I Need Comfort Food

I’m cold.  I’m sleepy.  I’m grumpy.  I need comfort food.

I think I’m going to make this for dinner:

Pasta Fagioli

1 tablespoon diced garlic 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 diced purple onion
1/2 cup chopped (or torn) fresh cilantro
1 can Italian style tomatoes
1 can Cannellini beans (white kidney beans)
1 can Kidney Beans, dark or light
6 oz of small shell pasta
4-6 oz. of spicy italian sausage
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 cup of water
1 cup of white wine
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

Heat oil in large stock pot and brown the sausage with the garlic and onion. Add all remaining ingredients, except for the pasta shells and shredded cheese. Simmer until heated through and beans are tender. Toss in the pasta and cook until pasta is al dente.

Serve with sprinkling of shredded parmesan to taste.

The recipe is courtesy of the multi-talented Joelle.  I’ll probably add a few more vegetables and some beef broth to make it heartier.

Yum.  I’m hungry.  Thanks for the idea, Joelle.
