Amelia's Italian Restaurant Pasta Fagioli

Savory soups such as pasta fagioli (FAH-zhool) are brilliant main dish choices. These one-dish sensations are easy on the cook and offer dinner guests a nutritious repast.

This week, we're in the kitchen at Amelia's to watch the chef do his turn on this Italian classic.

White kidney beans are also called cannellini beans. They are available both in dry and canned forms.

Cannellini beans were originally cultivated in Argentina but became an Italian stalwart, widely used in their cuisine around the world. The beans are particularly popular in salads and soups. The bean has smooth texture and nutty flavor and is an excellent source of iron, magnesium and folate.
