy Italian bread.
