  • Pasta Fagioli
    Recipe contributed by my mother-in-law Angie Perin
    • 1 pound lima beans
    • 1 ham hock bone
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 2 small cloves garlic (chopped fine)
    • 1/2 can tomato paste
    • 1 cup elbow macaroni
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    Soak beans overnight. Place beans and ham hock bone in 3 1/2 quarts of cold water. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours. In a frying pan saute garlic in oil. Stir and add tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove garlic and discard. Add sauce to beans with a dash of salt and pepper. Add more water if soup is to thick. Remove ham hock and simmer for 2 hours until beans are cooked. Add macaroni and cook 10-12 minutes.
