To get this soup recipe simply proper, I attempted to persuade the husband that he wanted to take me to Olive Backyard on a weekly foundation (I began by saying bi-weekly however I might simply really feel his eyes start to roll) till I bought it *simply* proper. If he had agreed, I additionally had a secret agenda to not excellent a recipe for the subsequent 4 months. That may have been plenty of Olive Backyard journeys!

Nevertheless, he didn’t purchase it. He is aware of me and my secret agendas too effectively by now. BUT he has taken me on a couple of dates to Olive Backyard, and that is the soup I order every time! So I did have a fairly good thought precisely how I wished it to style and this soup is fairly near the precise pasta e Fagioli you’d get at Olive Backyard!
This isn’t only a soup recipe the place the crockpot makes issues tremendous easy; it’s one the place the sluggish cooker makes the whole lot extra tasty! By sluggish cooking the components all day together with a hearty tomato-based sauce like Prego Chunky Backyard, the components have an exquisite probability to meld and heighten.

I attempted this recipe by placing the dried pasta into the crockpot and cooking it that means, however I didn’t LOVE the style as a lot as when the pasta was cooked individually. If you’re trying to save an additional pot and make issues simpler, you may add within the pasta about 30 minutes earlier than time for supper (then set the crockpot to excessive). Nevertheless, if you’re on the lookout for the style of the Olive Backyard soup, I might prepare dinner it individually. The little little bit of purple wine vinegar tossed within the pasta balances the acidity of all of the tomato very effectively. So in case you prepare dinner the pasta within the crockpot, add in vinegar (or a minimum of slightly to style!)
