PASTA E FAGIOLI

As the temperatures drop and we are desperately trying to continue to dine outside, it is time for soup. This popular soup is a meal in a bowl with heart-healthy legumes and veggies. Skip any additional salt, as the turkey bacon should add enough to this satisfying bowl of pasta e fagioli. And yes, turkey bacon is a processed food, but it can still fit into a healthy diet.
