Slow Cooker Pasta e Fagioli Soup - 13g Carbs, 3g Fiber, 4g Sugar

From: - Author: Alyssa
Rich, hearty and loaded with veggies and meat. A perfect, comforting soup for Fall! 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!
Serves: 8

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lb lean ground beef
2 whole carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1 medium onion, diced
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
2 cans (14.5 oz each) beef broth
2 whole bay leaves
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Salt and pepper, to taste (I added 1 tsp salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper)
1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup ditalini pasta, uncooked

Add olive oil to a large skillet and add in ground beef. Cook until browned and no longer pink.
Place the beef in a slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients except for the beans and pasta.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. 30 minutes before serving stir in beans and pasta.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Discard bay leaves before serving.
Serve immediately while hot.
