Pasta e Fagioli

I kept seeing these beans at the market and some older women filling bags full of them. What were they? Why would they want to go to so much trouble – shelling all of those beans?
Then I saw the Well Preserved Blog post and decided to give them a try. I bought a 10 pound box of beans on Saturday, along with bunches of grapes and 20 pounds of tomatoes. It was going to be a busy weekend!
The beans and seasonings ready for the canner. Now on to the tomatoes for the pasta e fagioli.
Between the grapes and the tomatoes I gave the food mill a good workout, or maybe I got a good workout turning the handle? Either way, more food for the pantry.
