Pasta E Fagioli

What better to warm up with on a chilly winter day than a hearty soup?  This one is flavorful, healthy and packed with goodness! It has veggies, beans, and pasta, and it makes a great weeknight meal because it is easy to make! It also happens to be vegan and gluten free, because I have used gluten free elbow pasta!
