Pasta Fagioli

I have a recipe printed off but can’t figure out where it came from. I’ve been really careful lately to either make sure that the credit is printed off on the recipe or I write it out myself. Somehow, it was missed on this one.  I searched Pinterest and did a search through the internet but nothing matches.

Here’s the recipe!  I changed a couple of things:  instead of hamburger, I used sweet Italian sausage links, sliced up into quarters; used onion powder instead of a yellow onion; increased the oregano and basil because I love Italian spices.

Ingredients:

1 pound sweet Italian links, sliced into quarters

2 tbsp. onion powder

2 medium carrots, chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 ounces each), not drained

15 ounce can of red kidney beans, not drained

15 ounce can of Great Northern beans, not drained

15 ounce can of tomato sauce

1 tbsp. vinegar

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. oregano

1 tbsp. basil

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. thyme

8 ounces of Dinatali pasta, cooked according to package directions – MINUS 2 minutes!
