Wintry Beef 'n' Bean Pasta

(1 Votes)
30 Min

When it's cold outside and you want to serve up some stick-to-your-ribs goodness, throw together this comforting combination of meat, beans, and pasta. With a bowl of this and some warm, crusty bread, you'll be all set to curl up by the fire.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon browning and seasoning sauce
  • 2 (14 to 16 ounces each) cans cannellini beans (white kidney beans), undrained
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 pound uncooked elbow pasta
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. In a 6-quart soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and garlic and brown 4 to 6 minutes, or until no pink remains in beef.
  2. Add tomatoes, broth, water, browning and seasoning sauce, beans, parsley, oregano, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Bring to a boil and add pasta. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Stir in Parmesan cheese and serve in bowls.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Way too much oregano! Should it be 1/4 teaspoon? That taste overwhelmed the dish, which says a lot considering all the pasta and beans.

Not trying to say too much since we love 99% of the Mr. Food recipes .... had to throw away all the leftovers which was easily 4+ servings wasted. The basic pasta fagioli w/beef/cheese was fine, but all the seasonings were way off.

Will certainly give this a try this winter. As always, I do think this is more servings than listed (at least 6), but I still love the variety in your recipes can adjust the recipes to suit our needs.

What is Browning or Seasoning Sauce?

It is in a bottle and it's called Kitchen Bouquet
