I saw this recipe on Facebook recently… and just had to make it…

A simple rendition of Olive Garden’s “Pasta e Fagioli Soup”…

or Pasta with Beans…

I usually make soups in colder weather but, this was an exception… My guys and I both love soups…

This is where I found this simple version…

although I didn’t have the Spices of Dried Basil and Dried Thyme… but, will use them later I’m sure…

All ingredients were typical finds in the grocery store…  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and it makes a big pot…

More soups to come this winter I am sure!…

I browned Italian Sausage… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drained…

and then proceeded to add all of the ingredients…

I skipped the step of cooking carrots- celery- onion and just added after cut into small pieces… Figured they would cook and did!… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drain beans and rinse…

The rest is just putting together…

It does suggest that pasta be cooked separately and added when serving…

Another thing you can choose to do or not… Will keep pasta from soaking up liquids… which I agree is a Good Idea!…

When I see something I really like… and see potential in it… I buy it!…

This was at my favorite thrift store…

and only $3.99…

It is handmade…

Plaid Fleece… sewed and tied… into the cutest jacket

I knew I would be changing the buttons… All that was needed…

It said “Fall” to me with the colors of Autumn…

I chose big buttons of different fall colors… dark brown… rust brown… beige… moss-green…

There is a homemade tag sewed in the neck… that says made by “Sis”… a cute gift from a good sister I would say…

or at least that is “my thought”…

Dough was divided evenly into 6 smaller bowls…

Vibrant colors appeared… as I stirred coloring into dough!

and then you dropped by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets…

Bake at 350 degrees… making approximately 42 cookies!
