Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli At Home

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of soup is 156 calories, 2 grams fat and Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS 4. So flavorful, this recipe makes a TON of soup to stock your freezer with. It’s great as a first course or double the serving size to 2 cups and it becomes a very filling main course soup. You’ll want to add this satisfying dish to your soup repertoire. It’s a keeper for sure…
