Super Easy Slow Cooker Pasta e Fagioli Soup. Rich, hearty and loaded with veggies and meat. A perfect, comforting soup for Fall!

Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing one of my favorite soups: Pasta e Fagioli. This is comfort food at it’s best. Super hearty, meaty, thick Italian soup loaded with veggies, meat and beans.

Best of all this soup is made in a slow cooker. That means little to no prep time and lots of flavor. This soup simmers low and slow for 8 hours!

This soup takes just a bit of prep time and is super easy to throw together. I like to brown the meat for extra flavor and throw it into the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients. I like to add in the pasta and beans about 30 minutes before serving. This ensures they are tender but not soggy.

Serve the soup with a side salad, crusty bread and dig in!
